Regex-based Paired Folders

As backup and for standalone tests of various versions, setups, scripts, etc., I keep a collection of Opus installations on a USB drive.


To quickly have access to the master setup on my system disk, I set up Paired Folders with a regex match and replace.

All USB installations sit in the root of the drive in folders starting with either v12. or v13..

The paired folder condition is met when I travel into the DOPUS folder.


To open the corresponding folder of my active Opus installation, I can use

  • a command like
Go PATH={sourcepath|pair} NEWTAB=findexisting OPENINDUAL
  • or tap F6 once or twice to get into single mode and back to dual

  • or let a script do it for me automatically.
