Directory Opus 12.17

Directory Opus is a simplest file manager, a utility program which presents lists of files and allows the user to perform actions of some kind on those files.

File managers are useful for moving files between folders, making backup copies of files, viewing pictures and playing sounds, running other utility programs on lists of files, deleting unwanted files and many other “housekeeping” tasks.

Directory Opus goes beyond the simple file manager metaphor, and offers you a complete replacement for Windows Explorer and many other utility programs for handling FTP, ZIP, viewing files and images, running slideshows and more.

It provides you with all this within a user-friendly and fully-configurable environment within which you can access and manage your important data with a minimum of effort. Harness the power of your computer like never before!

Directory Opus Features:

  • Single or dual file displays, with single or dual trees, make navigating and manipulating files a breeze
  • Folder tabs let you keep multiple folders open and switch quickly between them
  • Integrated viewer pane lets you preview many common image and document file formats
  • View and edit file metadata (EXIF, MP3, PDF, etc)
  • Sorting, grouping, filtering and searching has never been easier
  • Color code or rate your files and folders to make them easier to find
  • Batch renaming including the option for a fully scripted rename using metadata
  • Support for FTP, Zip, 7-Zip, RAR and many other archive formats
  • Built-in tools including synchronize, duplicate file finder, image converter and uploader and more
  • Print or export folder listings, copy file listings to the clipboard, calculate folder sizes
  • Queue multiple file copies for improved performance
  • Support for CD/DVD burning
  • Fully configurable user interface – toolbars, keyboard hotkeys and much more can be tailored to suit your needs
  • Efficient, multi-threaded, modern design

What’s New in Directory Opus 12:

Changes in Directory Opus 12.17:

  • Added command to tell the Lister viewer pane to open a specific file. e.g. Show VIEWPANECMD=”open,C:\My Image.png“.
  • Added Show VIEWPANECMD=clear to unload any current file and clear the viewer pane.
  • Prefs LAYOUTTHISLISTER has a new nopanels parameter which allows you to apply a layouts size, position or paths to the current window without applying its panels (viewer pane, dual file display, utility panel, etc.).
  • The new Show LOADALLTHUMBS command can be used to trigger the loading of all thumbnails in the current folder (equivalent to having the Preferences / File Display Modes / Thumbnails / Load all thumbnails in a folder automatically option turned on).
  • The ContextMenu SHOWCMDS command now displays the context menu commands in a listview rather than a plain text dialog.
    • The list can be sorted by the various columns and can also be filtered to make it easier to find a desired command.
    • Right-click an item in the list to create a command line in the clipboard¬†to run the command.
    • Fixed a problem which meant some context menu commands (e.g. those added by Dropbox Smart Sync) were inaccessible.
    • Added ContextMenu LABELRAW argument, allows the label to be provided via a raw argument which supports embedded quotes.
  • Added Wild.EscapeString script method to escape any wildcard characters in a string.
  • Fixed Show VIEWPANECMD buttons being disabled if no files were selected.
  • List Mode scrollbar handling improved when the window is not wide enough to fit a whole column of files.
  • Fixed script output panel scrollbars not always adjusting properly when they were resized. Also fixed flickering when moving the output panel splitter in the CLI dialog.
  • Added mitigation for issue which caused desktop and taskbar icons to flash repeatedly on at least one person’s systems, apparently due to SHCNE_ASSOCCHANGED events triggering themselves in a loop.
  • Fixed problem introduced by OneDrive mitigations that stopped thumbnails in Dropbox working.
  • Setting file descriptions using NTFS now works on long paths (while the path length is no longer limited as such, if the total path length is greater than 260 chars then the length of the filename you’re setting the description on is limited to approximately (236 – <temporary path length>) ).
  • Experimental support for high-resolution scrolling via mousewheels and trackpads. This has been added for the file display, the folder tree, and certain lists like the main category list in Preferences. People without high-res devices shouldn’t notice any difference.
  • Fix for delay when loading a layout, set to close existing Listers, if an existing Lister had an image loaded into the viewer pane.
  • Fix for theme import skipping images, icons or sounds if the config folders for them did not already exist.
  • Fixed codes like {file|noext|escwild} and {file|ext=*|escwild} removing/replacing the extension twice from names containing multiple dots.
  • Sped up rendering and scrolling of the file display, particularly when files are selected and vertical grid lines are in use.
  • Fix for opening a Folder Tab Group containing linked tabs, when the Lister already has linked tabs which aren’t being closed.
  • Improved detection of the file display’s current drive being removed when the folder tree is not in use. (Should trigger navigation up to This PC aka My Computer.)
  • Fixed label fonts/colors not always being applied to copied files until after a refresh (F5).
  • Print Folder now correctly shows all labels if the Label column is turned on in the format.
  • The old EXIF Lens Type field is now called Lens Model (as this is its correct name) and the Lens Make field has been added.
  • Updating the lens model in XMP data now works correctly.
  • The size shown for images in the standalone viewer’s status bar now uses automatic units rather than being fixed to KB.
  • Malformed zip files that contain a directory entry called ./ are now handled correctly.
  • Fixed problem in previous beta which stopped lensmodel (or lenstype) working through the scripting metadata interface.
  • Fixed Find-As-You-Type field’s pop-up command history when selecting a command using the mouse instead of the keyboard.
  • Fixed Print/Export Folder, where outputting both MD5 and SHA1 hashes would only output one of the two and now does both.
  • Print/Export Folder now always generates MD5 and SHA1 hashes when they are included in the output, regardless of file sizes and the max_md5_file_size setting.
  • The Select previous folder when going Up option now works correctly when you go up from inside an archive to the top level of a library.
  • The @if: command clause can now be used in a user command to test the value of user command arguments. The format is @if:&&ARG&&=value or @if:&&ARG&&!=value (the double-ampersands are necessary).
  • The Rename dialog now permits empty Old Name and New Name fields for the wildcard or regular expression, if other operations (e.g. Modify Capitalization) are being applied to the files. Previously, you could not click OK if both fields were blank, outside of the Find And Replace modes.
  • Improved the way FTP sites are used by Layouts, Folder Tab Groups, the Recent list, and similar objects which save lists of open paths. Details such as host name, port and username are no longer saved, and will be looked up via the FTP Address Book instead. This means you can make changes to an address book entry (as long as you do not move or rename the entry itself) without having to re-save the Layouts (etc.) which refer to it. Note, however, that this only works with Layouts (etc.) saved after this update has been installed.

