Re: Bug or "feature"? Selector jumps unnecessarily

I just thought of another possibility. Windows has a strange way of sorting filenames containing special characters. In your example, you changed Ck22.docx to Ck22-FINAL.docx Try changing it to Ck22_FINAL.docx Using the Underscore character in place of the Dash character can change the sort. So to m...

Re: Bug or "feature"? Selector jumps unnecessarily

- I edit the name, turning it into “ck22-FINAL.docx”. I leave the filename editor with the return key. - Immediately upon doing so, the screen changes. My edited name, ck22-FINAL.docx, jumps to the bottom of the screen, even though the alphabetic sequence did not change. That’s the “jumping” I was ...

Re: Bug or "feature"? Selector jumps unnecessarily

I cannot confirm the behavior you reported. I tested R-685 x32 on a Win 7 x64 system. I set up a folder with enough files to fill the file panel 2 times and set the details sort mode to filename. When I edited a file name, the file position would remain the same if the sort did NOT change; it would ...

Re: 687 - DOS Box has stopped working

I also noticed that the following works as well:

DosCommandBoxSpec=%comspec%

This sets the system defined command processor (which is of course cmd.exe)

Re: 687 - DOS Box has stopped working

That workaround solved the issue!

Thank you so much. The next question is, why did this happen?

687 - DOS Box has stopped working

Any attempt to bring up the DOS Box Fails: Ctl-D, Tools>DOS box, or a Toolbar Button

This happens for FCXE-687 32-bit and 64-bit Portable versions

The DOS Box works correctly in 685 and 686 (and other earlier versions)


System: Windows 7 Pro 64-bit SP1

Re: Scrolling via Thinkpad Touchpad is not working in FC

I have a Toshiba Satellite P-50 with Windows 8.1 I tried the Registry Edit suggested by Marek and it had no affect on the scroll operations in Windows File Explorer or FreeCommander XE (R673). However, I found that after using the touchpad to position the cursor to the scroll bar, I had to press the...

I agree. It takes up too much space.

Re: Mouse Wheel Scroll - Still an issue?

I posted about this bug last January ( http://www.forum.freecommander.com/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=5622#p17434 ) Notice that the number of lines scrolled in the list pane will change based on the operating system. So this is not a number hard coded into FreeCommanderXE. I would also like to see this fixe...

Re: 672 - Can't run third-party installer from FCXE 64-bit

This is just an idea...

I use Avast Anti-Virus (Free) and I often have to disable Avast when I am installing software, because it gets in the way with constant popup windows and can mess with the timing of the installer. I always disable it when I install Windows updates.

I hope this helps.

Re: New Word document in context menu creates a text file

An additional curiosity is the modified dates of files created with the "New" context menu. A text file is created with today's date. An Excel file is created with a modified date in Feb 2000. A Word file is created with a modified date in Aug 1997. They all should have today's date. This may be due...

Re: New Word document in context menu creates a text file

Confirmed! When using the context menu "New" to create a Microsoft Word or Microsoft Excel document and entering only a "name" (without an extension) will create a file named <name>.txt. However, if an extension is added in the prompt window, that extension is used to name the file. In each case, th...

Re: Mouse-wheel line-scroll settings ignored

Can you be more specific as to which "crappy mouse software" was causing the problem? I am using the latest version of the Logitech Setpoint Software and have the same problem with scrolling many lines in the list display. I also found that adding the line FileListMouseWheelScrollMultiplier=1 in the...

Re: Select all files problem - FCXE-652 or FCXE-652x64

Update for FCXE-662 or FCXE-662 x64 This problem is better in this release, but NOT fixed. The toolbar icon for "Select all files" is no longer dimmed when a FOLDER is selected in the TREE and either the icon is clicked or keystroke (Ctl + Num+) is used. Problem 1: When a FOLDER is selected in the T...

Re: [661] Issue: The file/folder name is not valid

I confirmed the same action, if I rename folder "Folder-xx" to "Folder-x" in the file list display, I get the Invalid File Name message. However, if I try the same rename in the Tree display, it works normally. The action is the same in Beta 661 x86 and x64. The message occurs for both files and fol...
