Re: Thanks

Thank you for the kind words! Salamander is 99% perfect for our day-to-day tasks. It is, and has been, for many years. One thing though worries me as a long-time user: We took over Altap company, a well-known Salamander software supplier. By this growth, we acquire an experienced development team f...

Re: When will it be possible to view (F3) Office 2010 files?

The "new" office 2010 is a long time on the market and I can't Quickview in these files with F3? Is any support for these files planned? Alternatively, you could use the free and very capable viewers from SoftMaker: http://www.officeviewers.com/ They can be integrated into Salamander e.g. via the U...

Re: PictView does not show animated GIFs

I'm unable to reproduce this problem with PB87 x64 on Windows 7 x64. Could you please specify the GIF image? Yuriy can reproduce the problem, so it probably only occurs in the x86/32-bit version of Salamander 3, which is what we are both using. He has Windows 7 x64, I own Win 7 x86. The particular ...

PictView does not show animated GIFs

In my installation of Salamander 3.0 beta 1, the PictView plugin (2.11 beta 1) does not seem to render animated GIFs any more. When an animated GIF is selected for viewing, PictView's screen remains empty, like no file selection had been made. The File --> Properties dialog still shows information a...

Re: Problems with RAR 4.*

I have to confirm this problem. It seems to be happening with existing archives that Salamander works on using the rar.exe console executable of version 4, or newer. According to rar.exe's new logging command, it appears that e.g. a file named HighwayMaintenance.htm is actually added as "\HighwayMai...

Re: bug: button doesn't open control panel

This shortcut will open the desired path inside the Salamander ? Yes, it is specifically limited to work only when Salamander is running and has the focus. Did I misunderstand, and you wanted certain folders opened outside of Salamander? That can be done as well, with the Windows Explorer, or in ot...

Re: bug: button doesn't open control panel

OFFTOP is there an option to save shortcuts to directories ? sort of bookmarks? If you don't mind a tiny bit of programming, Autohotkey ( http://www.autohotkey.com/ ) can do this, and many other tasks as well. An extra shortcut to the desktop, only active when Salamander is running in the foregroun...

Re: Left and right key additionally for navigation

But additionally it is possible to do this by pressing the left and right keys. Right to enter a directory and left to leave it. In my experience, this makes navigation even faster (you only need one hand at one place). And those keys aren't being used by default in navigation for something else. S...

Re: Unicode viewer

I second that suggestion. The Ghisler Lister is highly useful, e.g. you can select what font to use for display, so selecting a Unicode font will show all supported characters. It can easily be integrated into Salamander, either as a default, or via the user menu. It can also serve as an alternative...

Congratulations, it works:
$[USERPROFILE]\Desktop
can now be used as an entry for Hot Paths, and opens the current user's Desktop-Folder.

Re: Use WinRAR instead of console application RAR

Is there any way to NOT use salspawn.exe to call an external packer? I put "winrar.exe" (instead of console app "rar.exe") in as an external packer and it works nicely but Salamander also tries to spawn the packer in a console DOS window. Honestly, I have been using Rar.exe for ages with Salamander...
