Directory Opus 12.26.2 (Beta)

Directory Opus 12.26.2 (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 12.26.1:

  • The recently added option to choose whether to display folder icons or lightbulb (Opus logo) icons is now set to lightbulbs by default. If you want to use folder icons you can select this from Preferences / Display / Options / Use current folder's icon.
  • Cosmetic fixes/improvements for borders around a few controls on Windows 11.
  • Fix for very slow handling of some Photoshop PSD files due to extreme metadata bloat in the form of Adobe's document history tracking.
  • Text and TextThumbs plugins now ignore files that start with the PaintDotNet signature, so they can be displayed via its thumbnail handler instead. (Most data at the start of PDN's file format is text, so they looked like text files to both plugins.)
  • Fixed problem with automatic path completion in the location field with aliases beginning with a . character.
  • Fix for using Windows Search below mount points.
  • Fixed issue in previous beta which meant duplicate context menu items were removed even if the duplicates weren't all at the top level. This also caused problems if Opus-specific items which started or ended sub-menus were filtered out, causing menu items after them to go into the wrong menu level.
  • Scripting DOpus.Create.Blob("test") with no encoding specified creates a UTF16 string again, as per the documentation.
  • Troubleshooting setting context_menu_debug now logs more information.
  • Blocked Daemon Tools shell extensions by default. See Shell extensions which are blocked by default if you wish to re-enable them, but keep in mind they have caused crashes for several people.
