[Wishlist] Display all dialog boxes on the monitor where the Settings window is positioned

In current version (v9.0.x), "Settings" and "Add/Edit Favorite" windows position and size are remembered and saved in the ini file. The first time they are displayed at the center of main monitor (if system has multiple monitors). But other dialog boxes ("Add Favorite Type", "Options" and secondary dialog boxes) are always positioned at the center of the main monitor.

The request is to open these windows at the center of the monitor where is located the main "Settings" window. This will also apply to the first time the "Add/Edit Favorite" window is open (after that its position will be remembered as now).

FYI, the position of the "Settings" and "Add/Edit Favorite" and "Move favorite" (and "Move favorites") is remembered to allow the display of long submenu paths in the "Settings" list or in the other dialog boxes "Menu" drop down lists. In my view, it is not necessary to remember the position and size of the other dialog boxes.

You can discuss this request in this thread.



[Wishlist] Offer install and update with installer/updater Win Sparkle

From John H.

Win Sparkle

Video: Quick Example

Notes - JL (2018-07-31):

AutoHotkey wrapper! WinSparkle with AHK

About WinSparle... From what I can see in this video, I don't see much difference with what is already coded inside QAP: check for update at launch of on demand, direct link to download the setup or portable file (see screen capture), and the rest is the execution of the setup file (note: this is not available for beta version but these beta versions are for a small private group of users). The only difference I see is that WinSparke saves the step of downloading and running the setup file. Am I missing something?


[Wishlist] Add a dynamic menu built from Directory Opus favorites

From Anjan: I have a lot of favourites in Dopus and find it very daunting to move all of them to QAP.
I would like to have a easy way to import the favourites to QAP. Could you please add this feature or help me with a workaround.

My reply: I could write a script to import DOpus favorites. But my preference would be to add a "QAP Feature" to show a menu dynamically build from DOpus favorites list. (similar to Total Commander Directory Hotlist).


[Wishlist] Support target path in Total Commander Directory Hotlist

Suggestion from Horst:
There is one function missing for the TC dir menu. TC allows to also set the target path for an entry but QAP only sets the source path of such entries.

Could you confirm the exact behavior of this feature? Source in left pane and target in right pane?

No, Source in whatever the current active pane is, Target on the other side.
But I guess most users including me would also accept Source on left and Target on right side.


[Wishlist] Reload QuickAccessPopup.ini when it is changed without having to reload the app

Suggested by Sébastien on Folders Popup website:

I noticed that the FolderPopup.ini is only read one time (at startup time). If I manually edit the file, I have to close and restart FolderPopup to see my changes.

I would be really usefull to add a feature that verify is FolderPopup.ini has changed before showing the application. If the file has changed (check file size and modified date), then reload the configuration.

This will allow the user to edit FolderPopup.ini on the fly using a script (a logon script for example).


My reply: This is a good idea that would be implemented in QAP.


2018-07-31 (JL)

This would need to be an option because some users would prefer to decide when to reload QAP.



[Wishlist] Track recent items in QAP, in addition to system Recent items

In Folders Popup, the Recent Folders menu present the x most recent folders found in the Windows virtual folder “Recent items” (C:/Users/[username]/AppData/Roaming/Microsoft/Windows/Recent). See this discussion for more info.

In QAP, this menu could also memorize the most recent folders accessed using QAP, regardless of Window's list. Also, I saw in Folder Menu (if I remember well) that this list also included Current Folders (folders actualy open in Windows Explorer). See this item.
