thank you for the report warbird -- actually it's a new bug, caused by a change i made to the try to tweak the "ontop" settings of the forms.

i will upload a new fix today or tomorrow.

i've uploaded a new version with skinning disabled in the options -- let's see if this fixes the problem.  redownload at same url and just install over previous version (but make sure it's exited from the tray when you install new version).

Same here ! i noticed it since the last release...

an other thing, i find quite disturbing the fact that FARR searches an alias by name AND autocompletes its name, let me explain :

let's say i have this alias :
Name : launch in different browser
regex : ^open (.*)
action :
Firefox $$c | C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe "$$c"
Opera $$c | ...
....

to search for it, i can type launch, but then if i use tab to autocomplete it, i have "launch in a different browser" in the edit box which is unusable, since the regex asks for open...
of course, one could choose the word(s) as the regex OR better yet change the regex to ^launch in different browser (.*)

@mouser
i think that it could be disturbing for other people
maybe you could add a field in the alias edit form, so that we could manually specified what we want ??

Just my two cents Wink keep up the great work  Thmbsup

Cheers, nitrix

FARR can't find items in when it is in a folder that contain a folder of the same name. If I am in c:\devel and there is a c:\devel\devel\, I won't be able to see and select anything.

I got this issue again. I checked the different beta version that I installed and the issue begin between the 2.0.56 and the 2.0.59. The 2.0.56 don't have the issue, the 2.0.59 have the issue.

I have got another problem, FARR seem to have stopped search results in the history. It began between the version 2.0.60 and 2.0.68.

tongue sorry for reposting this but I got no answers about these bugs and they seem pretty severe in my mind. I can repro them on two computers. Am I the only one ?

Another bug :
In the checklist box if you check with the space bar and you close then reopen the setting windows the last item check with the spacebar is not checked.

Mouser,
I'm not clear on this option to 'force FARR window on top...'. Does this mean FARR will show on top and stay on top even if it looses focus? I have it enabled, FARR comes up, but when it looses focus, it simply stays open but its windows moves back vs. just hiding.
Is FARR supposed to completely hide when it looses focus similar to 'close window after lunch'. If not, I think it would be nice to have FARR hide (or close window) when it looses focus too.

Steps to repro that bug :
FARR can't find items in when it is in a folder that contain a folder of the same name. If I am in c:\devel and there is a c:\devel\devel\, I won't be able to see and select anything (but c:\devel\devel - sorry for my unclear explication ).

- Create a c:\test folder
- Create a c:\test\test folder
- Create a c:\test\test\document.txt file
- Type c:\test\ in FARR (don't forget the ending \ )

=> There should be 3 entry : current folder, test, and document.txt
=> I can only see and select the c:\test\test folder
=> Pressing enter will open c:\test\test folder

the current version 2.0.78 have the bug on my two computer.

Dear Mouser,

I really love to use FARR and all my desired improvements are already done before I even recognize that there is a demand. AWESOME!!

For that reasons there is just one little cosmetic wish for me to complete a great piece of software.
Could there be possibly an option to center FARR at the first start. Currently it is positioned anywhere on the screen, but there is no option to re-place it to ease handling.

Thx in advance for your support and your feedback.

powerandy it's a good idea. keep in mind that FARR should remember your last position and size for the farr window so that once you set it, you should never have to worry about this again.

cnewtonne,
the force on top stuff only takes effect on restarting farr, so make sure you exit and restart after you change that setting.

as far as making farr dissapear if you move focus away, it sounds cool but it might be problematic because sometimes you want to drag and drop files into farr.

did you know that you can type the hotkey again to close farr window (or tap escape twice).

Manu!

Sorry if i didn't reply to your bug reports before --
My memory is that i tried to reproduce them and couldn't reproduce the problem and was able to navigate to child directories with same name as the parent.

I will reproduce your example again and see what i find.

Request: can you try using the tab key to to auto-complete, or the alt+# key to go into the parent directory; it may be that hitting enter is opening the parent directory wheras the others will change to that directory in farr, which i think is what you want.

Or is the problem that you want farr to show the contents of the child directory c:\test\test even when you just type c:\test.  I have to think about this a little since it's not clear to me that farr really should be showing you the contents inside the child directory in this case (until you complete c:\test\test), BUT it is something i could add if people really think i should.  Anyone have any thoughts?

I guess my question is, is farr getting confused and behaving differently when the child dir is same name as parent, or is it the case that farr behaves just like any other directory but you want it to behave specially?

Mouser,

This is in reference to the bug I reported with FARR v1.13.02.  Here's the post:

    Odd bug after using Numpad key to launch shortcut
    http://www.donationcoder....um/index.php?topic=6980.0

Anywho, back in January, you sent me a message to try the new release of FARR to see if the bug was still there.  Although I check the forum every once in a while, I just now noticed the tiny "You have 1 message" link.  Sorry, I didn't know to look for it but now I do.

I just downloaded the lasted alpha release and gave it try/see.  Unfortunately, the problem persists.  With v2.x, the problem occurs when a shortcut or folder is selected.

Thank you for your consideration.  Please let me know if you need any additional information.

Yes, FARR behave differently when the child dir is the same name as the parent. If I rename the child dir to anything else FARR work as usual.

Thank you.

Here's another not app-breaking, but slightly annyoing for me and maybe a few others; I'm using japanese windows, so sometimes i search for files using japanese. Everything works perfectly, it searches and gets hits, and there is no problem in the results windows, but the japanese i typed in into the search field gets scrambled. No unicode?

I'm afraid that i don't have much experience with unicode and it's not supported in farr, as you feared. but are you saying that farr actually searches and displays results ok when you type japanese characters, and that it's only the search edit box that doesn't display properly?  If that's the case it may be relatively simple for me to replace the editbox with a unicode-capable control.  the results window would not be nearly so simple to fix so if results are not displayed properly there, i'm afraid we are out of luck.

I just want to say that I'm really impressed with the new version!  I can't imagine NOT using it now.  Just one question...what is the possibility of adding support for UNC paths?  It may be an impossibility, but it's something that would really be useful in my daily work.  I guess what I'm meaning is if I type "\\server", it would list any computers on my network that match that and so on with the shares, etc.  Make sense?

hi gregabear,
i wonder if this wouldn't make for a good plugin idea.  if so, post here: http://www.donationcoder....um/index.php?topic=8071.0

question: would the idea be to search deep within the shares like regular directories? or just basically list and let you filter and select from the share "root directories" (excuse me if i'm using the wrong terms or talking nonsense, i don't work with these things much).

Hi Mouser, i tried the Alias Action Keywords feature with no luck, is it broken ?

here is what i did :

the +notepad modifier does not do anything...  Sad


an other thing concerning the aliases, i created this one but the $cc does not work, i found that with a simpler regex ^yubnub (.*) it works... strange no ?



cheers, Nitrix

in the first case, dont put the + in the alias name, only when you invoke it.
ps you might want to use something different than notepad in case you ever want to find notepad smiley

in the second case, i'll look into it!
