OK. Thanks Mathias.
BTW Did you get the dump I posted? 
I still get 'bad gateway' using the upload link here.
No.. it does not find any matching debug symbols.  What version is that ?. might be that symbols for that version is removed.

MC 13.3 b2964 x64 on W11 x64
Just an FYI...
This build has pretty much solved the RMB context menu issues I had.  I did have a few strange instances where it worked fully then stopped, then worked partially but it is currently 100% since I enabled legacy icons for the context menu.

Hang on exit still an issue, I guess maybe 4 of 5 exits leave the window hanging & unresponsive.  It can still always be killed by TM>end task though.

Thanks for your continuing work on my favorite program Mathias :)

I'm not able to recreate any hang on exit.. So I have no idea what can cause it to happen for you.. I must be something that is unique for your setup. against most others..
Problem is to figure out what that can be

Found the crash report

The Crash is in XCShMain.x64.dll , (  PDF-XChange ) and the crash is because of a "NULL_POINTER_READ", So it is definitely a Bug in their code.

Make sure you have latest version, Searching online I find many user have issues with their pdf preview handler.

Not able to reproduce that..  But that is also not the windows default pdf viewer.  Have you some 3rd party pdf viewer installed that installed its own preview handler ?

Was the crash report sent ? Did you note what crashId was shown ?

You might have turn it on, in the toolbar it is the two icons after the colorwheel.  Or pressed the hotkey for it  Alt+Q / Alt+Shift+Q

Support and Feedback / Re: Auto Focus on New files ?
« on: November 29, 2023, 11:25:53 »
Nothing like that is there at the moment..
I been thinking about adding it. But the problem is that all file copy is done in background to not lock up UI..  so if this should work there needs to be many rules when it should not do it and when to do it.
Since if you copy many files you do not want to change focus all the time a new files is added and since UI is not locked.. You can be browsing around at the same time in the folder and then you do not want to to change focus item for you..

So it is something that looks simple to have.. but is not.

Hi,

There is an issue in favourite windows (since months, I've already informed you in the past by mail), there is not text visible on focused item. It doesn't matter which colour you set.

BR
Lukasz
Yes it go to white text color, so having white background make it fails.
Hmm not sure the colors in that window should even be customizable.. it should maybe just use the colors of the explorer panel. feels strange that you can customize that..

You can change if the favorites should be shown with name or path..
Right click on favorites window and select options or right click on empty space in the "current path" field in a Explorer Panel

You can type commands in the command line field like "cd <path>"  or other things..
And then with Alias in Menu > Configuration > manage Alias

You can define a text that you write in the command line field. and what that should be translated into..
So for example you can create an alias "sys32" that do "cd c:\Windows\System32"

But you can "pin" server in the network (NET:) and they will always be shown there, It will cache it.. and you can often just access directly without scanning again
Alright, this has nothing to do with the beta version, but I don't understand why the fritz-nas icon under the network icon is not working and instead a new icon has been created at the bottom. Please watch my screenshot. This has nothing to do with reachability. How does pinning work with NET:? i have no idea.

NET: is a virtual device that just shows and manage network connection.. When you browse to a network location \\Server,  a new entry in the device root is created and that device is accessible from there.
This is because normally you browse devices from the device dropdown and not the tree

You want to send selected file to the printer..  MC do not support printing file..  send list of files to clipboard and paste into notepad. and then print from that.

Sorry I should have specified 'hang'  ::)

I've got a dump via TM whilst it was in a hung state (TM doesn't show a not responding flag, just 0% CPU use).
The /upload URL says 404 dead so I'll send you a link.   ;)

BTW At first glance BREAKPOINT_80000003 caught my eye...
It always say that been doing a dump from a hang.
The url in the forum link is working http://multicommander.com/support/upload

Unfortunately nothing gets written.  Nothing in Event Viewer either.
On both W10 & 11 on the 22H.xx builds I'm seeing MC hang most of the time when closed.
It is still visible on the desktop & via TM can be forced closed.
Only RMB on taskbar works nothing else reacts to keys or mouse. The RMB/taskbar dialog doesn't answer clicks.
It always successfully saves state even tho it doesn't complete the close / exe termination properly.

Maybe I can run a trace on the exe when I close it? Any recommendations?
Hang not a crash, Okey. That big difference. then it is probably waiting for Windows to return after a OS call.
You can create a dump and upload it and then I might be able to see what it is waiting for

Support and Feedback / Re: Panel Tab Width
« on: November 15, 2023, 22:48:44 »
Panel tab width ? You meen the size of the Tab for the panels ?
In core setting using Layout > Panel Tab, you can set TabWidth and you can also have a fixed width

You can changed the button panel font by editing the MultButtons.xml file.. 
See https://forum.multicommander.com/forum/index.php/topic,1608.msg5850.html

10X, working  :)
SRY, as for the buttons font, MC goes back to default font after restart.
and as for the tabs on the tab panel I see that if I change the fonts than the height of the tab is also changing in height. Where can I change the height of the tabs as a default.

No, if you edit the file MultiButtons.xml file, it should not go away after a restart of MC.

Height on tab headers is based on font.

Ok so it happens when MC is creating the file. Hard to say why. Might be that the drop data is not unicode and something goes wrong in the conversion..
If you drop on desktop / explorer it is created correct ? (to rule out that the program that create the dropdata is doing something wrong.)

Hi.

I received a new desktop at work with WIN11 and since the change of the OS I get gibberish on the email subject. I attached a screen capture to show it. I used to have a WIN 7 OS on the old desktop.
Since I work in Israel than the default language is Hebrew and the HEB fonts are changing to some other symbols.
Does any one knows how to solve it?

Might be that you use a font that does not support those characters

It is just the beta.. ? or all version ? all folder location ?
It's just the beta. I always do this when I install a new program or a update. Do you never use protected folders? Do you start your MC as Admin? My Windows account is an admin account. Maybe that's the difference.

I know what network shares are.. you talked about checking symbols and stuff..
I have not seen any issues with accessing a network shares, uses it daily my self without any issue
Method A and Method B works not for me, maybe you have different settings.

Not sure I understand what you issue is.. something with network connection ?

So you only got the problem in beta. strange. absolutely nothing is changed about browsing file shares.
There is a difference in User mode and elevated to admin mode, By default they do not share mapped network drives. but that is a registry settings for windows. But I guess that is not the issue.
Browse network method is depending on how you network setup looks like. Windows got 3 different ways to do it. and they all do different things..  Looking in the log (ctrl+L) and it will output everything it finds

But you can "pin" server in the network (NET:) and they will always be shown there, It will cache it.. and you can often just access directly without scanning again

Thanks for the explanation Mathias.
Any ideas about failure to shut down properly on Win11?
No.. Should be no difference in Win11 and Win10. Have not been able to reproduce. Impossible to figure out without being able to reproduce.
Does MC create and sends crash report ? what CrashID did it receives.. Then I can manually check the crash dump.

The admin-mode don't work anymore.
Not able to reproduce that
It is just the beta.. ? or all version ? all folder location ? If its hang it is often MC waiting for a call to windows to comeback.. So then it can be anything that hook them self into Windows that causing it..

Your what ?
A "network share" is a shared resource, like a file or folder, made available over a network for access by other devices. It allows files to be shared and accessed remotely within a connected network.
The network shares are usually consolidated under the network symbol in the directory tree.

I have not seen any issues with accessing a network shares, uses it daily my self without any issue
