Directory Opus version

An update for Directory Opus is now available for download from the GP Software website.

Directory Opus Version

  • Added support for MP3 'BPM' (beats per minute) field

  • Added a new advanced option to disable the normal behaviour of the 'find-as-you-type' field when the same letter is pressed repeatedly. Normally this will scroll through all files beginning with that letter but with the fayt_firstchar_repeat option turned off, normal string matching will be performed

  • Navigation Lock was broken in the previous release, now fixed.

  • The 'Auto select first file in folder' option no longer steals focus from the Folder Tree

  • Fixed crash that could occur in Clipboard PASTE when pasting text (only happened in conjunction with WindowBlinds compatibility mode)

  • Fixed problem with WindowBlinds compatibility mode preventing Go LASTACTIVELISTER from working

  • Pasting text into the rename dialog now only strips spaces from the beginning or end of the pasted text if it would result in the new filename beginning or ending in a space

  • If the Go FOLDERCONTENT command is added to the All Folders filetype, this now works from the Folder Tree

  • Fixed a problem dragging files from a collection when multiple files in different paths are selected

  • Fixed a problem with Album thumbnail sizing and rendering, and a more general problem with Folder thumbnails when the state of the dynamic thumbnail sizing option was changed.

  • The ability to override the system Windows hotkeys (Windows-E etc) now works in 2000/XP as well as Vista

  • The 'Sort shortcuts to folders like folders' option is no longer ignored when coming out of FlatView mode

  • Fixed a problem with layouts that open multiple overlapping Listers - it was possible to end up with the active Lister behind a non-active one, and a click would not properly bring it to the front

  • Drag & drop from a RAR file with encrypted filenames no longer asks repeatedly for the password

  • Renaming a folder from the Folder Tree now updates the Undo List correctly

  • Fixed a problem with file change notification not working reliably beyond a junction point

  • Fixed a crash on Windows 2000 in the initial setup wizard

  • The Go SWAP command now behaves consistently in a dual-Lister and in a multiple single-Lister scenario

  • Double-clicking a .url file inside the Windows Favorites folder no longer displays a security prompt on Vista

  • Fixed a crash when logging actions on files with Unicode filenames

  • The Clipboard COPYNAMES command now operates on the Folder Tree when it has focus

  • It is now possible to drag and drop folders to the 'exclusion' list in Preferences / Launching Opus / Explorer Replacement. This can make it easier to add system folders that don’t appear in the Browse Folders dialog

  • Opus should now maintain the selection state of files that are overwritten by a 'safe-save' operation (e.g. Word)
