Markdown support

I am very glad to finally have a markdown viewer accessible from Salamander. Up till now, I could not even find an external viewer to my liking. I discovered a flaw, however, which you might be able to resolve: I edited the markdown file, while it was open in the viewer. I then tried to update the v...

Open Source Initiative

Hi, I very welcome the new version, although I personally do not benefit from HiDPI enhancements (yet). On the other hand I am sad that the features I do care about most (UAC, Unicode, long file paths) have become unlikely to ever happen. I have understanding for your decision to not opensource the ...

Re: Command line problems

Hi Carlos, your program most likely is not on the PATH. Unlike Windows Run feature, Salamander's command line always runs anything through the shell. The shell is defined by the contents of the COMSPEC environment variable, usually cmd.exe Windows finds some programs by searching the entries in the ...

Re: No icon for office files

It might be some issue with 32/64 bit. What versions of Windows, Office, AS are you using (in regard to version, build, and bitness). Also, because office files are zip archives in disguise, an overly eager archiver might cause a mess. Can you check also with old style office files (i.e. .doc rather...

Re: JSON Viewer Plugin

Looks like the viewer does not work if the root element is not an object. My .json files have a list at it's root and only show the "JSON" tree root in the viewer. Am I missing something? The files have been downloaded from the codeplex archive, e.g. https://archive.codeplex.com/?p=visuallogparser ....

Re: Separator between right-click menu Delete/Rename items

Hi,
The context menu you get is composed by windows, not Salamander (you get the same in Windows Explorer)

Why don't you use F2?

Other options are:
- click on the already selected file name
- Main menu (also using acceleration keys)
- the symbol on any suitable toolbar (e.g. the middle toolbar)

Re: Application crash and corrupted configuration

Just a warning: if you do this, you risk a buggy, instable Salamander, because configuraion data indeed may be incomplete and inconsistent. Avoid it if possible. Also you might loose things like plugins,user menu entries, ftp sites, viewers and editors ... In a case of corruption, I tend to export t...

Re: Prevent jump to extracted file when using WinRAR

I don't think there is a way using the standard archiver methods and working within one panel. The easiest way to achieve what you want is to navigate to the same folder in the second panel (Tab, Ctrl+., Tab) and then extract to the second panel (either chosen in the setup, or by pressing Ctrl+Down ...

Re: Destroyed configuration in Win 10

Thank you for your reply. I am not sure, what I should do with the information provided in the link. That information is targeted at Windows XP. Microsoft redesigned shutdown behaviour in Windows Vista. So, how much of it still applies? Furthermore, as I said, I did not have any trouble yet when ini...

Destroyed configuration in Win 10

I am running AS 2.54 in Windows 10. I do not normally have any problems with incompletely saved configurations when shutting down/restarting Windows, even when I have many instances of Salamander running. However, if windows initiates the restart on it's own, as a result of system updates, it garble...

Re: Cannot login via SFTP/SCP anymore (OpenSSH 7.4p1)

I do not use winscp. However, in similar circumstances (with IMAPSize) I had some success by just replacing the OpenSSL libraries with more recent ones.

Re: slow display of thumbnails

I don't know if this works / still works for up to date versions of AS / there is an up to date version of this plugin available, but it appears to be what you are looking for: Explorer Thumbnails Plugin Windows explorer caches it's thumbnails in a hidden file Thumbs.db in each folder where it finds...

Re: URL Formation via "Copy path + name as text"

Hi, The URL returned by AS is valid. You're probably confused about the rather seldomly used username portion (sysnative@). Wikipedia A generic URI is of the form: scheme:[//[user[:password]@]host[:port]][/path][?query][#fragment] What's the problem about replacing 'ftp://sysnativ@ftp.sysnative.com/...

What kind of integration are you looking for, that you cannot easily achieve using user menu or automation plugin or is handled by the scp plugin already?

Re: Mapped drives not visible

Does Salamander run as the same user and with the same integrity (UAC elevation level) as Windows Explorer?

Have you been searching this forum for mapped drive?
The following thread seem particularly promissing:
