See pic.
Last file column is not fully visible (it has smaller width than previous).
I'd like MC to automatically scroll file list when file cursor moves to such "partial" column.

Support and Feedback / Issue with copy to existing file
« on: October 22, 2013, 10:17:53 »
E.g. i have two panels with the same folder x:\temp, and there are 2 files there:
Code: [Select]
I want to copy file_bak.txt to file.txt (replace). But after copying file.txt remains, instead file.txt (1) is created which is the copy of file_bak.txt. No overwrite dialog appears.

1. Open some archive on a flash drive
2. Start copying files from that archive
3. Switch from copy queue to MC.

Result: file list remains empty (see pic) until copy is finished.

Is it a bug?

1. Keyboard customization dialog captions "Hotkey" and "Name tag" seem to miss translation strings.

2. Delete dialog does'n use localized string for caption at the start. E.g. try to delete non-empty folder. Warning dialog will be shown. At this time delete dialog has caption "Deleting".

3. I don't understand the purpose of putting options "Continue on error" and "Delete all" in delete dialog.
  a) if there are many "problematic" files (ro/hidden/system) you will simply have no time to check them;
  b) buttons "Skip all", "Delete all" in error dialog should act exactly as if those options were enabled.

So instead of one properly working scheme there are now two partially working schemes. Btw, there is the same problem with copy/move dialog. If there're many blocked files you always need to confirm skip/delete partial. Try to copy e.g. "Documents and settings" folder (Win XP).

4. Color rules dialog is non-localizable

5. When i press "Add" button in color rules dialog, MC freezes and can't be killed.

Support and Feedback / Folder sorting issue
« on: July 12, 2013, 15:27:29 »
I've enabled separate sorting for files and folders, always sort folders by name. Folders which begins with non-alphanumeric characters are shown in the end. E.g.
Code: [Select]
Test Folder

But "!" and "#" precedes alphanumeric characters, so they should be at the top:
Code: [Select]
Test Folder

Is this by design?

Support and Feedback / Some localization issues in 3.2.1
« on: July 04, 2013, 07:30:44 »
1. It seems that additional columns like comment for pictures or tags for music can't be displayed in unicode

2. Column sets are stored in the settings with current localized captions, so when you change MC language, columns will be displayed in other language

Support and Feedback / MultiScript - GetTime Broken
« on: May 02, 2013, 13:48:27 »
Btw  "GetTime(1);" will return UTC time..

As you can see on the pic, both GetTime() and GetTime(1) return the same value

Beta Releases / Bugs (or misbehaviour) in 3.1.0 b1400
« on: April 26, 2013, 05:32:29 »
1. Since b1379 there are two file cursors - in each file panel

2. Since b1379 hovering (file cursor follows mouse) works for inactive panel too. In earlier builds it worked only in active panel.

3. There is a bug with cursor following mouse pointer (hovering).
 a. Set small wait time (20 ms)
 b. Create quicklaunch button which accepts files as parameters (e.g. notepad)
 c. Drop some file(s) to that button
 d. Close application (notepad)
 e. Move mouse to MC but don't click, then move it over files/folders
 Result: cursor following for active tab (from which files were dropped) is broken. Wait time is not 20ms.
 f. Now click on the Explorer panel.
 g. Move mouse over files/folders
 Result: cursor following is restored. Wait time is 20 ms again.

4. Changelog says that SetActiveTab support /PREV /NEXT params, but they are seem to be missing in custom commands

Feature Requests and Suggestions / Proxy support for FTP
« on: March 01, 2013, 08:26:24 »
Is it possible to add proxy support for FTP connection? E.g. system settings may be used.

How can i disconnect from FTP? It seems there is neither popup menu item nor hotkey.

Support and Feedback / Bugs with selection
« on: January 11, 2013, 13:07:47 »
Applies to 2.7.2, 2.8.1 and 3.0 (32/64-bit); Commander style, both default and modified settings, all view modes (list/details/thumb)

I. Selection remains after copying

1. Move cursor to the first file in a folder
2. Press Shift+End
3. Copy files

Result: After copiyng selection remains until you move file cursor. The same happens if you press Shift+Home from the last file in a folder.
But if you move file cursor before copying, selection is cleared after operation.

II. Not all files selected

1. Move cursor to the last file in a folder
2. Press Shift+Home
3. Copy files
4. Repeat steps 1 and 2

Result: Not all files selected. More often there is only first file selected.

1. Start copy operation of large directory (e.g. Program Files)
2. Start second copy operation of other large directory (e.g. Windows) and add it to existing queue
3. Go to copy operation dialog and try abort operation while it is preapring

Result: operation can not be aborted until preparing is finished.

Now there are 2 settings categories: Core settings and Explorer panel settings.

