Directory Opus 12.12.4 (Beta)

Directory Opus 12.12.4 (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.



  • The Set COLUMNS command now accepts the same special codes as Set FORMAT (e.g. Set COLUMNS=!folder) to load the columns from a special format without affecting anything else about the current folder format.
  • You can now use @if:Prefs STYLE=xyz to make buttons conditional on the last style which was loaded, e.g. to cycle styles with a single button. Individual buttons which load styles now also highlight when their style is active (i.e. the last style which was loaded).
  • Scripting: Listers now have a style property, which names the last style (if any) applied to them.
  • Fixed a problem with the metadata cache introduced in the previous beta that could cause metadata to not update in some cases.
  • DOS-mode functions that are intended to be synchronous (i.e. not return until the DOS process has ended) now are.
