Re: Help requested diagnosing this issue

We can't test winh Windows 7, but as I said, you can test the other programs and find, where is the problem, just replace Notepad++ with notepad and FC with Explorer and test with the same steps. Anyway, if you're not sure if it's a FC, Windows, or Notepad++, you can try to reproduce it with FC+Not...

Re: Help requested diagnosing this issue

Notepad++ 7.8.5 After my upgrade to Win10 (~3weeks ago) I can't do tests on Win7 any more but I'm more than sure that there weren't problems like yours. Since that version of Notepad++ is over 10 months old, unfortunately, it's like comparing apples to oranges. There have been 7 releases of Notepad...

Thanks. Which version of Notepad++ x32 portable did you test with?

I tested with v7.9.1 and v7.9.2.

Win10 has different windows management code from Win7, so testing on Win7 is likely necessary.

Re: Help requested diagnosing this issue

I agree, it's definitely a bug. Although it's possible, I doubt it's a Windows bug. Whether or not it's a FreeCommander bug, I'm not certain. I think it's most likely a FreeCommander bug or a Notepad++ bug. That circles around to your request of another application to use for testing. As I wrote in ...

Re: Help requested diagnosing this issue

Given that I am likely the #1 bug reporter for FreeCommander in recent years, I think I'm pretty good at actually reporting bugs, don't you? This isn't a bug report. It's asking for help getting enough details to report an issue accurately. I tested using FreeCommander version 840 donor 64-bit on Wi...

FreeCommander.find.ini gets saved even when auto-save for settings is disabled

840 64-bit donor portable Win7 FreeCommander.find.ini gets saved (including settings for sort columns and column widths), even if auto-save for settings is disabled. I think this is best to be considered a bug because other settings for sort columns and column widths do not get saved when auto-save ...

Help requested diagnosing this issue

Has anyone else experienced the issue in which you use FreeCommander to open a file, and then when you close the application that was opened to display/edit the file, the foreground window is no longer FreeCommander? The issue seems to be quite random, and so it has been very difficult to develop co...

Re: 840 - Some characters not available for searching in Quick Starter

:shock: omg, @Marek the colon (:) really works in the quick filter field of Quick starter but it works differently than the 'normal' characters. if I launch Quick starter I usually just start typing to activate the quick filter field - that's brilliant and intuitive. if I want to use the colon char...

Re: 840 - Some characters not available for searching in Quick Starter

you're correct again, of course it's colon : (I'm not native English!) and it doesn't surprise me that colon doesn't work in Quick starter search field In either case, the issue is present in the Quick Search UI's quick filter input field, which searches descriptive text, and not filenames. That de...

Re: 840 - Some characters not available for searching in Quick Starter

you're correct BUT the semi-colon (:) is an illegal character for file/folder names so I guess it's more a feature than a bug It might be a language difference... I've always referred to this character : as a colon, not a semi-colon. Yes, the colon is used after a drive letter, and not within a fil...

840 - Cannot enter some characters into Quick Filter input fields if assigned as keyboard shortcut

FC 840 donor 64-bit (Win7) When focus is in any Quick Filter input field, and a keyboard shortcut is assigned to a valid filename character, the keyboard shortcut is evoked instead of entering the desired text. For example, configure spacebar to switch between panes (very handy). Then it becomes imp...

840 - Wipe UI has almost illegible when using OS dark theme

FC 840 donor 64-bit (Win7)

When using a dark theme for the OS, FC's wipe UI becomes very difficult to use.

The yellow areas and the status bar in that UI all have UX issues.

Here is a visual example:

840 - Some characters not available for searching in Quick Starter

FC Version 840 Donor 64bit Win7

Some characters will not work in the Quick Starter quick filter field. An example is the colon character (:).

An odd workaround is to disable quick the filter field and then re-enable it.

Re: 840 - FC does not restore its own window when Quick Starter opens a folder

confirmed. BUT: I must admit that I really appreciate the "new" behavior (i.e. main FCXE-window doesn't pop up when using Quick starter) I agree! I like how it does not pop up when simply launching Quick Starter. But when I use Quick Starter to open a tab in FreeCommander, I think FreeCom...
