1  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Easy way to mark file as done? on: August 22, 2014, 04:03:30 AM
In XYplorer it's called "Extra Tags". For "Done" you would create a special column named "Done" with checkboxes. See here:

http://www.xyplorer.com/r...lease_13.80.htm#ExtraTags

But, of course, those tags are not visible from other software.
2  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Most advanced tagging functionalities? on: August 07, 2014, 12:44:45 PM
What programs have the most advanced file tagging functionalities? To clarify: I am not talking about multimedia tagging, where the metadata fields are fixed. I am talking about free-form tagging of any files, with tag fields arbitrarily defined by the user, for managing large collections of heteronegeous files.

Functionalities such as logical operations with tags (set theory and such), wildcards in the tag queries (e.g. include all tags that match abc*), virtual folders based on tags, etc. would especially be very much appreciated.

Any ideas related to tagging programs, even if not currently implemented in a program, would be welcome in this thread.

Try XYplorer. It's a file manager with tagging as a central feature.

For detailed information and screenshots check out the links after "Tag Clouds" and "Tag-Based File Management" on this page: http://www.xyplorer.com/features.php

So the original creation time is not present in the NTFS Created date of the folders, but only in the folder names? And the problem is *sorting* them?

Filter and order folders by the date of original creation time

I would like to obtain a list of folders by the creation date in the original pc where they were created.
Additionally go to different levels in a tree. Even choosing the subfolders i wish more details . Custumizable.

Best Regards

Can you post an example of what output you desire?

Permanent Custom Sort Order (PCS) is on XYplorer's road map since long, and all the thinking has been done, I more or less just need to type in the code. Only I'm not sure about the importance of this feature compared to other ideas I have. I have the impression that only very few people would actually use PCS.
XYplorer's recent beta finally has it: Permanent Custom Sort Order!

Has there been a 64-bit version released yet? Their site seems to indicate there hasn't.

No 64-bit version, but 64-bit shell extensions are supported. 

Sort of.  You have to select from the initial right-click menu that you want the 64-bit menu, then viola!

So it's not exactly seamless, but it's a step in the right direction if 64-bit extension support is important to you (personally, I consider it a bug for the software that's installing the extension if it doesn't install both the 32-bit and 64-bit extensions on a 64-bit system).
FYI, you can also configure it to show the 64-bit menu immediately. So it actually supports both worlds of shell extensions -- a rare thing to find.

^Yes, very true. Don has gone back and forth on the lifetime offering. I hope he is familiar with its pitfalls.
As long as more people are born every day than buy a license I'm not worried. And last time I checked this was still the case. Wink

You know that commenting files is one of the main features of XYplorer? Just ask in the user forum. There is nothing in this area that can't be done with XY. Otherwise I will add it.
11  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: The right organization (WE views and a particular need) on: April 14, 2014, 10:00:45 AM
XYplorer can do that (Branch View) with its Freeware Edition: http://www.xyplorer.com/free.php

PS: I'm not sure how your files are named, but if you have a date right in the filename (aka date-coded filenames) you can extract that part of the filename (to sort or find files by it) using XYplorer's "scriptable columns".

See here:

Déjà vu. A "teppups" already dissed XY and praised DO in an XYplorer BDJ promotion this year, then a "teppups" showed up in the XYplorer forum promoting DO and dissing XY, now a "teppups" suddenly materializes here. What a miraculous coincidence. Well, it's Xmas.  smiley

I agree it's nasty. And it's certainly not my style. It's the first time I did this in 16 years. But, what you probably don't know, this little campaign is running at least since September 2013:

Remove the animal to make the link work: http://<kangaroo>www.gpsoft.com.au/dscripts/compupgrade.asp

You are a frustrated Directory Opus user who has been fed too much bloat for too much money for too many years? Well, switch to a better application, the one where the action is, the one where modern file management is defined, the one that professionals use: XYplorer.

