682: HELP doesn't display content??

Is it something I've done, or does HELP not work in Donor x64 682? Downloaded the latest XE Help English file, and unzipped it into \Program Files. It's dated 1/8/2015, so it's obviously very current. But it doesn't seem to work. All I can see is the list of topics. No content appears. What have I d...

Re: FC-Copy or FC-Move Problem

If you are still using build 650, please try installing the latest public beta version 665.

Does the problem still exist when using version 665?

Re: how to compare files in flat view

yeah, I know there is a myriad FREE comparison tools like winmerge and freefilesync just to mention some. For file by file binary comparison I usually use a FREE hex editor. What you cannot do with the tools above nor with your suggestion (afaik) is a flat view file (CRC) comparison. I don't think ...

Re: how to compare files in flat view

Just in passing, I mention that I don't use FCXE for "folder/file compare" functionality. I realize that there are many ways to skin a cat, and this cat in particular where many 3rd-party products do folder/file compares with assorted presentation designs. In my own experience I prefer the sophistic...

Re: Adding Custom Buttons to Splitter Bar

Now that I see what a "splitter" is and that it can hold additional buttons, I don't see why I should waste additional screen space to put some buttons on this "splitter" I find the Splitter bar very useful for these buttons (at least): Copy, Move and Compare. There is no need to use it if you don'...

Re: Adding Custom Buttons to Splitter Bar

P.S. - how did you get your "standard" toolbar button on the same row as the Menu bar items when you showed your own split-horizontal view?

For me, these occupy two separate rows.

Re: Adding Custom Buttons to Splitter Bar

I said: Tools -> Customize toolbars... AHA! Didn't process your English earlier. Now I see. Thank you for this insight. Don't know why the word "splitter" doesn't show up in Help -> search providing useful information. That would have allowed me to answer my own questions. Some irrelevant and vague...

Re: Adding Custom Buttons to Splitter Bar

I don't see anything like this in FCXE. There is no Tools -> Settings tab or options for "spitter" that I can find. Where/how is this configured at all in FCXE? Also, again... left/right presentation in your example. Sure that is acceptable for 2-panes (i.e. without Tree), but I much prefer always l...

Re: Adding Custom Buttons to Splitter Bar

The HELP doesn't mention "splitter bar", although I've seen that phrase used by others.

I have no idea what area on the UI is called the "splitter bar". Can you please post a screenshot showing it, or maybe just describe where it is and how it is obtained for view?

thanks.

Re: Switch F10 dual/one panel...Folder tree remains hidden

I'm using 668 under Win7 x64. Same "one tree per panel" and "left-left" configuration. However I use over/under presentation (i.e. "split horizontal" with tree/detail panes on top and tree/detail panes on bottom) rather than left/right presentation. Just View -> Split Horizontal (i.e. CTRL+H) and tr...

Can't understand why more don't use "split horizontal"?

Many threads have discussions implying that FC/FCXE users are using a left/right presentation (with panels on left and ride sides of the window) rather than a top/bottom presentation (with over/under panels). The latter is achieved by a simple View -> Split Horizontal (CTRL+H) command. The over/unde...

Re: 3 Issues I'd like to see fixed

[*] When there is a file with a long name, the active window automatically expand the "name" column, causing all the other columns to shift on the right (out of the screen if the name is very long). If you reshrink the name column, it gets expanded again at the first sort/change done in that folder...

Re: 667 - copy/move from MTP to PC does not set "A" attribut

Good question. Turns out, the "A" attribute DOES NOT get set even when using Windows Explorer in a drag/drop from the MTP-connected phone to a PC target folder! So assuming FCXE is using Explorer capability functions for MTP support, I guess the culprit appears to be Windows Explorer rather than FCX...

Re: 667 - Copy from MTP (iPhone 5s) will remove File Extensi

Don't Apple environments have no extension or at least in the folder you're copying from on the iPhone?

Look at the SOURCE in your screenshot... no extension there to begin with.
