Directory Opus 12.17.4 (Beta)

Directory Opus 12.17.4 (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 12.17.3 beta:

  • Fixed some 32-bit programs not appearing in the Open With menu if they registered themselves in a particular way.
  • Transition Animations are no longer used on systems with mixed DPIs. (High DPI is fine, but all monitors need use the same scaling for the animations to work correctly.)
  • Fixed shadows on certain elements, and highlights around Preferences search results, looking wrong over windows which straddle monitors of different DPIs.
  • Experimental workaround for pop-up menus and tooltips opening with the wrong size or position in some mixed-DPI situations. (This is a fairly awful bug in Windows 10 when using monitors that don't all have the same DPI.) If this causes problems (e.g. flashing windows when menus open), it can be turned off via Preferences / Miscellaneous / Advanced [Troubleshooting]: mixed_dpi_mitigations.
  • Fix for previous beta hiding the viewer toolbar from Customize > Toolbars so you could no longer modify its visual properties.
  • Fixed a problem when the Rename command was run with filenames provided by the {file} command sequence and a filename contained a wildcard character.
  • Fixed memory leak when pasting text or image data into new files via Ctrl-V in the file display.
