Directory Opus 12.17.1 (Beta)

Directory Opus 12.17.1 (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.


Changes since 12.17:

  • Fixed a problem which meant sorting by File Count columns didn't work reliably after changing/reading folders.

  • Fixed inline rename in icon and thumbnails modes not always expanding the edit control's height when needed.

  • Added support for a method of hiding special folders (e.g. OneDrive) from the folder tree which is used by File Explorer but was ignored by Opus until now.

  • Added support hiding the OneDrive Business folder from the tree via Preferences.

  • Fixed problem where a dialog displayed by a function (e.g. the Copy As dialog) could end up being hidden if the progress indicator was minimized.

  • Improved positioning logic when the Default Lister is set to open "always over the mouse pointer". While adjusting the position to avoid existing Listers, minimized windows are now ignored and if there isn't room on the bottom/right it now also tries the top/left.

  • Ctrl + Mouse Wheel to change font/thumbnail size in Listers is now back to normal, after the up/down directions were swapped in 12.17.

  • Toolbar buttons which run Set SHOWFILTERFILENAME=regex:... and similar using regular expressions now toggle and indicate their states correctly.
  • When the standalone viewer is in windowed mode and auto-sizes, it can now grow slightly wider and taller, into Windows 10's invisible resizing borders.

  • Fixed viewer issue where you could not scroll all the way to the right of images wider than 32768 pixels (after any zoom was applied).

  • Fixed problem with searching for a string in the text viewer in hex mode, via the FAYT (it wouldn't be case sensitive in some situations).

  • Internal viewer performance fix when drag-selecting images.

  • Animated Gif plug-in changes:

    • Now supports selections with fixed aspect ratios.
    • Performance fix when drag-selecting images.
    • Now supports assigning Expand/Scroll Image to left double-click. This includes being able to open the expanded image when it is not being scaled down, similar to the internal viewer (only for double-clicks). (Previously, expanding was only possible when single-clicking the left or middle button.)
    • Now supports the Show VIEWERCMD=dragsel command used by advanced script add-ins for esoteric mouse button behavior.
  • Blocked the File Renamer Turbo context menu extension ("shell.dll") by default, as it crashes Opus when right-clicking files.

  • Fixed crash if @hideifpath: was added to a button with no path after it.
  • Scripting changes:

    • Script columns have a new timeout property which can override the default 10 second timeout before Opus gives up waiting for them in situations where calculation is blocking things from continuing (e.g. filters and Print/Export Folder Listing).
    • With a dual-display Lister, DOpus.Create.BusyIndicator now affects the side of the tab you give it, or uses the source tab if you give it a Lister.
