Re: feature request: reset button, usage of space bar to scroll

For number (1), I think defining your convenient layouts (shortcuts "alt+1", etc) is quite ok.
So, I think there is no need for a new ESCAPE feature.

Re: Drag&Drop to Address Bar

In Adressbar no, it doesn't work, but you can try to drop to ".." in the active or inactive panel.

File list background color if "Folders are hidden"

In "Settings->View->File/folder list" we can change the background color for different situations: - quick filter active - plain view active - only selected active Since I usually forget that I used "Show/Hide folders" and after that I get a little confused when I see no folders, it would be nice to...

Re: FEATURE REQUEST- Quick change settings

I suppose you could do this as workaround (but I am not sure): 1. Rename your ini FC settings file using a unique prefix: for example "myuniqueprefix_" 2. in Settings -> Programs -> Default Action associate for "myuniqueprefix_*.ini" a bat file that would contain something like this: taskkill /IM fr...

Re: Favorites lost

I had this problem for a very long time (especially when drag and drop a file into the left favorite items), so I always had a backup of my settings for this situation.

For a while now, in version 760 that I use, I haven't had this problem.

Re: 761 - Error schema dialog at start

For me the problem is solved when I display layouts.

The only annoyance is that if 1 folder is not available I get 4 messages "The system cannot find the path specified". I don't know what would happen if both folder were missing.

Re: FreeCommander XE "not so obvious" settings

I don't really know if this works on the public release and if this is mentioned somewhere, but it's cool... When you create a button on a toolbar, and insert an ampersand before a letter in the name of the button, ALT + that letter will become a hotkey for your button, unless there is already a def...

Re: Feature Request - Move Selected Files Up One Level

As far as I understand, you need to insert a counter for all files sorted by level of subfolder -> that is by the Location column in Freecommnader Multi Rename. You can do this in multirenamer. The problem would be solved if MultiRename implemented (apart from obviously "Rename" action) "Move" and "...

Re: 761 - Error schema dialog at start

Please also note that the shortcuts for layouts (alt+1, alt+2...) seem not to work anymore.

For alt+1 I get the message "No colors saved for the selected layout!" and for alt+2 nothing happens.

Re: "Save selection" from "Edit" destroys relative paths

You can use %FcSrcDrive% or %FcSrcPath% - I tested with editors and it works, more here: http://www.freecommander.com/fchelpxe/en/Configurationfolder.html You are right!!! I don't know why I didn't try this... :oops: So instead of "..\editor.exe" I should have used"%FcSrcPath% \..\editor.exe" I wil...

Re: Copy and move selected file to folders

Try this (not sure it works or is the best solution) Insert this in parameter of the button you create (quotation marks are important) - replace copyfolderpath and movefolderpath with your folders: /c for %i in (%ActivSel%) do (copy %ActivSel% "CopyFolderPath\%~ni%~xi") && for %i in (%ActivSel%) do ...

Re: Search Syntax for Quick Filter

1. find files without a certain expression (i.e. find files without the word "light"). I tried -[light] or [!light] or -"light" but they didn´t work. This is how I do for quick filtering: 1. I use "light" for quick filter 2. select all result 3. dispable quick filter 4. invert selection - only file...

This is a huge labour saving feature when doing a large number of changes to file names.
If you do this a lot, it's better to use https://www.advancedrenamer.com
Use "LIST" renaming method, and you can edit very easily the filenames:
