Feature Requests and Suggestions / restart command
« on: March 26, 2013, 08:59:07 »
Please add a restart command for would also be better if everytime a change in setting requires restart of MC, users will be asked if they want to restart..users will choose between 'Yes' and 'No' buttons..upon pressing 'Yes' MC will automatically restart...there's no need to manually exit and click MC's icon in the desktop or taskbar..

Is it safe to delete the language files, except for the one you are using, in the application folder?

Script / Workaround with errors
« on: March 26, 2013, 07:45:38 »
      I made a workaround that lets me navigate as if there's a 'Computer' virtual folder. That is, I can go from Drive C to other Drives and vice versa using only the four arrow keys;left arrow key for going up (going to the parent) and right arrow key for going down(going to the focused subfolder).I'm comfortable with using just these four for navigation.
     What I did is I made folders named 'Local Disk (C)', 'Local Disk (D)'...etc in my Drive (E). I named others as 'Removable Disk (H)' and so on for external storage devices, then I made two user defined commands that do the going up and going down functions and assigned the previously mentioned keys to them. The 'go up' UDC checks if the current path is a root("C:\", "D:\"..etc). If it is, it goes to Drive (E) where the folders 'Local Disk (C)'...etc are..if not, it just simply goes to the parent of the current folder. The 'go down' UDC checks if the name of the folder in focus is the same with the folders I made in Drive (E). If it happens to be the same with one of them, it goes to the drive that corresponds to the name of the folder (that is, it goes to "C:\" if the folder's name is "Local Disk (C)"). If they aren't the same, it just opens the current focused folder. Obviously, this only works with the hotkeys I used. Using 'Enter' or the mouse will not yield the same result.
     Unfortunately, there are some issues that I'm experiencing with the scripts I made. They're not that significant but if there are ways to avoid
them then I'll gladly I want the scripts checked and any helpful idea and/or suggestion is welcome...
   BTW, these scripts also feature calculation of subfolders' sizes of the destination folder...
   I don't know why but I thought that to include '\' in a string you should write "\\". In my case, when I wrote "C:\\" to mean C:\, it didn't work
    the result was C:\\. So I just used "C:\" for C:\..the scripts are as follows..
Note: The comments in the scripts aren't included in the actual code
      I'm using Commander Style Look and Feel so entering a folder won't select anything and calculate folder sizes will work with all the
      folders in the current path.

Go Up:
Code: [Select]
    //Stop current background process
    MC.RunUserCmd ID=1f0dd40bcbe544ae882ee46bf77c115b;
    @var $path = GetSourcePath();
    @var $roots[] = {"C:\", "D:\", "E:\", "F:\", "G:\", "H:\", "I:\", "J:\", "K:\", "L:\"};
    @var $isroot = 0;
    @var $i;
    for ($i = 0; $i < 10; $i++)
        @var $str = $roots[$i];
        if (StrIsEqual($path, $str))
            $isroot = 1;
    //if current path is a root, then go to "E:\"
    if ($isroot == 1)
        MC.Explorer.Goto SOURCE="E:\";
    //else go to the parent folder
        //Go to parent folder
        MC.RunCmd ID=ExplorerPanel.41052;
    MC.RunCmd ID=ExplorerPanel.41060;
    //Calculate folders' sizes
    MC.RunCmd ID=ExplorerPanel.51010;
Go Down:   
    //Stop current background process
    MC.RunUserCmd ID=1f0dd40bcbe544ae882ee46bf77c115b;
    @var $folder = GetSourceFocusPath();
    @var $links[] = {"E:\Local Disk (C)", "E:\Local Disk (D)", "E:\Local Disk (E)", "E:\Local Disk (F)", "E:\Local DVD RW Drive (G)", "E:\Removable Disk (H)", "E:\Removable Disk (I)", "E:\Removable Disk (J)", "E:\Removable Disk (K)", "E:\Removable Disk (L)"};
    @var $roots[] = {"C:\", "D:\", "E:\", "F:\", "G:\", "H:\", "I:\", "J:\", "K:\", "L:\"};
    @var $i;                         
    for ($i = 0; $i < 10; $i++)
        @var $str = $links[$i];
        //if folder's name is Local Disk (C)...etc.., set $folder to corresponding root (C:\ for Local Disk (C), D:\ for Local Disk (D)..etc)
        if (StrIsEqual($folder, $str))
            $folder = $roots[$i];
    //Open path $folder
    MC.Explorer.Goto SOURCE={$folder}
    MC.RunCmd ID=ExplorerPanel.41060;
    //Calculate Folders' Sizes
    MC.RunCmd ID=ExplorerPanel.51010

