Problem using TCER (TC Edit Redirector)

Post by *sidefx88 » 2019-01-12, 20:54 UTC

Hi!

TCER works pretty well for me except in the search results window.

For example, I search for something and I get some .txt or .ini files. So, I press F4 to edit the file directly I get this error message:

A little window pops up (title of the window: "TC Edit Redirector"
Message: "No TC panel is focused".

I remember that I used to edit directly from the search results window by pressing F4 key, but now it doesn't work.

Is there some way to solve this? I want to keep using TCER and I will like to edit files directly from a search results panel.

Thanks!
I Love Total Commander!

F4 hasn't been supported long in the search. Apparently TCER was created before that, so it assumes that there is a regular file list.

Currently, TCER only works in the search results window (i.e. pressing F4 to edit a file) if you perform the search in a separate process (i.e. use Alt+Shift+F7).

Please see my corresponding question and the answer in this thread: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=27573

Apparently it is a problem known to the author of TCER: viewtopic.php?p=328995#p328995

If I launch the search window in a separate thread this problem is solved!

So, I will remap this keyboard shortcut as a temporary solution (from now on, Alt+F7 will launch Search in separate thread).

Thank you all, guys!
