Directory Opus 12.20.4 (Beta)

Directory Opus 12.20.4 (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.


Changes since 12.20.3:

  • The FileType NEW command can now create directories by specifying directory as the file type to create. This lets you create multiple directories at once (e.g. FileType NEW=directory NEWCOUNT=10).
  • The FileType NEWNAME argument can now be used to specify a separate name that's used when the original name clashes, and to control where the incremental number is inserted. For example, FileType NEW=.txt NEWNAME="Text:Text Num %c" would use "Text" for the initial name, and then try "Text Num 1", "Text Num 2" etc. You can use %Nc to zero-pad the number to N digits (e.g. %3c to zero pad to three digits). The default behavior if a separate name isn't specified is still to append the incremental number in brackets.
  • The option to specify a single image (via name or wildcard) for folder thumbnails can now be used to allow up to 4 images per folder thumbnail that match the wildcard.
  • When dragging attachments from Outlook to an Opus Lister, Opus now detects the special 1/1/4501 timestamp that Outlook uses for some reason, and substitutes the current date and time instead.
  • If you turn on the Lister's Copy or Delete filter and then run a command which explicitly specifies a filter, the command will now use the filter it specifies without prompting. (Normal commands which don't specify a filter will still prompt you to choose or define one.)
  • If a copy/move operation uses a custom queue name this is now shown in the title bar of the progress dialog as described in the manual.
  • Fixed issue introduced in previous beta where folder tree branches would only fully populate when manually expanded.
  • Fixed issue introduced in previous beta which caused drive roots to be highlighted when viewing This PC with a filter that highlights recently modified folders.
