Re: Custom Menu For "Quick Starter"

That is already available

You can create your own Favorite Toolbar and then add a Category to it. And then to that Category a list of New Items [your EXEs, TXT files or whatever] . That list will then appear as a drop down menu when you click the icon of that Category on a given Favorite Toolbar

Re: Main menu disappear if defined as "Show menu as toolbar"

[...] If, for some reason, the menu is not visible, you can use the context menu in the status bar to redisplay the menu. Yes, that finally allowed me to see my Menu with all of the the colors I have chosen for my Color Schema And my I add: I also finally got to see all of Menu in my colors, not ju...

Separator and New Item creation and movement on FAVORITE Toolbar issues

There are these user unfriendly behaviors when you try to adjust your Favorite Toolbar. One bug, one suggestion and two somewhere-in-between 1] The Bug If you go via Customize Favorite Toolbar and already have some Separators on a given toolbar, then when you add new ones and move them around [adjus...

When a Category sub-menu on Favorite Toolbar exceeds the height of the screen sometimes the scroll icons does not appear

This bug is practically the same problem on which I elaborated on the Mp3tg forum in regards to the user defined long menu that is created in Mp3tag when "too many" Actions are added: https://community.mp3tag.de/t/action-group-scroll-down-icon-not-showing-up-again/18377/ Please check out the screens...

Re: An icon shortcut for a BAT file - executing code on content of the active tab?

I finally managed to come up with almost the exact answer to my problem; and a second half-measure 1] The Splitter can hold icons with predefined quick filters. These simple filters [like for example "*.WAV"] can be predefined under the Tool > Settings > Quick Search / Filter / Starter > Quick Filte...

Re: Files selected in Plain View cannot be dropped sometimes on a third party software

In regards to Mp3tag: newer versions, supposedly starting with 2.87d, contain some kind of workaround that takes care of this issue

I can attest that in Mp3tag version 2.88a there is no longer problem with that kind of selection from FC being dropped on it

Re: How to create a tab for the Documents folder - and then shorten its name?

I also do not understand this limited approach to this feature If FC is giving the user the ability to change the name of an individual Tab, the why is the name of the Drive still visible? If the user is making up a name of the folder then the user should also have the ability to choose to hide the ...

Re: How to create a tab for the Documents folder - and then shorten its name?

But I can see those individual Properties option lacks one vital user friendly thing: the Apply feature

That Apply that is available for other options- so that you can see changes [of colors] without the need of closing the window in which you are changing them

Re: How to create a tab for the Documents folder - and then shorten its name?

Stupid me I assumed that this would not be possible in a normal way and did not even bother to check the on-line help; and indulged myself in some workarounds While all I had to do was to right click the given tab and choose it Properties. And now I can even change its color, without affecting the o...

Re: Items color but just extension column

As a workaround: code your format files with icons


For example I use one and the same icon for all audio formats- and distinguish between them with color of that icon. Very effective and aesthetic

An option for reverting to the previous name of the file

In the Multi Rename tool the user can change names of files- but also [before closing the window of that tool] the user can revert the changes. And that is a real reversion as the change really occur in real time- the change of name does not only appear in the window of the Multi Rename tool, waitin...
