Directory Opus 12.3.5 (Beta)

Directory Opus 12.3.5 (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.

This is an Opus 12 update. If you are using Opus 11 or earlier then you should not install this beta unless you want to upgrade to Opus 12.



  • Added {grp} status bar code, which returns the number of file groups displayed in the file display (when it's set to group).
  • Added the Show VIEWERCMD selaspect command, which allows the selection aspect ratio to be fixed in the standalone viewer.
  • Added option to folder thumbnail preferences to prevent folder thumbnail images from using the most recent images in the folder (instead images will be used alphabetically).
  • The Rename dialog's new copy/paste filenames function now respects the Ignore file extension option. Also illegal filename characters are now stripped when pasting filenames back into the list.
  • The viewer's new Expand/Scroll mode now works properly when the image is displayed below 100% zoom level and doesn't completely fit in the viewer window.
  • Moved the Cycle through pictures with mouse wheel option from Preferences / Viewer / Behaviour to Viewer / Mouse Buttons page, and added an additional option to zoom with the mouse wheel (without the Ctrl key needing to be held down).
  • Moved the Reset scroll position and Reset zoom level options from Preferences / Viewer / Appearance to Viewer / Behaviour.
  • Added DOpus.favorites script property which returns a Favorites object, allowing the user-defined favorite folder list to be queried and modified.
  • Added DOpus.smartfavorites property to give access to the smart favorites data.
  • Added def_value property to all script objects, which allows the default value to be accessed like a normal property to avoid weirdness with some script languages.
  • Fixed a problem where the Delete confirmation dialog would fail to activate if the command was preceded by a @confirm line.
  • The regular expression option in Folder Formats / Show filters and Hide filters wasn't being respected when a folder format was loaded in a file display.
  • Fixed DPI bug in Flickr sync dialog.
  • Fixed incompatibilities reading some PDF metadata.
  • A picture displayed in the viewer using the Show VIEWERCMD=open command is now properly rotated for its EXIF value if the option is turned on in Preferences.
