xplorer² LITE

Changelog

xplorer² LITE 4.2.0.1:

  • cloud storage improvements for Google drive file stream and Box cloud drive.

xplorer² LITE 4.1.0.1:

  • If history items # is set to the smallest allowable value of 2 (TOOLS > OPTIONS menu, General property page), then no history will be saved on exit. This includes addressbar paths and general history items like phrases searched for, but it does not affect bookmarks and other global lists.
  • If you have the "tab strip visible at all times" policy enabled from advanced options (DPF_SHOW1TAB), and the single leftover tab happens to be a locked tab, it is remembered for next restart.

xplorer² LITE 4.0.0.2:

  • drag-drop FROM deep (long pathname) folders into normal folders works (for left mouse dragging only).
  • fast desktop search works in removable USB drives, as long as you have them added in the search index (through control panel's indexing options).
  • programmable column STR() function works on numbers returned by FBYTES function, effectively extracting actual text from files (instead of hexadecimal data). This is meant for plain text files only.
  • token for mass rename command always translates to a real date, regardless of any "friendly dates" setting. The lowercase $d version inserts date without time.

xplorer² LITE 4.0.0.1:

  • Added programmable column function INT() that converts a string to a number. Useful for managing bytes returned from FBYTES function.
  • A few bugs fixed for WCX plugins. If you are using the 7-zip NSE plugin there's a bugfix for that too.

xplorer² LITE 4.0.0.0:

  • Here is a sample macro program, that opens the Copy To (robust transfer) dialog, populates the filter box with "*.PDF", and starts the file transfer.
  • New programmable stock column with a million+1 uses, similar to the desktop detective panel in DeskRule. You define an expression that combines file properties, boolean and arithmetic operators and a few functions, and the calculation result is the content of the column. It can then be used as any other file attribute e.g. for sorting, filtering even searching. Here are a few examples.

xplorer² LITE 3.5.0.2:

  • Global registry option nTagRectWidth controls the pixel width of the color tag rectangle. Make it thicker if you want more pronounced borders but if it is too thick it may conceal the filename letters.
  • Some fixes for windows 10 latest build 16299.
  • During large file copies and other lengthy operations xplorer² won't allow your system to go to sle.

xplorer² LITE 3.5.0.1:

- "hidden" command with id=33508 pops the color tag menu, for those that don't want to use the shell context menu to color tag items. You can assign a keyboard shortcut to it using CUSTOMIZE > KEYBOARD menu command, and find 33508 in the miscellaneous category.
- editor² v2.940 adds experimental support for "macro" commands. Use AUTOTEXT > MACRO menu command or press F9 key. CTRL+F9 repeats the last macro. For more information on the macro language syntax please refer to the deskrule help.

xplorer² LITE 3.4.0.4:

- "hidden" command with id=33508 pops the color tag menu, for those that don't want to use the shell context menu to color tag items. You can assign a keyboard shortcut to it using CUSTOMIZE > KEYBOARD menu command, and find 33508 in the miscellaneous category.

xplorer² LITE 3.4.0.4:

- Bugfix for the explorer replacement mode.

xplorer² LITE 3.4.0.3:

- Better long path support for windows 10 build build 15063 (redstone 2) and later.
- All lowercase tokens $n $p etc (used in command templates) when 8.3 paths are not available are automatically quoted, if they contain any spaces. Ditto for various export text commands that generate 8.3 names (Alt+Shift+C).
- Some of the custom controls like tabs and docking panels work better with accessibility for the disabled (and for autohotkey scripters too!).
- Global setting szGrepWhiteListTypes is a comma separated list of extensions that are white listed for text search (using filters). If you have problems searching in office_X (docx etc) file types, make sure you add the problematic extensions in this list.
- A few bugs fixed.

xplorer² LITE 3.4.0.0:

- Added T(emporary) in the list of file attributes to show temporary files
- Text preview and keyword searching works in phones and cameras too (not just thumbnails). This extracts a temporary file. If the phone file is larger than nMaxZipExtractSize (see TOOLS > OPTIONS menu, General property page, "Item in ZIP/FTP" setting) then nothing is extracted.
- GAOPT_NODRBAREMPTY policy works for the folder tree too, not just the drivebar. It hides any empty removable drives you have. Use TOOLS > ADVANCED OPTIONS to manage this setting (Global page, Don't check for empty drives). This option also hides empty CDR/DVD drives like windows explorer does it. If you want to see all the registered drives, browse "My Computer" (This PC) in a regular folder pane.
- When searching for text inside files, and when you tick "Search non-text files" or "Search All files" options, it is possible that you will waste time searching in huge video files where nothing will be found. That's why a local (layout) setting nBinSearchMaxSizeMB introduces a cutoff limit to avoid searching in huge binary files. The default is 50 MB. Note this doesn't affect files that expose text filters, only true binary files. Set it to 0 to turn off the safety feature and search all files. Alternatively, to bypass nBinSearchMaxSizeMB limit, force the encoding to RAW.
- [P] custom grouping information is saved as part of custom folder settings. Grouping is also possible on many non-stock date columns. Finally custom groups are remembered even if they are not saved under CUSTOMIZE > CUSTOM GROUPS list. All possible changeovers from/to special folders, customized folders and default settings are handled properly.
- When tight thumbnail spacing is enabled (GIOPT_PACKEDTHUMBS from advanced settings) no filenames are shown next to the thumbnails. You can see the filename using the infotip (on mouse hover) or the Details pane or press F2 key for a fake rename.
- If you start a drag while xplorer² window is not upfront, then the window will stay behind to help you find the drop target. This is how windows explorer does it. Alternatively you can use ALT+TAB keys while dragging (or hover over the windows taskbar) to bring your target drop window upfront.

xplorer² LITE 3.2.0.2:

- Following public outcry, undid the recent change for network folder tree synchronization. It should make tree expansion faster in all modes (even when advanced option "Faster network access..." isn't selected).
- When running as a forced administrator (elevated) xplorer² will show a [*] on the window titlebar. You can also tell the same looking at the state of the menu command WINDOW > ADMINISTRATOR, which is disabled if you are running elevated.
- Czech translation corrected.

xplorer² LITE 3.1.0.1:

- Version 3.1 adds support for frequent folders and Windows 10 compatibility.

xplorer² LITE 2.5.0.4:

- Registry setting GAOPT_HOOKWINKEY (=536,870,912) installs a global hook to start xplorer2 with WIN+E key IF xplorer² is set to replace windows explorer.

xplorer2 lite 1.8.1.4:

- Better Windows 7 integration including fast icon thumbnails from system cache.
