Very useful plugin. I needed better Insert to select files, here is:

Code: Select all

Macro {
  key="Ins";
  area="Dialog";
  description="Select current file/folder without leaving search panel";
  condition=function() return Dlg.Id=="3731617B-3037-6363-632D-353933332D34" end;
  action=function()
    if Panel.Item(0,APanel.CurPos,8) then Panel.Select(0,0,1) else Panel.Select(0,1,1) end
    Keys("CtrlEnter")
  end
}
Plugin works even in plugin panel type (arclite, netbox...), but doesn't work with True Branch plugin - can you solve it?

I need more info please.
What version of Far Manager are you using? What version of TrueBranch?

As far as I can see on the Plugring page TrueBranch development was stopped over a year ago, while Far3 was still maturing its API. In fact, though Far3 support is claimed by plugin I was not able to start Far3 version of the plugin on the latest stable version of Far.

The only way I was able to run TrueBranch with the current Far3 is on its 'ansi' Far1 version (the one with buggy eng translation file), and it looks like FastFind Enhanced works fine with it.

Thank you, Shmuel.

The thing is, it is working, but not exactly as a user expecting. TrueBranch's panel items don't show full path (unless you have this option turned ON), but contain full path in them nevertheless. So, when FastFind Enhaced comes in, it matches input with the full path (both visible and hidden parts). Or did you mean some other problem, KlepetoX?

I will look into it and will make it possible to have "ignore paths" option one way or another in the next version of FFE.

Hello Acrebic, option "ignore paths" should be sufficient for this purpose. In the meantime I skipped FFE if panel format is Branch
(if APanel.Format=="Branch" then...)
