Re: Portable install?

Jan, thanks for your reply and I hope 3.1 installation will include portable option The thread you all link couple of times in this (and similar) thread is hard attempt, but far from declaring it portable Despite complicated workaround, writing to registry is not something many people can afford whe...

Re: Portable install?

Sorry to revive old thread, but I agree with OP that there is no reasonable way to use AS on portable device, while other players in same arena offer this possibility. Personally for me it's not that hard to use TC instead, but as I'm Automation plugin addict I would have to convert my scripts and f...

Find duplicates and select duplicates

Find duplicates is great feature to Find dialog, although I think it's a little buried in the menu and not that easily discoverable. If I don't miss something obvious I would like to suggest a little enhancement to this action. For example take a look at this result: http://i.imgur.com/9jwjIns.png I...

Simple listbox control for Salamander.Forms

I guess for simplicity sake, Salamander.Forms in Automation plugin, lacks some common controls like: radio buttons combobox listbox All these controls, on simple level, can be replaced by listbox control with ability to select only one item. It will allow mimicking each of those. For example: Salama...

Re: Date & Time Variables for User Menu

That perhaps would be handy for your current and particular problem. If AS provides too many variables it would just clutter current easy access But, AS provides Automation plugin, which can be accessed with various scripting languages. I find that as the right place for handling any exotic feature,...

Re: Automation issues with Python COM

Manison, Python works fine for automation scripts, but problem is with just some Salamander exposed function. As reported I noticed issue with `Salamander.ViewFile` and `Salamander.WaitWindow`. ActiveState Python is bundled with pywin32, so this Python distribution should work out of the box with Sa...

Automation issues with Python COM

Consider this VBS automation script: Salamander.ViewFile "c:\temp\log.txt" and this Python automation script: Salamander.ViewFile(r"c:\temp\log.txt") I would expect they return same result, but Python one crashes Salamander: Information About Exception: Exception: access violation: read on 0x0000...

How to match tab while searching?

I was searching for files containing regex pattern where Tab was one of the queries, and didn't get result although I knew there is at least one. It turns out that AS in some places doesn't support common "\t", "\d", "\w", "\s" ... regex placeholders, but it treats them as literal character: "t", "d...

Re: Remove history item

I won't debate over this particular implementation, as I mentioned Firefox because it's popular software. Implementation detail can be sensitive to developers. Here is for example another approach (foobar2000): http://i.imgur.com/rrkRBN0.png context menu with remove history item is triggered by righ...

Remove history item

For example, in Firefox when I hover over item from list dropdown and press Delete key, that item is removed from history.

I want to suggest this feature for "Command line" input box history and "List of working directories" history. Maybe also for other places for which AS is saving history

Compare directories and ignore line endings

I couldn't find such option and thought to request it. When comparing directories, files with same contents but different line endings are marked as different. In some scenarios this is not desired (i.e. version control), and it is to be expected that user would want an option to ignore line endings...

Re: Confirmation dialog on doube-click multiple selected fil

Yes it was. So this looks like a bug or misfortune design of find dialog, as I can't make to launch bunch of selected files just by double clicking elsewhere, including Explorer and Explorer's search mode PS. IIRC that is how Nautilus file manager behaves on Linux - allows launching multiple selecte...
