Directory Opus 12.3.6 (beta)

Directory Opus 12.3.6 (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.



  • Added an Edit menu to the Customize / Keys page, allowing copy/cut/paste of hotkeys. You can also right-click on individual hotkeys in the list to copy them the clipboard.
  • In FlatView mode you can now drag files from sub-folders to the "root" folder by dropping on the file display background, rather than having to drag to the last node of the breadcrumbs bar or folder tab.
  • Dragging files from nested sub-folders in FlatView mode to the parent folder now bypasses the prompt and defaults to copying all files to the same folder (since "recreate" in this case makes no sense anyway).
  • Some improvements relating to disconnected network drives:
    • Drive buttons no longer read the volume name for network drives when displaying a tooltip, which could cause a lock up if the network drive was offline (the tooltip will show the UNC path instead of the volume name).
    • Drop-down drive lists are now updated on a background thread which should prevent the Lister locking up when mapped network drives are unavailable.
    • Made some changes to fix Lister lockups when switching between tabs that point to disconnected network drives
  • In Rename, you can now use {parent|noext} and {parentbase|noext} to get the parent folder name without file extension (useful if the parent is an archive file).
  • The Copy command's CLEARREADONLY argument is now used for all copy sources, not just CDs/DVDs. Note that the Preferences option still only applies when copying from CDs.
  • Added DOpus.Filters script property to provide access to global filter settings.
  • When the Preferences / Viewer / Mouse Buttons / Click left/right edges to go to previous/next picture option is on the next/previous mouse cursors are now shown when the mouse is outside of the image (previously they would only be shown with the mouse over the image even if a click would actually trigger the action). Also made these cursors less obtrusive.
  • Fixed a Flat View / Grouped sorting error.
  • Fixed appearance of non-functional "Share with" context menu item on the File menu.
  • Fixed problem importing some filetype settings from filetype export files.
  • Fixed problem with recent PDF change (previous beta) that could cause infinite loop with certain PDF files.
  • Fixed toolbar layout error where a horizontal toolbar could overwrite a vertical one in some situations.
