File Buddy 11 - Alpha 6

Fixes for user reported problems


What’s new in alpha-6

Alpha-6 is a small release that fixes a few problems reported by one of my users. I’d like to give a shout out to Bill, who sent me an email with some bug reports and request for which features he would like to see prioritized. Since File Buddy is huge, it’s not always easy to decide what to work on next, so feedback is really nice to help set the direction.

Bug Fixes

  • List Window drag-and-drop now supports dropping multiple files at the same time

List Window

  • List Window Toolbar Actions is now present. Supported actions:
    • Case-conversion: UPPER CASE, lower case, Title Case
    • Clear Creator Code
    • Clear Type Code
  • List Window add/remove hot keys are now wired up

What’s next

At the request of Bill, among others, I’m going to be working on the renaming actions for the List and Info windows. The UIs for those dialogs are pretty complex, with lots of options and interactions, so I’ll be releasing it piecemeal as I get more things working. I’m also going to update the find window to allow result to be added to the front list window. I’d like to get the “find in front list window” as well, but no promises.

Hopefully, I can have something working on the renaming dialogs by next week, but it might take a couple weeks.
