Re: Odd behavior with Quick Viewer identifying file types

Thanks for the reply. I've now removed "xml" from the file types treated as "Internet" so that other XML files (such as *.proj and *.config) are not shown in the browser. It seems a little odd that the presence of a BOM triggers FreeCommander to treat the file as RTF, as many different file types ma...

Odd behavior with Quick Viewer identifying file types

I have an odd issue when searching for text through all csproj files (XML files for MSBuild) within a directory tree. In the search results I select a csproj file and press Ctrl+q to view the matching text in the file. This works fine when the file has a byte-order marker (BOM) and the matching text...

Permanent file exclusion when searching?

When using the "Search files/folders" dialog, I almost always want to exclude searching in certain files, e.g., *.exe;*.dll;*.obj;*.zip, many hundreds of which exist in our source tree. Is there a way to configure FreeCommandXE such that the "Exclude files" field is automatically set to a given list...

Next public release?

It's now been a year since the last public release - can we expect a new release anytime soon?

Thanks,

Re: Inconsistent file quoting in main window vs search resul

In case others run into the same problem, the following short program (C#, built as a Windows app) can be used as a work around. After compiling, I register it with FreeCommander as the program to be invoked when pressing F4. The program fixes up any inconsistency in the arg list prior to invoking e...

Inconsistent file quoting in main window vs search results

[using FreeCommander XE build 665 public beta] In the Settings I've configured an editor as follows: Program: C:\emacs\bin\emacsclientw.exe Parameters: -n %ActiveItem% When I select a file in FreeCommand and press F4 to invoke the editor, the selected file is passed to the editor as expected. If the...

Editor parameter missing when invoked from search results

I'm using FreeCommander XE build 638. In the Settings I've configured the editor to be emacsclient.exe, as follows: Program: C:\emacs\bin\emacsclient.exe Parameters: -n %ActiveItem% When I invoke the editor (F4) from the main view, the selected file is shown in Emacs as expected and the command line...

Search results - advanced mode?

The search results window has an option "advanced mode". What exactly does this do?

Thanks,

Search results - default sort order?

When I use the "Search files/folders" window, the search results are sorted in reverse alphabetical order. I realize I can click the Name column to switch it to alphabetical order, but is there any way to configure it to always sort the results in alphabetical order?

Thanks,

John.

Problems with trailing backslashes

If I invoke FreeCommander from the command line as follows: FreeCommander.exe /C /T /R=C:\Windows\ .. the folder is displayed in the right pane (as expected), but pressing Backspace (or clicking the two dots) to move up a folder has no effect. It would be very helpful if FreeCommand could strip any ...

601 - cannot set item colors

If I bring up the Settings dialog and specify colors for some file types, that works fine. However, if I bring up the Settings dialog a second time and try to set some more colors for different file types, it has no effect. Bringing up the dialog again shows the first set of colors; the second set a...

Re: Quick filter off - keyboard shortcut no longer works

Ctrl+y now seems to act as a toggle, so pressing it a second time hides the quick filter.

Re: Quick filter off - keyboard shortcut no longer works

I've already clicked in the panel once to give it focus. If I press Ctrl+Y to use the quick filter and type some text to filter the view, I should be able to easily turn off the filter with Alt+Y. It really doesn't make sense to have to click in the panel a second time and feels quite broken to me! ...
