More Hot Paths

I would be great, if I could define more than 10 hot paths.

Doesn't matter if I there are assigned Hot Keys, but the path should be shown in drop down 'Change Drive' Menu.

Thanks

Have you checked http://www.altap.cz/salam_en/newver.html ???
- Structured and unlimited Hot Paths.

Of course, that the reason why I ask for this features :twisted:
But anyway, thanks for the hint.

Folks,

But unlimited hot paths is not available yet, only in the plan for "Next Altap Salamander versions", right?

Does anybody have a workaround? I have about 20 directories that I go to frequently and with Salamander 2.5 I'm limited to keeping only my top ten in the hot path.

Thanks,
Rich

You can allways use a customized user menu.

SelfMan,

I spent 15 minutes trying to figure out how to make a customized user menu that would allow to move to a specified directory, but couldn't figure it out. I tried searching the discussion for an example, but couldn't find one.

Could you please explain a bit more how to do this or post an example?

Thanks,
Rich

I am using this script (e.g. d:\tools\salhotmenu.vbs):

Code: Select all

Set objArgs = WScript.Arguments
Set sh = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
bFound = sh.AppActivate("Salamander 2.5")
if bfound then
	sh.SendKeys "+{F7}"
	sh.SendKeys objArgs(0) & "{ENTER}"
end if
and create user menu entries like this:

Command: d:\tools\salhotmenu.vbs
Arguments: "\\Server1\Share11"
Initial directory: $(SalDir)

Execute through shell: unchecked
Show item in User Menu Bar: checked

The script works perfectly -- great workaround to allow unlimited hot paths!

Thanks TH.!

The script does work, after a minor modification
32bit Salamander

Code: Select all

Set objArgs = WScript.Arguments
Set sh = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
bFound = sh.AppActivate("Altap Salamander 4.0 (x86)")
if bfound then
	sh.SendKeys "+{F7}"
	sh.SendKeys objArgs(0) & "{ENTER}"
end if
64bit Salamander

Code: Select all

Set objArgs = WScript.Arguments
Set sh = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
bFound = sh.AppActivate("Altap Salamander 4.0 (x64)")
if bfound then
	sh.SendKeys "+{F7}"
	sh.SendKeys objArgs(0) & "{ENTER}"
end if
the AppActivate must contain the proper application title.