    1) Some icons aren't properly displayed except after refresh or going back to the containing folder.
       Using the mouse, this problem doesn't exist. I thought it was because of the 'Refresh' so I removed it and tried.
       The result was the same so it isn't the culprit.
    2) If the same paths are displayed on the left and right panels, if you'll go down then go up (or go up then go down)
        the target panel will be refreshed but the sizes being displayed in the source panel won't be displayed (most of the
        time, and I believe this is because of the Refresh command. It affects not only the source panel but also the target).
        They'll only be displayed after you go up or go down again..I'm using refresh because if I won't, previous sizes of the
        folders will be displayed until the current calculate folders size process completes. I want to see the size column being
        populated in action and while calculation is in progress I prefer to see blank on the size column rather than the previously
        calculated size.
    3) Just a clarification, copy, move and delete functions aren't background processes right?I tried copying and navigating but the
       copying process didn't stop so I assume that they aren't background processes. If so, then I'll need to remove the 'stop background
       processes part' since I only intended to stop the background process made by visiting the previous folder so as to avoid performance
    4) 'Remember selected files/folders when changing path' doesn't work except for root directories. Upon entering a directory I've previously
        visited, the focus goes to the top. It doesn't goes back to the focused file/folder before.         

Support and Feedback / slow rename on executable files
« on: March 26, 2013, 07:25:03 »
I noticed that when renaming a .exe file, after pressing 'Enter' key the rename doesn't happen immediately(it freezes for a moment). And it seems that the delay is longer if there are many executable files in the folder..other file types seem to be renamed immediately..

Support and Feedback / Ctrl + left click
« on: March 26, 2013, 07:20:06 »
I'm kind of new to Commander Look n feel..In WE Style if you have selected multiple items and want to deselect one or some of them, you can use Ctrl + Left Click..This doesn't seem to work with Commander Style...Is there a way to make it work?If there isn't, is there a workaround?

Support and Feedback / history and session information
« on: March 26, 2013, 07:17:06 »
Are history and session informations automatically deleted on MC exit?

Support and Feedback / hotkeys not working
« on: March 26, 2013, 07:15:27 »
I tried assigning the following hotkeys alt+;, alt+', alt+., alt+/ but after MC restart they didn't work anymore...I'm using Commander Style but I think this also persist even if you're using WE Style..other thing is maybe this only happens if you assign them to commands that have default hotkeys..I assigned alt+. for 'show properties' command which doesn't have default hotkey and it worked even after restart of MC..when I assigned it to other command that has default key there it failed..not sure though if this really is the case..

Support and Feedback / set focus to a folder

is there a way to set focus to a folder using multiscript or custom commands?

Feature Requests and Suggestions / change attributes and/or time

add ability to change 'last modified', 'last accessed' and 'date created'....

Support and Feedback / Select folders only
« on: March 23, 2013, 10:57:55 »
How can i select just the folders using custom command?I know about MC.Explorer.Select and MC.Explorer.Selection.Select. The problem is the filter..i tried "/*" but it doesn't work.

Feature Requests and Suggestions / Search in Language Editor
« on: March 23, 2013, 07:57:22 »
This will be quite a help for us who use this extension...

Feature Requests and Suggestions / File Shredder
« on: March 23, 2013, 07:50:46 »
There quite a lot of tools that are capable of doing this but I think it's more comfortable if you won't need other than what you've been using for ordinary deletes. An additional option in the delete dialog for shredding/wiping files would be great. Hope this would be considered.

Feature Requests and Suggestions / keyboard customization
« on: March 23, 2013, 07:45:20 »
It's quite a hassle for me (and maybe for some users also) to go back again and again to the two drop downs(Module and Category) in the keyboard customization dialog. So I'm requesting an option to display all the commands and their shortcut keys in just one list so there'll be no need to use the drop downs.Commands can be grouped into their respective Modules and Categories but they're all in one list. It would also be better if each group is collapsable. And much better if there is a filter/search box so that if you know the name of the command you can just type some of its words and you'll immediately find what you're looking for.
Again I'm requesting for just an option. That is, there's something there that you can click (or something like that) and all the commands will be displayed in one list. You can go back to the original setting if you want.

