Listary


#1

I am using Listary 5 with Directory Opus 12, and I have to say that they work seamlessly together.
It even knows all my opened tabs in the Currently Opened Folders section.

This is the simple General settings I used in Listary to make it work with Directory Opus.

Path: C:\Program Files\GPSoftware\Directory Opus\dopus.exe
Parameter: "%1"


Cannot get Explorer Replacement to work with Calibre
Script to keep last folder path in retrievable
Explorer replacement for other windows

AFAIK there is one major drawback when comparing to Everything (Voidtools): it closes the interface, so one needs to re-open it each time and (needcase) retype the previous search string.
For example: one searches on "Opus" - Listary finds all hits, one then open a folder, Listary is gone.
Regretfully it does not show modified date either. If files- or folder names look very much identical, the modified sort may help you to select the latest version.

I am using both. Whilst Listary is very nice, I still prefer Everything because of the above.

I use Everything also. But I use it as a Search Engine.
Listary is much more than that. I don't even use search in Listary.
I turned "Find As You Type" off.

I love the way you can drill down through folders. Even through the Open, Save, Save As dialog.


#4

I use Listary for quick searches and Windows Search (inside Opus) for more complicated ones. The "Open/save file dialogs" integration is nice, but does not always work (sometimes is not Listary's fault, as some programs use some kind of non-standard dialog).

Listary did not work for me as launcher, so I moved to Keypirinha. Before that I was using Executor, but the developer stopped supporting it.

I gave up on setting favorites and projects. I usually move my folder around and then I would need to upgrade the new path every time. In Opus I set a small number of aliases that are enough for me. The "find as you type" saves my time when these don't.

Trying Everything now. Each of these tools has something that I like, but none has it all.
