Directory Opus 12.15.4 (Beta)

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



  • Changes related to Lister Styles which specify Folder Tab Groups:

    • The Close existing folder tabs checkboxes within Styles are now used exclusively when applying a style. The similar checkbox within Folder Tab Groups still works when loading a tab group on its own, but not when loading one via a Style. This is the main change which may affect existing configs.
    • Styles which explicitly specify File Display: Single, but also specify a Tab Group which has tabs on both sides will no longer switch to a dual-display Lister; right-hand tabs will be ignored.
    • When a Tab Group is specified, the options under it (View Mode, Format, etc.) which are disabled in the UI are now also ignored when applying the Style. Previously, they would still be applied.
    • If a Style specified a dual-side Tab Group in the UI for the left side (which loads folders into both left and right), and nothing at all in the UI for the right side, applying the Style would first load the default folder into the right side, before loading the Tab Group over or in addition to it.
  • If Explorer Replacement is configured to open into a new, dual-display Lister, the left hand display which the double-clicked path is loaded into will now always be given focus, regardless of how the default Lister was set up.
  • Go TABCLOSE now works with the TABPOS argument. While you could specify a tab index using the PATH argument before, this change allows things like closing the next tab (Go TABCLOSE TABPOS=+1) or previous tab (Go TABCLOSE TABPOS=-1) relative to the current tab.
  • Addressed a situation where the Jobs Bar Arrow appearing could place a background Lister on top of the active Lister if a new progress dialog appeared in a Lister which didn't currently have focus.
