Support and Feedback / Re: Huge fonts since last update
« on: December 03, 2020, 02:46:13 »
Odd fonts, indeed. Sometimes the fonts in my tabs change to a tiny size, as well.
Have not seen any case where they are changed.
Nothing is changed around the tabs.

Have somethings changed in Windows when it happens. Have screen res  / DPI changed in Windows will app was running ? or something similar ?

Sorry. I misspoke. It is the "Device Dropdown list" that I am referring to.
The font shrinks in size sometimes when making changes using the "Quick Look N Feel Setup".
Probably an issue with Windows 10 itself.  Not really a problem, just thought it was odd.
It goes back to normal after quitting & restarting.

Most settings such as favorites, custom commands, etc are automatically saved when you set them.

If you want specific tabs & paths to be opened each time you start, try this...

Set up your window(s) with the tabs & paths you want when starting up.
Under the FILE menu, select TAB SESSIONS - SAVE AS and choose a name like "my default startup tabs"
Now, again under FILE menu, choose MANAGE..
Choose "my default startup tabs" if it isn't already chosen.
CHECKMARK on [Autoload this tab session at startup], and click on [Save Changes]
It should now be autoloading those tabs every startup.  Plus, you can set up other tab configurations depending on what you are working on & switch at will.
It's awesome & so much power in a program only supported by donations.

A suggestion is to use "HELP MENU - BACKUP/RESTORE to often save your current configuration.  This saves all setting to a ZIP file.  That way you can experiment with settings without fear of totally borking everything.

I kept working on it.  There is a global command "Calculate Folder Size".  There is also a module specific command "Toggle selection & calculate folder".

Somehow I had my keyboard shortcut set to the "Toggle selection & calculate folder". Setting it to "Calculate Folder Size" got it back in order.

Hope this helps someone.

Odd fonts, indeed. Sometimes the fonts in my tabs change to a tiny size, as well.

I can select a single folder, and shift-alt-return, or use the command under Tools menu, and it calculates the selected folder.

If I select multiple folders, it just calculates the first folder of the group.

If I select NO folders, it does nothing. It should calculate ALL folders, in this case.

Is this a bug, or just something I have configured wrong?  It worked fine before I upgraded.

Excellent! I found dark purple is easily visible without overwhelming the white filename text.

Awesome. Always excited to see an update to my favorite tool.

I am trying dark mode.  Since I usually have the grid lines on, the bright white on grey seems more distracting than useful in Dark mode.  Is there a way to make them more subtle?

Thank you for the replies.  Its one of those features that I got used to using for many years. Due to that 'training', I keep trying to do it in MC even though I know it's not there.

I was wondering if MultiCommander "rectangle selection" can be configured to work more like the Windows 10 file explorer?

In particular...

In Window file explorer, if I "rectangle select" some files, then move the mouse arrow to the bottom of the window, it will automatically start scrolling, allowing me to select more files that weren't originally able to fit on the screen.

Trying the same thing (for me, at least) in MultiCommander only lets me 'lasso' files that are shown in the panel. Moving the arrow below the bottom filename does nothing.

Is this behavior possible? If so, what in the settings do I need to change?

Also, I don't understand why people pay for other file managers, when MultiCommander is basically the same, or better,  than the others?

There is no virus in MultiCommander that I can find. I've ran it through 5 different scanners.

Never had any issue like that.

I'd suggest rebooting, installing a new copy of the portable version in a new folder. Still having the same issue?

This looks cool. But can you just provide the run.exe as a downloadable file?

Although I've done a little programming with AutoHotkey, etc, Im just not familiar with how to compile the source code you give. I don't even know what VS is?

Please help??

Support and Feedback / Re: NEWTAB option in button wizard mode
« on: February 10, 2019, 06:25:37 »
Please give a directions I posted in the start of the thread a try.

Try it in two blank buttons.

On one, set the checkmark for the 'Open path in new tab'  property.  On the other button, don't set the checkmark.

Both buttons seem to do exactly the same thing, regardless of the checkmark.  :o  Neither opens the folder in a new tab.

Thank you. That does work fine.

Must be a bug or something that Mathias overlooked.

Support and Feedback / NEWTAB option in button wizard mode
« on: January 01, 2019, 17:58:12 »
I used the button editor Wizard mode to add a new button.  I drag a path to the button for my  'C:\portable'  folder.

I selected the 'Go To File'  and  'Open path in new tab'  properties.

Which give me this  MC.Explorer.Goto PATH="C:\PORTABLE" NEWTAB

However, the button always opens in the current tab.  It never actually starts a new tab. Is this a bug, or possibly a setting in the configuration is preventing the new tab from opening?

I've had this issue with more than MultiCommander.   An easy way to solve it is to just have a batch file or script access the mapped drives when restarting.

I use AutoHotKey for this and some other startup tasks.

There is a script called AutoHotKey.ahk which runs when AHK is started.  In it I have the following...

; Try to initialize mapped folders...
DriveSpaceFree, FreeSpace, X:\
DriveSpaceFree, FreeSpace, Y:\
DriveSpaceFree, FreeSpace, Z:\
All this does is check how much space is free on each drive.  It's enough to get the drives recognized.  If timing is still an issue, it's very easy to insert a delay into the script.   

Something similar could also be done using a standard MSDOS batch file....

dir X: >NUL:
dir Y: >NUL:
dir Z: >NUL:

I think that would accomplish the same thing.
