under Option - Quick paste. There you can change to another theme which comes with the program.
However to create your own looks/theme, you can go to the folder Ditto\Themes\ You'll find some xml files. Each of them is 1 theme. In there you can change the value and select which colars. You'll need to play a bit around till it looks they way you want it to be. Give it a new xml name and then in the Ditto program select this one as Theme as described above.

smaragdus on 2017-02-05 17:32

Thank you again for the detailed information you provided! Somehow I failed to notice "Theme" menu in "Quick Paste".
Do you know whether the old themes packed with Ditto version are compatible with Ditto version

Well, i found the solution myself. Don't know if this option is new or not but its the first time i noticed. So, when dragging files into another window or tab in Q-dir, at the bottom it says "Start drop in new process"! (and recycle bin and email aswell) ha! and just drop it on this button.. nothing will freez! magic :) Thanks anyway folks.
Q-dir is great.

penthe on 2016-12-30 15:28

The Q-Dir 64 installer 6.47 is not installing, last time there was also a problem with the 64 installer. They should be checking first before releasing the installer.

starshakur on 2018-05-05 15:17

Can't recommend Q-Dir to anyone, freezes while copying, Q-Dir windows turns black, crashes. Windows 10 64-Bit, tried Q-Dir 32-Bit & 64-Bit, tried the PortableApps version, all of them buggy as hell. That*s probably the reason why the developer frequently updates it. 2 years back Mithril wrote about something that's still happening.

Time to start looking for an alternative, till then i'll use Windows Explorer.

Who are you? Like if gho the main guy behind DxWnd move over to Github, only then I would consider it an "official" repo, but other wise it seems pretty unofficial to me when a random person sets one up.

What are some of your contributions to DxWnd? Why didn't gho set it up instead?

refack on 2017-04-22 14:53

@Special, I'm just helping gho with the "mechanics" of the mirror. He owns and approves the mirror.

Midas on 2017-07-04 10:04

Tip: no help files are included in recent builds, so it is advised you grab v2_04_10 from Sourceforge which has the most up to date files.

BTW, the GitHub repository mentioned above by refack is currently empty.

Am I msising something? The Devs changelog always says "Some fix". lol.

aazard on 2020-11-26 00:54

Tablacus Explorer is very powerful >>> in the way of plugins (see for yourself)

It can be a simple, but very well made, file manager or mid-weight IDE to replace gVIM/Geany (seriously)

If you want a file manager, explorer commander or QDir are very nice, fast & light with good features

BUT if your a "power user"..YOU WANT THIS APP

It's the best image viewer I've ever used. Awesome UI and hotkeys, fast; everything I wanted in an image viewer. Near perfect.

One does not need the BAT file ("ClipAngelPortable.bat") to start ClipAngel in portable mode, just run the EXE with this parameter- "ClipAngel.exe /p".

The name of the program is not Clip Angel but ClipAngel as it can be seen in program's main window and in "About" window.

Program's icon does not imply an angel but an alien.

tormozit on 2017-05-14 16:46

Yes, "ClipAngel" is more correct than "Clip Angel". Over time, I will try to replace "Clip Angel" with "ClipAngel" everywhere I can.

I'd advise you to try to download from the homepage and check any executables through before posting any scant reports...
