Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: collect files in a virtual folder
« on: December 12, 2006, 09:20 AM »

Directory Opus Supports Virtual folders under the name "File Collections".  You can create as many as you like.  It automatically creates one called "Find Results" as the result of any search operation.  That way you have all the matching files available to work on directly.

The are some limits on what can be done with the files.  The biggest drawback I've found (and listed as a requested feature from many) to the Dopus file collections is that it won't limit searches to the files in a collection.  It would be great to be able to select a number of folders from a crowded network drive and add to a collection.  Then just search those.

Other file operations are pretty standard.  The only added operation is "Remove from Collection".  It doesn't touch the file but pulls out of the view.  And there are entries under "Send To" for the File Collections.

Post New Requests Here / IDEA: Separate "Active" Window for a script?
« on: December 01, 2006, 05:31 PM »

Ok, this might be crazy, so here's the short version.

How to setup a script to run in a window - primarily IE.  But, while it's running you can continue to use the computer, without interferring with what's happening in the scripting program.

Maybe the virtual desktop is a good example, where you could put the "automatic" program on the background desktop.

Is this at all feasible, other than going to a virtual machine setup?

I see that feature, but what I need it to do is to basically CD to each of the directories that are dropped, not use the directory as a parameter.

I even tried:

cd %P;C:\Scripts\Bb\fixes_drapdroprobot.bat   (which then just simply launches fixes.vbs

(and then cd %A - which seemed better, but didn't work either).  The script is programmed to run only on the directory it's in, so it didn't like the cd method.

Does that make sense?  I'm still missing something?

Thanks again,