I suggest adding third category for only color settings.

P.S. Maybe other settings should be reorganized too.

Support and Feedback / [BUG] Changing file and folder state colors
« on: November 07, 2012, 08:27:40 »
This happens with clean installation.

1. Go to Explorer panel settings > Colors
2. Check 'Use file specified background color'
3. Choose e.g. File and Foldet state colors > Files  > Selected (bk. is white, text is red)
4. Uncheck 'Use default background color'
5. Press [Invert] (sample shows bk. red and text white)
6. Press [OK]. You'll see that bk. color is now red, but text color is black instead of white

Feature Requests and Suggestions / 2 suggestions
« on: November 07, 2012, 08:19:38 »
1. When drive combos enabled for explorer panel and MC window size is quite small, buttons (tree, root etc) are not visible.

I see 3 ways to resolve this.
  a) Additional button (like arrow button in old MS Office toolbars) may appear which shows something like popup menu with inaccessible buttons
  b) Bar wrap, i.e. buttons which don't fit bar width should be shown at next line
  c) Additional toolbar (like drive bar)

2. Current file info. This was already suggested but it is especially actual now because of list mode.

In list view mode you can't see current file info (size, date, attr ...), so maybe a section in status bar can be used for that?

Support and Feedback / [Bug?] Remember open paths
« on: October 25, 2012, 10:15:01 »
I switched to list view and saved it as default layout. But if Remember open paths option disabled, after start Explorer panel has Detailed view. Is it a bug or by design?

Support and Feedback / User Defined Commands bug
« on: October 17, 2012, 06:09:59 »
1. Create user command, e.g. Test
2. Set its type to Multi Script
3. Check "Store script in external script file"
4. Enter full pathname to script file
5. Press Save

Result: MC terminates

Now launch MC, go to User Defined commands, select Test command. MC terminates.

So now you have to delete (or maybe rename - i haven't tried) script file.

Support and Feedback / Fast moving to sibling folder BUG
« on: October 09, 2012, 12:40:14 »
1. Enter some folder with many subfolders (there must be more than two columns in explorer panel).
2. Navigate no e.g. third column.
3. Enter some folder.
4. Press Ctrl+PgUp or Ctrl+PgDn.
5. Leave folder.

Result: explorer panel is unscrollable anymore (at lest by cursor keys) until you enter and leave some folder in the first two columns or parent folder.

Video attached (rename to .7z).


P.S. Although Ctrl+PgUp and Ctrl+PgDn are used for moving to sibling folder, they are allowed to be shortcuts in the keyboard customization. But don't work.

On the attached pic. you can see how the keyboard customization dialog looks after assigning Ctrl+PgDn key on View - Menu Bar

Support and Feedback / Bug with displaying Drives toolbar
« on: September 18, 2012, 08:17:38 »
If i set English language and disable drives toolbar, it is not displayed after restart. But if i choose Russian language, drives toolbar is always displayed.

No problem with Czech too.

Beta Releases / Multi Commander 2.7.1 BETA - Build 1178 - Bugs
« on: September 03, 2012, 05:51:14 »
Where do s.493-499 lines in Application.MultiCommander Core used? I can't find. Also no comments on h__p://

Btw, why are Shortcuts again included in text? I thought they are now added automatically.

Beta Releases / 2.6.0 b1159 - Questions
« on: August 10, 2012, 21:27:02 »
Is it normal that back, forward and history buttons (at the left of the command line) have no focus rectangle on mouse over?

Press the tree button or Alt+Num* to toggle it.  by default it is always off.
So each tab has its own tree? Or just some attribute? I think each explorer panel should have only one tree and it should be either always visible for all tabs or always hidden.

Beta Releases / Multi Commander 2.6 BETA - Build 1142 - Bugs
« on: July 27, 2012, 06:29:49 »

1. When 24x24 icons selected for explorer panel, icons overlap each other and filenames overlap icons.
2. If Quicklaunch bar (standalone) was hidden via menu View->Toolbars, it is shown after MC restart.
3. If Drives toolbar was hidden via menu View->Toolbars, it is shown again after Language change and MC restart.


Request. If "Forward keys to commandline" option enabled and Commandline bar is hidden, automaticaly show it when user types text and hide it again after command execution.

1. Picture viewer stretch does not always work correctly (see pics)

2. Localization.

a. Explorer panel s.435 "Selection status area" is translatable, but always displayed in english.
b. List elements "Show free space", "Show used space" for free space area are untranslatable
c. "View filter", "Network" and "Network browse method" are also untranslatable.

3. It is not always possible to open folders in the list by double click


Also with drive dropdown list disabled it is inconvenient to go to ftp, net or reg. One have to type "net:", "reg:", "ftp:" in the path field. Maybe add these buttons to drive buttons panel?
