Support and Feedback / Re: Panel Tab Width
« on: November 16, 2023, 12:16:27 »
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.

Did you make sure that MC was not running before you edited MultiButtons.xml?

Built in backup do not just take everything in the folder.. Just the file that belong to MC. and some other things..

But I think I can add so the internal method for backup/restore can be called from script with something like

Code: [Select]
BackupConfiguration( $filename );

RestoreConfiguration( $filename );

Not  the OP, but that would be very useful Mathias

OK.  Thanks Mathias.

When will build 2958 be available to download, please?

How long is the path?  Is it in double quotes?

The following link may help.  The solution is for the "Q-Dir" file manager, but the principle should be the same.

Disclaimer:  I have not tried this.

...up files, it will now save a 100/0 panel split. will not save a 100/0 panel split.

Hmm...  works for me in MC 12.8 (build 2929) and 13.0 (build 2948).

Do you have file extensions hidden, by any chance?

Unable to reproduce here with build 2946.

Tried with just folders, just files and a mix of the two.

Can you define "hover function"?

Hi Mathias. - thanks for the new beta.

But is the latest not 2943 (instead of 2944 , as stated above?)

Could it be your antivirus removing the files?

Is there anything in MC, antivirus or Windows Event logs?

Do you any so-called disk cleaners(CCleaner, Bleachbit, or the like)?

Yup agreed.  The "links" are anchor elements <a> but have no "href=".

FWIW, I have the same thing happen about once a week.

Never found the problem.  All tabs are opened on physically attached drives (no networked/remote/NAS/USB drives at all).


Works for me in MC 11.6 and 12.8.  To clarify, did this start only after your changes of hardware/transport protocols?

Some ideas/WAGs:
Do you actually have access rights to the drive roots?
Do you have any locked tabs?
Are the new drives mounted as shares?

You need to Ctrl+Click every item you want to multi-select (including the first).

I can confirm the same failures in MC 11.6(build 2845).

Hi Ulf.

Do you have a decent text editor that supports macros (Notepad++, UltraEdit, etc)?

As a programmer, I believe it would be quicker and less effort to use one of those as the tool for the job.

I will check if it is possible to keep date/time when it rebuild the zip

Date/time would be useful, adding the a attribute would give a quicker visual cue what has changed ;)

Also the filename is not important., You can rename the script file if you want. the Guid used is the one set inside the .udc file then you can easier identify what script is what.

Sure, but I don't want to navigate from an open zip file back to MC, open UDCs and check every script to locate the Guid then go back to the zip and identify the changed script!

Hi Mathias.

I have found a problem with  I have 50 scripts in the zip (each identified only by its GUID).

If I modify a script with MC's editor and save the changes, the zip is updated.  So far so good.  But...

When the zip is rebuilt with my changes all files in the archive are given the same date/time stamp and all file attributes are removed.

So I have no way to identify which file in the archive was changed; there is no visible  connection between the GUId and the script name.

How about:

Code: [Select]
MC.Explorer.NewBrowser PATH="C:\\MyData\\Projects\\DesktopProjects" SIDE=SOURCE;

sincere apologies - I did not study the images carefully enough  :o

In my (lame) defence, I always hide toolbars and icon panels in my system tools, so I never look for them.
