Directory Opus 13.4.3 (Beta)

To download, use Help -> Check for Program Updates (assuming you have checking for beta versions enabled in Preferences), or download manually.

  • Added optional different colors for the currently sorted column header (via Preferences / Colors and Fonts / Directory Opus Colors / Column Headers)

  • The standalone viewer can be made always on-top again. The window menu (click the titlebar icon, or push Alt+Space) has a "Keep On Top" toggle. You can also get a toggle button for use on the viewer toolbar/menus via Customize > Commands > Viewer > Keep On Top.

    Note that opening Customize or Preferences will reset the viewer to normal, to ensure the dialogs don't open behind it. The fullscreen viewer also disables the command, as it's inherently on-top when active. Viewers save their on-top state when closed, restoring it when the next one is open. Separate state is saved for normal and lister-linked viewers.

  • In scripting, the list of shell properties returned by FSUtil.GetShellPropertyList() now includes all properties in the system, rather than just those marked as "column". This makes things like System.PerceivedType available. Note that the list will be a lot bigger now.

    • The second argument to the function can now take the "v" flag which filters out those properties not marked as "viewable". This will give you the same list as is shown in Explorer's column chooser UI (and in the Shell Properties page in Preferences)

    • Each property returned has a number of flags which indicate its type: multiplevalues, isinnate, isgroup, cangroupby, canstackby, istreeproperty, includeinfulltextquery, isviewable, isqueryable, canbepurged, searchrawvalue, dontcoerceemptystrings, alwaysinsupplementalstore, issystemproperty

  • Preferences / Columns / Evaluator Columns now has a context menu for items in the column list. The default columns (Image Bytes and Modified (Simple)) can be reset to their defaults this way.

  • Qualifier keys are now passed through to commands run from the header context menu

  • Fixed folder tree highlight path getting its color from the wrong tab with dual trees

  • The Evaluator Columns test function in Preferences now provides the "operation" value (set to "display") so that scripts that use this value can be tested

  • Evaluation filtering on the label column should now be more reliable

  • Evaluation filters which use a script column which uses image metadata now work

  • Context menu on shell folders like This PC in the breadcrumbs field dropdown now works

  • If you clicked a file display group (selecting everything in it) and then deleted from there, the file display would be left without any item having focus. This is now fixed.

  • Fixed delayed reaction of right/bottom status bar during lasso selection at times.

  • Fixed issue with synchronize filters incorrectly filtering folders rather than files

  • Fixed synchronize not working on FTP (problem introduced in 13.3.1)

  • Possible fix for "Crash frequently while use script to manage my files with DOpus13.4"

  • Possible for for crash ID 218

  • Possible fix for crash 219
