Directory Opus 12.20.7 (Beta)

Directory Opus 12.20.7 (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.


Changes since 12.20.6:

  • The Rename command has a new NOIGNOREEXT argument which allows you to open the Rename dialog for interactive use while turning off the Ignore Extensions checkbox.
  • Folder name localization is now only enabled on certain drives, to prevent problems with Google Drive File Stream.
  • Possible fix for a crash encountered by a user (https://resource.dopus.com/t/finding-error-cause/35738).
  • Fixed background not rendering correctly if you had an auto-hide docked toolbar with a stretched background.
  • Fixed find by a specific file type not working properly in the simple Find mode.
  • The Preferences / File Displays / Mouse / Allow drag and drop into sub-folders option now applies when dragging over files (e.g. archives, executables) as well as folders.
  • When opening PowerShell via the CLI command, you can now use the new EXEC and TITLE arguments to specify the PowerShell executable to use (e.g. if you want PowerShell 7 instead of Windows PowerShell) and the window titlebar.
  • Added mitigation for problems caused if someone/something created a file named backup in /dopusdata/UserCommands.
  • Small change to the way the Script global script object is initialized, to hopefully make it accessible from python scripts.
  • The scripting StringTools object's Encode and Decode methods can now convert to and from raw UTF-16 data, including support for both Big Endian and Little Endian, and optional Byte Order Marks.
