Directory Opus 12.24.5 (Beta)

Directory Opus 12.24.5 (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 12.24.4:

Please note that as an experiment, on an ARM64 system the 12.24.5 installer will install the x64 build rather than the x86 build. If you're going to try the beta on ARM64 and previously had Opus installed you should backup your configuration and uninstall the 32 bit version before installing this version.
  • New/improved ability to copy info tip text to the clipboard:
    • Text containing markup, such as info tips for images with EXIF metadata, now has the markup removed from the clipboard copy.

    • A new command Clipboard COPYINFOTIP lets you assign the action to any hotkey. (Previously undocumented hardcoded keys: Ctrl+Shift+Alt+C works by default, but is quite hard to type. Ctrl+Alt+C can also work but is overridden by the default toolbars. You can now pick a hotkey yourself instead.)

    • The action now works for both file displays in a dual-display Lister. (Previously, it only worked if the info tip came from the source side.)

  • The Treat all virtual folders as real option no longer overrides (forces on) the Native display of the Desktop option, in Preferences / Folders / Virtual Folders.
  • The folder tree lock is now cleared if you save the default Lister when the tree is turned off. Previously, you'd have to turn on the tree, unlock it, save the default Lister, then turn off the tree again and save the default Lister again.
  • Commands which can take a filter name or a wildcard can now be given a string with the wild: prefix to force the rest to be interpreted as a wildcard. For example, if it's a wildcard like ~(xyz) which doesn't include any *, ? or | characters, and where the wildcard characters could also be valid filename characters.
  • Fixed a crash introduced in 12.24.3 when editing certain script configurations.

  • Fixed overlapping transition animations if the standalone viewer opened on a marked picture.
  • Fixed script dialog drop-down controls with lots of items not having scrollbars.

  • Scripts enumerating folders via the Windows Shell -- i.e. FSUtil.ReadDir(path, "s") -- now include Hidden+System files. Previously, Hidden files were included but only if they didn't also have the System attribute.

  • Scripts which enumerate the Desktop recursively would be given the wrong path for items in the public desktop folder. This is now fixed.

  • Cleaned up the behavior of DOpus.Create.Vector when given multiple arguments where the first one is a vector. It now adds each argument as a member instead of copying the content of the first argument and ignoring the others.
