Listary Pro turned up on Bits du Jour today - I had never heard of it before, but it does the recent file/folder tricks very nicely and works with two applications which have proved difficult for similar products (CorelDraw and Firefox) so I have gone for it and bought 3 licences.  The freeware licence (for non-commercial users) would be a great asset to most people.

And again today, 2012-05-09.

Channing added some teasing comments about the forthcoming - it's not here yet  Wink Listary 4:

Quote
Channing Dai
Answer to one frequently asked question about find-as-you-type search (http://www.listary.com/find-as-you-type):

The find-as-you-type search feature currently supports file open/save dialogs, Windows Explorer and xplorer2. It will support almost all file managers in Listary 4 (powered by Everything search http://www.voidtools.com/).

Listary 4 is almost finished and you can upgrade to it (and all future versions) for free if you purchase now.

Channing Dai @Tore Hoyem
Thank you very much for your testimonial. Here are some of the major changes of Listary 4:
- Ultra fast full disk and subfolder search (using Everything as backend).
- Support for more file open/save dialog and application types
- Specifying behavior of Listary (like toolbar position and how to handle mouse/keyboard events) per application
- Fully customizable toolbar
- Fully customizable double click popup menu
- Setting your own icon for favorite and command items
- Improved performance and stability
- Smaller installer size
- And much, much more...

I'm using Version 3.51.819, last but one.  The Applications tab has these:

Application Settings: (only affect selected application in the list above)
  [ ]   Enable Listary for this application
  [X]   Track recent files and folders

But, even set like that, I don't think you can switch off FAYT without switching off the other features.  I don't actually use Favorites inside Listary, but I use Total Commander as my file manager.  Listary integrates well with TC (and several other file managers), understanding my TC favourites list.  I tried my editor Notetab Pro with the Listary settings above, and asked Notetab to open a file with the standard WIndows File Open dialog.  Alt-tabbing between TC and Notetab didn't switch the File Open dialog to the folder TC was pointing to.  You might contact the author to be sure, though.

@rjbull: thanks for the reply.. i also use totalcmd and so will look into the integration feature. i guess quick-switch function is a bit tricky as plenty of apps can't get it right.

Sorry that disabling FAYT is not supported in the current version. In Listary 4 you can configure the toolbar to not show up automatically when you type and trigger it via hot key manually.

You're right. Quick Switch (and other features) won't work if you uncheck "Enable Listary for this application".

I have a license too, and although I assumed that the upgrade policy was the same as the "if you purchase now" deal, darned if I can find anything about it on their web site...  anyone know what the policy was moving from version 2 to 3  (I wasn't around back then)?  Given the "and all future version" wording in this deal, I'd be pretty disappointed if current licensees get charged...

I bought my license via an earlier Bits deal on 2010-03-21.  I can't remember the exact version number at the time, though I think it was 2.x.  I haven't had to pay for any upgrades, yet anyway.  I would read the wording to mean, no upgrade fees ever, but we all know what's been happening to that sort of license.

The deal has been extended to today, 2012-05-10.  The free vs. pro comparison chart at  http://www.listary.com/pro  says license is "lifetime," and even if there's an upgrade fee at some point it's usual for it to be reduced for existing users, so you might want to spring for it in hope.  It's not very expensive anyway.

I also have registered Listary Pro some time ago, and I know I am underutilizing some of its features. I was browsing the Listary web site the other day and found two features I had not realized were there.

  • "Find As You Type" also finds your favorite folders in addition to items in the current folder, I had never noticed this. I was trying to do this, but doing it wrong. I was trying to do it from the actual list of favorite folders.
  • You can use regular expressions in "Find As You Type" (enter the colon (:) before typing).

Sorry to make you confused. The upgrade policy is not changed. You'll always get lifetime upgrade for free.

That's good news!  In the meantime I keep suggesting people try it out, only took me about an hour before I went for the Pro license.  thumbs up

@Channing: my totalcmd favorites menu has some networked paths, which when called within Listary takes a long time to display. so i was wondering if anything can be done about this?
