Directory Opus 12.3.7 (Beta)

Directory Opus 12.3.7 (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 Set DISABLEGLOBALHOTKEYS command to temporarily disable all system-wide hotkeys.
  • Each Lister now gets its own dedicated background file information thread (for e.g. extracting metadata from images, calculating labels, etc). Previously there was just one file info thread for the whole program. This should help improve performance with multiple Listers and also mitigate against the problem of the thread getting stuck (e.g. the recent problem with certain PDF files) which meant all file information and labels etc. stop working.
  • Fixed crash which could occur if you went to a directory within an archive, then went up to the archive's parent folder.
  • Improved metadata handling of .ai files.
