Re: Crash on viewing a file

I think this fix should be more prominent. All users (including new ones, now that Salamander is free) are downloading and using a version that is known to be broken!

Compare Files vertically, dual monitor

I have two equal monitors placed 'landscape' next to each other, on which I use Compare Files regularly. I would like it to have an option to easily position the File Comparator window such that each file is on its own monitor, maximizing screen space. :idea: Currently this takes some effort because...

User menu and Percent signs

Executing a user menu command (that uses Execute through shell ) on some files did not work. Nothing happened... :( It turns out this is caused by a filename containing a percent character ( % ). Salamander just replaces $(FullName) by the filename and puts that in the batch file it executes. But CM...

Re: Compare is not detecting upper and lower case.

I'm aware that NTFS is case sensitive and there is an API to use that feature. But Windows is case insensitive in nature: the Win32 API by default and the shell, both CMD and Explorer. So I can understand that Salamander does what Windows users expect: compare filenames without regard to case. Even ...

Re: Compare is not detecting upper and lower case.

I'm sorry but tukanos is incorrect. When comparing file contents, one can choose to include case. Filename comparisons are case INsensitive due to the nature of Windows.

A workaround could be saving the filenames into files (say via Ctrl+Shift+F6) and comparing those.

Re: Shift+click to expand Text Viewer selection

We have supported Shift+click to extend selection in internal viewer in text mode. We have also supported Shift+arrows, End, Home, Ctrl+Home, and Ctrl+End to extend selection. Thanks, I'm looking forward to it. Hint: You can also scroll the view using keyboard while dragging a block with left mouse...

Re: Shift+click to expand Text Viewer selection

Show caret would indeed help before Shift+Ctrl+End etc. But Shift+click would be nice regardless.

No retry copying via ADB

I tried using the Android ADB Plugin via the wonderful TCproxy Plugin. I can copy files from and to my smartwatch where Explorer does not see the device. So that's great! I noticed one minor thing. While copying files to my local drive, I got this error: 2016-02-25_12-07-38.png The error is expected...

Re: Required file not found in the archive.

The TAR Plugin always reports the size as 0 bytes. I'm afraid this is due to the nature of the gzip format where finding out the size almost requires decompression...

And sure the issue is that the content is zero bytes. But there is no reason to trip over that.

Hide in Find scrolls down

The selected line in Find is scrolled all down sometimes. I try: - search for (find) a very long list of files and folders - scroll halfway down - click (select) a file in the middle of the screen - press Ctrl+H to hide it The selected line (the next file) is now scrolled down so it is the very last...

Find, sort and position

The block selection start position in Find is strange after sorting. I try: - search for (find) a long list of files and folders - go to position 20 or so - sort (say by size) so the selected line moves - press Shift+Down to add the next line to the selection The selection now starts at the former s...

Required file not found in the archive.

Try to open the attached archive:
nothing.gz
A gzip file containing an empty stream
(20 Bytes) Downloaded 145 times
The TAR Plugin gives the error "Required file not found in the archive."
That is because the (non-named) gzip file (stream) happens to be empty. Why wouldn't that be allowed? I think the archive is perfectly valid.
Other tools like gunzip do not complain.

Re: End of support for Windows 2000, XP, Vista

When Windows XP SP3 and Windows Server 2003 (or before) are no longer officially supported, please do not check the OS version actively and refuse. I'm sure almost all functionality will work just fine.
