Support and Feedback / Re: Moving dir/file with F6
« on: January 21, 2022, 11:29:29 »
There is no settings to remove it. Since some copy settings and extra copy features only can be set from there, And not showing it prevents that.
Just pressing return key will confirm dialog and close it.

But you can create a new copy command by create a new UserDefinedCommand and use the MC.EXPLORER.COPY command with NODIALOG option
Then assign that command to a hotkey

In the CopyTo dialog you get when starting a copy operation just and enter a filter, You adding a exclude filter by adding "-" at the beginning of it. So a filter of "-*.*" will exclude all files and only copy the folders.
Just make sure the option "do not copy/move empty folders" are checked

1. I been think about something like that but not sure if a super simple text editor really is needed when notepad exists on all system, because it would only be a simple editor
2. You can edit and rename the column
3. App Statusbar is used for other things.. but the plan is to maybe use the Explorer Panels bottom area where num selected files now are.
4. it is possible, disabled from UI config because of some reason I forgot. Was probably some problem with it
5. Don't understand?
6. You can, it depends on what color settings is enabled
7. You can add most of the hot keys you want your self. and hotkey can also active script so you can do lots with that

This is a Windows security issue. Somethings is blocking MC from renaming the file and make windows return a ACCESS DENIED error., Then MC ask to retry doing it as admin in case it it a permission issue.
But when it is not. it is often security software that are not allowing the file to be renamed for some reason. Maybe it is in the process of scanning it. or something. Or something else have a lock on the file.

Pressing Ctrl+L and in the fileoperation log you can see what error is sent from Windows when this is happening

Not sure what you mean.. Maybe you are trying to say something else.

But if you has a zip file and browse into that with mc and select to view or execute a file. That file must be unpack from the zip to some place.. But MC only unzip that file. not the entire archive. Because often that are not wanted you want if you only want to view one file. How ever web pages that are save are built up from many many files. so when the web browser opens the html file and want to read the rest. the rest is not there.

I cannot reproduce or I misunderstanding you.

Can you provide steps on how to recreate that ?

MC will not temporary unzip the entire zip file when you click on a file in a file. That is why it is not working. And option for temporary unpacking entire zip or just the clicked file is planned but not implemented yet.

« on: January 11, 2022, 07:45:44 »
The date and time column should be there by default. If you done something to remove it, then do like AlanJB say. to get the column back.

Also make sure that the Date/Time settings in Explorer Panel have not be unchecked.
Explorer Panel Settings > Display (Tab) 
Under the Date / Time format section you find many date / time settings.

Sorry. This is a english language forum. You need to write in english or wait and hope that someone that understand your language will answer.

I browse and copy files from zip daily my self. and I have not notice that.
What are you doing when browsing inside zips. Copy files , viewing in place. ? adding files to zip ?
Can the zip have been change from the outside while MC was showing the content ? (then the cached data may be invalid, but then it should jump backwards to where the zip is located)

I do not think you need to restart.  Try to do a force refresh (shift + F2/F5 depending on keysetup) when you are at the location where the zip is or at root level of zip. Then it should remove the cache of everything under that location.

So you got file that are named as urls?  hmm wait you can't have : in a file name so you must then mean you got a text file and the in that text files you got URL's ?

Support and Feedback / Re: Delete command - Explorer method
« on: December 03, 2021, 17:23:15 »
The problem is, I don't get the option from MC to delete to recycle bin if pressing delete on keyboard. But with right-click -> delete it deletes it to recycle bin without a problem.

Then you are on a device that it detects as recycle bin not supported. Networks folder are normally not supported for that. Unless you do crazy workarounds.
So I guess it detects that it is on a network share

When you delete files from network drives, they do not go into Recycle bin. I have found a workaround, where I change the location of one of my personal folders (for example Saved Games under C:/users/username/) to the root of my network drive.

This way, when I delete a file from a network drive, it ends up in Recycle bin.

This works in all other file explorers and I only cannot get it to work in MC, because it uses it's own delete routine. But I love MC the most, so I'm in a pickle here :)
If you select to delete to recycle bin the delete is actually handed of to Windows. And Windows will move files to recycle bin if recycle bin is supported for that device.

Menu > Tools > Rename
And select lower case.  And all selected files/folders are renamed to lower case

I have exactly the same problem. It must be something with windows 11. After update, cant see [..] in first level folders. Could you please update it, so it does not respect the hidden folder [..]?
try the current 11.5 beta

Not sure if I remembered it wrong that
before I upgraded recently,
subfolders were included when filtering or searching.
Now no matter when filtering or searching(F3)
filenames with my keyword in subfolders cannot be found.
You might have change the "Sub Levels" option in the search dialog. if this is "0" then it will not search in subfolders.
Normally you want it set to "All"

Trying an searching I solved the problem.
I write the solution here for any interested:
MessageBox( "test", $__CMDRESULT, 0 );

I suggest you to explain better the meaning and the use of $__CMDRESULT in the manual, AND explain better the use of MC.Explorer.GetViewFilter and other "get" functions.


MC.Explorer.GetViewFilter command are not a normal MultiScript command. it is a CustomCommand. this are simple commands that access things in MC via the same way the UI is. eg like when you click on something,
And MultiScript can call this higher level commands. problem is that they are fire and forget commands.. they can't normally return anything.

Normal MultiScript function acts with core function in MC.  problem is set/getfilter is somethings that exists in a higher UI level.
An the _CMDRESULT is a workaround to let some special custom commands return back information to the MultiScript engine

Support and Feedback / Re: FTP server and cyrillic
« on: November 20, 2021, 17:14:24 »
Currently there is no way to force MC to use UTF8 with ftp servers.

When connecting to a FTP server, MC will ask the ftp server about what features it support and if it say it support UTF8 then UTF8 will be used for getting file list and such.

If you look in the ftp connection log, at the beginning is there a "> FEAT" line ? and the following list after that is a list of features the FTP server support.

Look at the UserDefinedCommands under the Examples section. There is a MultiScript named "Create Filter and Select"

This script works for me, so it should work.
Or maybe there is something else in you the script that makes it fail.

Eh ? I don't understand. Foxit complain about signature for MC when you open a pdf ?

Well MC is not digitally signed if that is what foxit complain about.
Should be some way to allow it in foxit I guess. Never used foxit so don't know.