    Directory Opus comes in two editions - Light and Pro. The Light edition is designed for home users who need a simple, high-performance file manager. It includes all the essential features of the Pro edition, without a lot of the more complex "power-user" functionality. The Pro edition is designed for power users who want to get the most out of their computer. With the same high-performance file management functions that are found in the Light edition, it expands upon the complexity and configurability to give you the ultimate file manager solution for Windows. If you're not sure which version is right for you, you can switch back and forth freely between Pro and Light during the 30 day evaluation period using the Licence Manager. If you'd like to give the Pro edition a better test, you can request a free 60 day evaluation. And if you buy the Light version, you can upgrade to Pro later for only the difference in price. http://www.gpsoft.com.au/program/pro-lite.html

    Evaluation period reset (until a new certificate is found) If you have been test-driving Directory Opus 10.0 and your 60-day evaluation has run out, you can request a new 60-day evaluation for Directory Opus 10.1 to see what's new. http://www.gpsoft.com.au/DScripts/evalrequest.asp

    10.02 is working really good still. Some cool updates, 1 making it easier to categorize. Very Good Software. I may like Xplorer2 a little better, but they are both real good. Also Check out Speed Commander

    The only way is to buy a certificate for $85.00 AUD & then post on here for all to enjoy.....or wait till a new one is found.

    Since Opus 9 was released in 2007, there have only been about 5 working certificates available for free (thanks to softexia & the up-loaders). GPSoftware just updated the Opus License Manger to omit (or blacklist) these keys when they are found on the web, blocking any use of current & future updates......so when you update to a newer version (or you let OPus phone home), the previously working certificate is blacklisted & OPus becomes unusable till a new certificate is installed. You can't even revert back to a previously working version of Opus without a format of you HDD.....:(
     
    Its best to stick to the older version, block it with your firewall, turn off AutoUpdate (see above) & wait until a new tested certificate is released
