Directory Opus 12.17.3 (Beta)

Directory Opus 12.17.3 (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 12.17.2 beta:

  • The image viewer now lets you scroll left and right with the mouse wheel by holding the Alt key. (Assuming the wheel is set to scroll the image in Preferences.)
  • The standalone viewer's factory default toolbar now has Open Containing Folder and Refresh in the File menu, and a button to open the containing folder on the main toolbar. (To pick up these changes, you'll need to right-click the empty part of your viewer toolbar and choose the option to reset it.)
  • The Open With menu now includes "Metro" applications from the Microsoft Store.
  • Added the SHELLVERB and SHELLCLASS arguments to the FileType command. This provides the ability to launch files and folders via the Windows shell, bypassing Opus's internal logic, with the options of specifying the verb and file type or application class to use.
  • When inline-renaming a file, Ctrl-W to upper-case all words now leaves the file extension alone (unless it is part of the text selection).
  • Fixed problem introduced in previous beta which could cause folder size/contents calculation to be performed twice if displayed in the folder infotip.
  • Possible fix for Excel's preview handler not resizing correctly when first opened.
  • The command Copy TO="ask:{sourcepath}" now works correctly.
  • Fix for very rare crash that could happen when changing folders while Flat View was refreshing.
  • Fix for Preview Handlers and ActiveX viewers not resizing correctly when using Remote Desktop between Windows 10 machines at different DPIs.
  • Fixed new Listers not being correctly snapped to a monitor when opening under certain DPI situations.
  • The Directory Opus Archives -> Extract Here context menu command now works from within a file collection (e.g. from Find Results - the files will be placed in the same folder as the zip file itself).
  • Fix for Opus running with Below Normal priority if launched via the installer, or via Explorer Replacement from an elevated process when not already running.
