Support and Feedback / [BUG REPORT] MC GUI SIZE ERROR
« on: January 28, 2021, 09:57:41 »
What to do: click multiple times "Show hidden and system files and folders" at the main windows
Expected result: no GUI change except panel contents
Real Result: panel with drop-down list of common disks and destinations, free space and panel management icons shrinks vertically  pixel by pixel every time you click until it reaches text font height.
MC: ver Portable

Possible cause: Rounding error of internal calculations?

Hello Mathias,

I've isolated a bug. While file search process is parsing OEM 866 encoded text files, with lines of pure latin (ASCII) and pure Cyrillic characters, search stops on the second line of Cyrillic characters and does not proceed further.

When just one last character of the second Cyrillic line is removed, search work correctly - the ASCII text at the end of the file is found!

Force search in ASCII encoding solves the problem (but some of my text files are Unicode, so i really need Auto mode).

Thanks for great software and your hard work,
Best regards.

Hello, Mathias,

Would you be so kind to consider adding some more options to the "Overwrite the existing file in the target location" dialogue window?

"For all conflicts / Overwrite all if ..." would benefit from:

  • More >>  Keep both if source is Newer OR Larger
    (it is needed to avoid useless duplicates current "keep both" options create)
  • More >>  Overwrite all files if source is Newer OR Larger
    (it is needed when file is updated but size did not change)

Thanks in advance,
best regards.

Hello there, Mathias,

Long time no see. So, there is yet another unwanted feature. When using "Tools\To Clipboard" section, one might get the tab (pane) name instead of the paths that were found by search (Alt+F7) function.

File -> Find Files... -> Tools -> To Clipboard -> Files/Folder Paths

I presume, the reason is that the search result is treated as virtual folder (list) internally and there is no logic capable of extracting the real path for each file out of the data structure used.
Hope is would not bother you too much to solve the issue.
Thanks for your support through the years,
Best regards.

Hello there. Mathias,

Another small bug report. Just now the MC x64 v9.0 (build 2532) Portable has shown some bug:

1. Started copying a list of files and folders to neighbouring directory, not included in the list
2. Copy process asked whether i like to replace files, I chose to replace with larger ones only.
3. Copy finished OK, but dialog window still in the state of copying with Interrupt button
4. Closing the window causes warning dialog "Do you want to interrupt the copy process", ignoring the fact there no files to copy left.
5. Dialog does NOT close even with close button, stop/interrupt button or Alt+F4
6. The bug is rare and not easily reproduceable.

Applied logs to mail via standard report dialog in the application.

Thanks a lot for your hard work, hope it was useful for you. Best regards,

Hello, Mathias,

Could not get to you via e-mail as usual, so decided to post here.

There is a slight problem with hotkeys processing. Strange enough, but even non-literal combinations (i.e. ALT + SHIFT + ENTER to calculate folder size) do not work with non-latinbased keyboard layouts. Switching to US English solves the problem. The windows itself has English interface by default.

Thanks in advance for your hard work,
Grateful as always,

Hello there, Mathias, thanks a lot for your hard work.

Is there any chance for MC to get real multi-threading and separate threads for GUI tabs and device\network operations?
I know thread synchronization is not the easiest thing to do, but once done there will be huge improvement in overall usability.
Hanging the whole process including main window thread while waiting for file system API response is very problematic for active multi-tab users  :-[
Let the tab show some progress animation or text, preferably with cancel button and you will be praised in centuries  ;)

Thanks a lot in advance for your consideration.
