Directory Opus (Beta)

Directory Opus beta is now available for all Opus 10 users.

32-bit version:    Universal    Deutsch    简化字
64-bit version:    Universal    Deutsch    简化字

This is a preliminary, beta release. Translations may not be fully up-to-date and some English text may appear in non-English versions.

The following is a guide to the changes in the Directory Opus beta:


  • Added a new option - Preferences / Miscellaneous / Advanced: show_release_history - which allows you to prevent the release history from appearing the first time you use a new version.

Bug fixes

  • Fixed inline rename oddity where pressing Shift+Home would leave the caret selection at the end of the selection range rather than the beginning.
  • Fixed the SmartFavorites list showing the same path more than once.
  • Fixed the SmartFavorites list showing multiple entries for virtual folders like Desktop.
  • SmartFavorites now ignores MTP and FTP paths, as well as virtual folders which would not be suitable for creating a shortcut.
  • Fixed SmartFavorites not checking existence of library and collection paths at startup when configured to.
  • Fixed "Save As" from the viewer not working (potentially even crashing) for images on MTP devices.
  • You can now use the Go command's EXISTINGLISTER argument with other arguments which generate a list of drives or folders, e.g. Go DRIVEBUTTONS EXISTINGLISTER.
  • Fixed tab lock (if set) being inherited from the default Lister when a new window opens for a double-clicked folder and Opus is configured to just open a tab for the folder without the default Lister's other tab(s).
  • Fixed file display becoming unusable if a locked folder tab showed a directory which was then deleted.
  • Fixed bug that stopped dimensions being shown for images in thumbnails mode if their thumbnails came from the cache.
