Lister: Autodetect files as multimedia on startup // "load bitmaps as graphics at startup" (language LNG translator)

Post by *aviasd »

Hi,
I cannot figure this one out:
I've installed a couple of lister plugins (Pdf and Docx)
My lister is set to autodetect in "Display at startup" but whenever I view a file , the detected mode for these files is binary and I keep having to switch to multimedia by pressing "4".
What's the way to configure the lister (and quick view) to always prefer multimedia mode ?
(I've also tried moving them to the top of the list but that does not change anything)
Thanks :)

I Figured it out
For anyone else encountering the issue: I've checked: load bitmap image as graphics at startup in the lister configuration, and now it's working properly.
This setting's name is really confusing and IMO it should be renamed.
The way I found it is by using the help which states this option differently:
"Use plugins or load bitmaps as graphics at startup"

Both English versions (internal and in LNG file) are the same starting from TC 7.55, but some LNG files in other languages (downloaded separately) aren't updated. It's string 5855, you can update it on your own.

Seems to be the case for the official WCMD_SK.LNG

String 5855 is very short in WCMD_HEB.LNG

Code: Select all

5855="äøàä úîåðåú áäúçìä"
So I doubt this string is updated with the "Use plugins or " part.

Some translators seem to not use "Compare by content" option when updating LNG files so they only add translation for new strings and don't update changed ones.

It is actually since TC 7.51 - and in the instructions to the translators (new751.txt ) Ghisler writes:
// This string was changed: The text "Use plugins or" was added, because plugins
// will not be used either if you uncheck this option
5855="Use plugins or load bitmaps as &graphics at startup"

It actually was an english lng file that was set I guess since TC 6. When I changed to the official english the string shows as stated

I stand corrected :oops::
15.03.10 Added: Changed version number from 7.51 to 7.55 to reflect the many added features
So TC vent from TC 7.51b8 to TC 7.55b9

The first version of difres751.zip with the language changes for translators is dated 10.02.10 - that is the time of the release of 7.51b4
