744 brings improvements, but is still pretty buggy.

1) select a mix of file types
2) be sure jpg-file is the first file in the list
3) hit Enter --> some obscure "Print Pictures" dialog will appear

Topic split.

Bug confirmed, jpg+png+txt. I can't reproduce it with jpg+png only.

FC 744 64 bit, Windows 10 64 bit.

It works good in 742.

just found another issue

1) Plain view (Ctrl+B)
2) select a mix of different files
--- be sure at least one pdf is included
--- be sure you have files from different folders
-----> my virtual pdf-printer dialog (PDF24 Creator) starts up, but files are not opened

it seems as if some printing command is mistakenly triggered

Looks fixed here, in 745. alf5000, please confirm.

can't confirm flawless opening of files.
there is some remarkable improvement in 745, though.

opening multiple pdf-files from different folders brings an error message.
the first(alphabetically) pdf is opened but the rest can't be found.
BUT: if I also select another file-type (e.g. docx) in addition to pdf-files everything works correctly. :?:

Confirmed with 3 PDF files from different locations, in SumatraPDF 3.1.1 64-bit, FC 745 64-bit.

thank you for confirmation!

outch, here it is again on 745! :(
the print dialogue of my virtual printer PDF24 Creator (note: it is NOT set the default printer) starts up, but the selected files are not opening.

once again to make it clearer:
I selected a bunch of files (mix of doc, docx, pptx, pdf) from various sub-folders and they didn't open correctly but the files where sent to a non default printer.

[edit]
note that there is remarkable improvement in 745.
in my test scenario (one folder with one-level subfolders) it works much better BUT in my real life scenario (files are wide-spread on disk and sub-sub-sub folders) there ARE issues.

FCXE_762 has problems when opening multiple files with different file formats (in normal view - I didn't test plain view).

if you select a combination of different files .docx and .pdf AND if the last file in the row is a .pdf some error dialogues come up (sometimes even a virtual pdf-printer dialogue starts). strangely enough after closing all those unwanted error messages all files open correctly in their default programs - most of the time.

[edit]
some further investigation showed that this BUG WAS RE-INVENTED with FCXE_748 whereas 747 does it correctly

763 does a better job as long as all selected files are in the same directory.

BUT:
1) use plain view
2) select various items from different folders
3) be sure at least one .pdf file is in your selection
3) hit ENTER
==> all files are sent to my virtual PDF24 Printer (by the way, PDF24 is not set as my default printer)

768 does a really bad job in this regard.
768 is not capable of opening multiple files (from different folders) by hitting Enter.

770 looks pretty promising, problems seem to be fixed!

thanks a lot!