Support and Feedback / copy file names without extensions
« on: February 21, 2013, 02:43:05 »
i've used the copy file/folder names feature of MC recently and wow! it really comes handy saved me quite a time. Is there a way to copy file names without the extensions..this isn't really a problem for me since i have a good text editor and i can just delete them easily, but if there's a way to exclude the extensions during copy then it would be better..

Support and Feedback / enter key not working on favorites
« on: February 10, 2013, 05:55:32 »
try doing the favorites window, use the mouse to select one of the items in the favorites(maybe in the quickpaths also, i haven't tried)..then press enter key to open the selected item in the active my case it didn't work, nothing happened..i was only open it by using the mouse..this happens if you used the mouse on the favorites window even once..up and down keys work, but the enter key doesn't..

Support and Feedback / color configuration precedence
« on: February 10, 2013, 05:43:16 »
i set a specific color for .ini files, and another color for system and hidden problem is my desktop.ini files are colored according to the color i had set for .ini files and i want them to be colored according to the one i set for system and hidden can i make the color configuration for system files have a higher precedence/priority over others?

Support and Feedback / why 'overwrite'
« on: February 10, 2013, 03:20:59 »
when moving folders that contains read only or system files(e.g. thumbs.db, desktop.ini) the pop up window offers an option to 'overwrite'..the way i understand it is it says 'continue'(continue move operation)..or am I misunderstanding something?other options are 'skip', 'skip all', i thought 'overwrite' means 'continue'..though i'm not sure

i think it will be useful for some if there's a button in the favorites window that the user can click to add the current folder/directory in the active panel to favorites or quickpaths..if i remember it right free commander does it quite like that, though i'm not sure now since i've made MC my main file manager and stop using FC..

btw..this is off the topic but i'll mention it here since this is just a small issue..i observed that size values lower than 2000 aren't being converted from KB to MB (or from MB to GB and from B to KB)..i think it would be nice if 1024 KB will be displayed 1 MB and values higher than it will be converted to their corresponding values in MB..again, this is a small issue. I'm glad that MC now does display decimal points and convert thousand MB to GB coupled with nice options to do so..

this is useful if you've realized that there are files in the queue that you don't want to be copied or moved, of course 'skip' will work but if the items want to remove from the queue are on the end part, and there many items before them, then you'll have to wait for some time..and if there are many of them then you'll have to do some quite a few clicks on the 'skip' button..

Support and Feedback / delete progress dialog
« on: November 30, 2012, 11:29:25 »
both the copy and move operations don't use the windows progress dialog..why is it that delete uses what windows has?I think an MC's own would be preferable..kind of sick with windows' defaults(of course, some may prefer them)

Feature Requests and Suggestions / another drives list
« on: November 27, 2012, 09:19:59 »
i think there's no way to get into 'Computer' so i'll be asking this feature i found while testing another file manager..the way it works is if you have reached the root of a drive, for example C:\ or D:\, if you'll go up(by pressing 'backspace' or any other way to go to the parent folder) there will be a list of the drives from the upper left corner of the panel..i know there's already a drop down list that can be displayed if one chooses to but not everyone wants to have something between the tab and the address bar..there are some minimalists who just wants a single line toolbar, tabs and address bar..and besides the list i'm saying is not a drop down, but literally a list that pops in the corner only when you've reached the root and still pressed 'backspace' is really like an alternative of 'Computer'..
Btw, the FM i'm saying is Just Manager..still in Alpha stage

Feature Requests and Suggestions / more than one hotkey
« on: November 27, 2012, 08:29:05 »
i see only 'assign', 'remove' and 'resolve conflict' buttons in keyboard customization when configuring keys so i think there's no way to add another hotkey to an existing one..

Support and Feedback / resize filter rectangle
« on: November 27, 2012, 07:51:16 »
can it be resized?

Feature Requests and Suggestions / not <DIR>
« on: November 27, 2012, 07:08:04 »
An interesting feature in MC that i don't think other file managers don't have is the ability to modify the words, phrases, and sentences that are being displayed in the program through the language editor..just a minor request, please allow the use of  separate phrases for a directory(default <DIR>) and the '...' that points to the parent(default <DIR> also). I personally want the phrase for the '...' to be <UP> or maybe something like that.
I know I can modify <DIR> and have tried it(even modified <JUNCTION> and <SYMLNKD>). The problem is it seems that there is no separate phrase for '...'.
-btw..changing the words, phrases and sentences in Lang Editor is safe right?just want to be sure..don't want to break things here.
