As a former user of another tool, real portable file type associations and icons is the main thing I miss since I switched to DO.
Portable file type associations and icons means overriding system registry settings in both cases and use/display user defined settings.
It's the the only thing that keeps me from getting a life time license.
Is it on your to-do list?
Changes to file types on the Events tab (e.g. "Left double-click") are stored in your Opus configuration files and thus portable.
Commands added to the Context Menu tab are as well, provided they are Opus-specific commands. (Since if you want to add commands that also work outside of Opus, they have to be in the registry, else nothing but Opus will know about them. But Opus-specific commands can and are stored in the Opus config.)
Icons can be overridden for file extensions (or specific files, folders, or other patterns/filters) under Preferences / Favorites and Recent / File and Folder Labels, and the changes are stored in your config. (Make sure the icons specified can be found in the same place, of course.)
Labels and filters seems to work great, but I'm having a problem setting file type associations. Example, I have a file type group called Notepad++ ".txt .ini etc", but adding ".rtf" file type to this group has no effect, ".rtf" files still open in WordPad.
Is it possible to override system associations? I don't want to go through file types one by one, I want to group them.
It works, I must have done something wrong.
This is the best file manager I have tried so far, I'm considering a life time license. Is there a portable version to run from my HD? I know I can purchase an extra USB export addon, but I can't have a USB dangling out of my laptop all the time, and my machine is frozen.
I don't mind paying extra.
Thanks for the help guys.
