Few queries on Directory Opus 12 new features.
I use Directory Opus 10.
I want something similar to file-sizes with duration field. I have selected the "Calculate the folder sizes automatically for all local and network drives" in Folders/Options under Settings/Preferences. I have also placed the icon for "Calculate the byte sizes for selected folders" icon on the toolbar which I click when required to recalculate the folder sizes.
For each file, the size shows the size of the file and for each folder, the size shows total size of all the files in the folder (including sub-folders). Status bar has the ability to display the total size of selected files as also total size of all the files/folders for the folder shown in the tab.
For each audio/video file, I can see the duration of that file. However, if my audio/video files are in folders and sub-folders, I cannot see anything in duration. I want to see total duration of all audio/video files for the folder in question in the duration field on the row for the folder.
In status bar, I want a sum total of all durations for not only audio video files in that folder but including all folders/sub folders and files for the folder shown in the tab.
b) Is it possible to view the total duration of audio files separately from all video files ? In short, is it possible to know how many audio files are available on the drive / folders with total duration of same separately from how many video files are there on the drive / folders with total duration ?
c) There was a problem with both Directory Opus 10 and Directory Opus 11 in that the file icons disappeared. Please read the support thread in the attachment. It is also available at
resource.dopus.com/viewtopic.ph ... ead#unread
d) Are there any new features in Search function ? e.g. Does it allow content searching by indexing file contents or something that makes the searches faster.
e) Does it allow searching using
- NEAR or LIKE operators where I can find two words that are n words apart from each other
e.g. Directory NEAR/10 Features should find the Directory Opus 12 New Features as Features is within 10 words of Directory
- for words with ? or * i.e. wildcards used. e.g. ??AR should find NEAR and DEAR both or *AR* should find all words with AR embedded anywhere in the word etc. - searching for contents within compressed and zip or rar files etc.
I do like the search function available even in Directory Opus 10 as it is very powerful with various fields available for searching along with sub-clauses which makes it very powerful. The only thing is that is pretty slow when content search is used.
Hence, I will like to know if there is anything in Directory Opus 12 which makes it even better.
Thanking in advance,
