Directory Opus 12.5.1

Directory Opus 12.5.1 (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.



  • Fix for crashes or double entries for items when refreshing the folder display, opening new tabs, or renaming files.
  • Fixed crash which could sometimes occur with certain command sequences in a button. (e.g. CreateFolder, then open the folder in the dual display.)
  • The Filter Bar now automatically disables partial matching when a file type group is being matched. For example, grp:Archives will no longer match example.rar.jpg, even if partial matching is enabled.

Directory Opus 12.5

Directory Opus 12.5 is now available as a free update for all Directory Opus 12 users.

(Do not install this if you are still using Opus 11 or earlier, unless you want to upgrade to Opus 12.)


12.5 contains all the changes from the 12.4.x betas. It also contains the following new changes:

  • Fixed problem introduced in 12.4 where you could not use AltGr+' -- actually AltGr + (the key bottom-left of Return, depending on keymap) -- to type special characters in some locales, as it was interpreted as the Ctrl+' which now copies the name from the file above.
  • It's now possible to make a link to a drive root, e.g. Copy MAKELINK=softlink E:\
  • In Script dialogs, combo edit controls can now have their editable text set via Control.label.
  • The script method Control.GetItemByLabel was incorrectly documented as GetItemByName. Both versions work now.
  • The script Blob.ToArray and ToVBArray methods now take optional "from" and "size" parameters, similar to CopyFrom.
