Re: FC Locks Drive - Can't Eject Safely

My issue was that it would not eject even when the drive was NOT showing in any tab. I haven't experienced your problem, BGM. I wonder if something else is going on in the background, not related to FC (although what you reported in your OP does point to FC). My experience is like alf5000 -- if the...

My impression was that the reviewer is not very familiar with file managers, and has not spent a lot of time with them to appreciate the differences. I could be wrong, though.

But his problem is when dropping onto FCXE, not when dragging out of it.

Re: do quick filter right from hitting letters

Ah, now I understand. Thanks!

I had thought that the OP wanted to find files beginning with the prefix, whereas he actually wants to bypass that part. So the request is to be able to perform a quick filter directly (similar to a progressive jump) without using the Quick Filter box or shortcut.

Re: Drag and drop into FC from desktop not working

With Win7/x64, I can drag from the desktop onto FCXE 612.

I suspect the source of your problem is that wonderful Win8, which has changed how some things work. Hopefully other Win8 users can test this.

This would be a nice, ergonomic option. Good idea :D

Re: do quick filter right from hitting letters

I may still not understand the OP, but I'll try to summarize what's available in FC XE. ------- 1. Progressive jump Matches beginning from the first character of names. In a File/Folder list, start typing and the focus will jump to the first match. Type more characters to narrow the match. Up/Down c...

Re: Junction Point features

Perhaps the default setting of Apply For...
should be "Files and Folders" instead of "Files"?

Users would begin from that as the most inclusive setting, and customize it to more limited settings of either "Files" or "Folders." That would avoid surprises such as zakb01 experienced.

Re: do quick filter right from hitting letters

What you describe is already available in FC XE: Ctrl+Y to focus the Quick Filter box, and a drop-down history list of previous filters to select from. http://www.freecommander.com/fc_beta_en.htm EDIT: But perhaps I have misunderstood your point. You can also achieve essentially the same thing witho...

612 - [FIXED] Grid lines erased

Show gridlines is enabled for Details view (in Settings > View > File/Folder List > General tab). Problem new to 612: When the mouse pointer moves over cells in any column, gridlines are erased (disappear). They can be restored by refreshing the view. This occurs with full-row select either on or of...

... I assume this is what Attributes->Reparse point is supposed to do but I can't seem to make it work ... Here's what I did to make it work: 1. Folder menu > Filter > Set Filter > Define. 2.
