GAAlex, please try avoiding excessive window size when making screenshots.

BTW what tools do you use to create GIFs like this?

Named Folders Lite

Version 1.03
  • Support for directly entering a subdirectory of a named folder with "cd:a/b\c\d". Here "a/b" is the name of the named folder and "\c\d" is a subdirectory to go to, determined as everything starting from the first backslash ("\"). E.g., assume that "a/b" points to "C:\WINDOWS". Then "cd:a/b\system32" opens "C:\WINDOWS\System32". This feature is disabled by default. If you want to use it, go to the plugin's options and activate the "Allow path suffix" option.
  • Support for paths starting with "\\", such as "\\server\share" or "\\.\pipe". For some reason, FAR will happily accept these paths on command line with a "CD \\path" command, but refuses to set panel directory to them - so I had to write an ugly hack which simulates a macro. For this reason, the support is rather shaky and requires that the command line be empty.
  • Optional support for plugin-based directories. Generally, with plugins you want to use the already existing functionality of linking directly to the plugin's panel (using Plugin ID, parameter and host file), but in some cases it may be better to use a plugin-starting command line. In that case, you can create a named folder without a link to plugin and provide a command line for directory: "edit:<for /?". This allows you to create shortcuts to non-panel functionality of a plugin. This feature is disabled by default. If you want to use it, go to the plugin's options and activate the "Allow plugin calls" option. Be wary of creating loops as these are not being detected and will eventually crash FAR Manager.
  • Enhanced the Plugin.Call("...", "OPEN") function to allow jumping to a specified named folder. Simply add the named folder to the end of the path. Example: Plugin.Call("...", "OPEN", "sys/win"), where "sys" is a directory of named folders and "win" is a named folder.
  • Fuzzy search for a named folder ("cd:a" where you have no "a" named folder, but perhaps have "a123") is now optional and can be set in plugin's options. Default value is enabled, consistent with plugin's behavior so far.
  • Search for a named folder can now ignore directories. That is, "cd:a" will now also find "b\a" or even "b\a123" (with the standard fuzzy search). This feature is disabled by default but can be enabled in the options.
  • Added Ukrainian translation.
  • Added a selection of samples (by q726xan5on) which demonstrates the use of some of the more advanced features of Named Folders Lite, particularly this version's support for plugin-based directories.
  • Added English help file.
  • When editing an item from the panel without changing its name, the item got deleted.
  • Fixed a bug where creating a new named folder from the panel and giving it an already-existing name could lead to the old value being overwritten regardless of the answer to the confirmation dialog (more specifically, answering "No" would overwrite the value and then reopen the new/edit dialog).

Impossible. Alias is required for the plugin to function - it is the identifier of the bookmark.
