Directory Opus 12.4.1 (Beta)

Directory Opus 12.4.1 (beta) is now available for all Opus 12 users.

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

This is an Opus 12 update. If you are using Opus 11 or earlier then you should not install this beta unless you want to upgrade to Opus 12.



  • File and folder labels can now be set as "pin to top". Any file with a label assigned to it that specifies pin to top will sort at the top of the file list, irrespective of the overall sort order. There's a new default Status category label (Pinned), although you note you'll need to reset the Preferences / Favorites and Recent / Labels page to defaults to see this in an existing configuration.
  • The GIF plugin now fully supports the Expand/Scroll mouse button option in the viewer, including quick rendering and animation support.
  • The rename dialog new name field now allows {scp:...} to be typed, to allow script column values to be used in the rename operation (previously the colon would be blocked).
  • The viewer was failing to indicate if the first image it opened with was marked unless the "Display Marked Pictures pane when a picture is marked" option was turned on.
  • Fixed a fairly obscure problem which could cause inline rename to be cancelled automatically when middle-clicking on a file in power mode with an OnActivateLister script installed that automatically sets the active lister to be source.
  • File tooltips triggered by holding down the control key are now clipped to the file display to prevent them appearing off-screen if the display is scrolled too far horizontally.
  • Fixed a problem with inline rename where the file extension could incorrectly be displayed (if it was hidden) when moving from one filename to the next using the cursor keys.
  • Fixed drag image/tooltip going behind submenus when dragging to toolbar in customize mode.
  • When clearing a collection using dopusrt.exe /col clear, sub-collections are no longer removed (previously they would be removed from the list, but not from disk, which meant they would come back after a restart). You can now use /col clear /full <name> to remove all contents including sub-collections.
  • The "Pin current folder to Quick Access" context menu command (when right-clicking on the root of the Quick Access folder in the tree) now works

  • Scripting:
    • In the OnOpenLister script event, it's now possible for the event to fire after a Lister has finished opening (including opening all its tabs) as well as before. If the new OpenListerData.after property is False, you should return True from the event handler. The event will then be called again with OpenListerData.after set to True once all the tabs are open.
    • The ImageMeta.latitude and longitude properties now return decimal coordinates. The coords property now returns a string containing latitude,longitude as decimal coordinates.