Now is a good time to switch: For the rest of 2013, you can get the XYplorer Lifetime License Pro for 50% off if you are a Directory Opus user. You pay only US$ 39.97 instead of US$ 79.95!

How to get the competitive discount? Read on here: http://www.xyplorer.com/fromDOtoXY.php

cheers and happy holidays,
Don

Just FYI: XYplorer never had any arrangement with that site. I never heard about it. XY had a 24 hour giveaway with a German site (which, alas, turned out to be equally poorly done and just a thick heap of ads thumb down), but the site you mentioned obviously just wants to harvest some ad-cents while you click through it.

BTW, "Distribute" (aka Multi-Target-Copy) is on my list as well. It will be pretty awesome and integrate perfectly and seamlessly with the XYplorer architecture.

19  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: Pre-generate thumbnails for images in selected folders? on: February 22, 2013, 03:32:23 AM
You might have to change file manager - or use an image viewer.
XYPlorer is quick to load thumbs (their quality isn't great though).
Really? I pride myself to have the best thumbs in the business. Maybe you have the wrong settings.

Tick: Configuration | Preview | Image preview: | High quality image resampling
Untick: Configuration | Thumbnails | Super-fast thumbnails

Speed and quality is a trade off, of course.

20  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: What's your preferred File Manager on: January 13, 2013, 11:13:34 AM
Those of you who know me, will understand that the addition of a new scripting feature in XYplorer has moved this file manager up the list somewhat. From the beta change log:

Quote
    + Scripting got a new command.
      Name:   makecoffee
      Action: Makes a good cup of coffee.
      Syntax: makecoffee
      Example:
        ::makecoffee;
      Remarks:
        Call again for another cup.
Kiss

You might like to know that the recent BETA of XYplorer features a new scripting command that opens specific pages in XYplorer's CHM help. The command is called rtfm cheesy

Here's the link to the change log with some examples: http://www.xyplorer.com/x...wtopic.php?p=80895#p80895

You said:

When you have the display as you would like it, you just click, select and copy those lines of the display you want to communicate.

That's exactly what you can do with XYplorer, even the width of the columns, the order of columns, the selection of files, etc. everything can be set in XYplorer very easily because the Report exactly mirrors the current list. I tried, but I cannot see which part of filegrab could be missing here.
22  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: DONE: "Filegrab"-like functionality integrated into the file explorer. on: November 13, 2012, 02:55:18 AM
Hi,

No need for filegrab. XYplorer supports this as a one-click feature for more than 10 years. Simply open the Report tab on the Info Panel (F12) and press "To Popup" or "To Clipboard", and you get something like this (of course, showing the column headers is optional):

@DonL
I will not install MSE just to disable XY in it Wink

@Jibz
I also think this may be multi-threading issue.
Even my own applications were freezing single-threaded (BBCeditor has parsing engine runnig in separate thread and Comparer is getting thumbnails from explorer/plugins same way).

BTW TC was behaving in the same way for folders with a lot of icons/thumbnails. It stopped with one update, after Ghisler had made some functions to work in background.
It's not the icons. This is long solved. Don't forget: For the great majority of users XY is super-fast.

zip, rar support any closer? thanks
Last time I looked it was on the roadmap.
25  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: yet another file manager thread... on: September 13, 2012, 11:28:37 AM
Any things those users have in common?

Stuff like OS Version, MSE version (there's (obviously, perhaps smiley) been some engine changes, but I'm not sure MSE updated automatically from version-whatever to version-bignewchanges, even though it does auto-updates of signatures), and perhaps custom explorer shell extensions?

The only time I've seen MSE incur a noticeable speed hit is with some compressed or otherwise protected executables - when that happens, I get delays in the more-than-a-second range, even on my (pretty darn fast) i7-3770 - don't have a noticeable speed hit on normal executables, even those in the multi-megabyte range.
Any things those users have in common? The right question but hard to answer. I think I had around 5 such cases in the last years, not too many to run a dragnet investigation... smiley
