Directory Opus version

Directory Opus version - December 17th 2008

A free update for all Directory Opus 9 users is now available for download from GP Software.

Bugs fixed / minor changes:

  • Fixed problem multiple-line functions that modify the file selection (e.g. by calling the Select command) - it was possible in some cases for the first file to be processed twice.
  • The Compatibility Files feature now supports the Program Files (x86) folder in Vista/XP x64.
  • The Go SWITCHPATH command now supports aliases. The SWITCHPATH argument now supports more than one alternative path, to enable cycling through as many paths as desired. E.g. Go C:\ SWITCHPATH D:\ E:\ F:\ would cycle through the C, D, E and F drives.
  • Shift+F10 now correctly brings up the context menu in the Folder Tree.
  • Fixed a problem where some images converted from TIFF to JPG would not be recognised in Photoshop.
  • Fixed several problems with Drag & Drop in terms of the feedback cursor and behaviour on drop. The cursor you see should now correctly indicate the drop action in all cases.
  • Drag & Drop from SmartFTP to Opus now works.
  • Drag & Drop in List Mode now lets you scroll the list to the left or right by hovering at the edge of the window.
  • Fixed a problem with the Viewer Plugin SDK where paletted images provided to Opus did not correctly respect their transparency settings.
  • The Keep On Top function in the Lister window menu did not work correctly; fixed.
  • In Thumbnails mode, selecting a file by pressing the space bar now updates the viewer pane correctly.
  • The Copy EXTRACT HERE command now works correctly on folders as well as archives.
  • Fixed a problem whereby input focus could be lost after deleting a folder if there was a text file viewed in the viewer pane.
  • The Copy MOVEWHENSAME function did not work correctly between sub-directories under junction points.
  • The command sequence {sourcepath|..|nopath} now correctly gives the name of the parent folder rather than the current folder.
  • External commands run through the FAYT field (by typing >) now have their current directory set correctly.
  • Ctrl+Home/End now works correctly in Power/Details mode.
  • Fixed a problem with File Descriptions when used with files in a junction folder on a network drive.
  • The Flat View setting in Lister Styles now works correctly.
  • Fixed a problem where activating a style could create duplicate folder tabs in some cases.
  • The Author and Keywords columns now work correctly with recent Office documents.
  • Icon Sets stored in /dopusglobaldata are now correctly exported to USB.
  • Icon mode range-selection points are now correctly updated when files are added or removed from the list.
  • Fixed a crash that could occur if you dragged the Control Panel icon to a File Collection.
  • If a folder is open in a Lister and that folder is moved, the Lister now automatically updates to show the new location.
  • Button icon definitions now support environment variables.
  • ActiveX plugin: Fix for SWF (etc.) files not displaying if viewed directly from UNC paths.
  • Added support for Photoshop (PSD) CMYK and 8-bit indexed images.
  • Fixed several minor cosmetic bugs.
