Version 7, Beta 9

The advanced search filtering now appears to be broken. I tried to download Beta 8, but the www.newsleecher/old appears to be broken as well, as it downloads Beta 9 again. Can someone please tell me how to get Beta 8 until Beta 9 bugs are fixed?

Thanks

Group Cache

Can someone please post how to move the group cache to a different drive? I did it years ago, but after having to reload my PC this weekend, I would like to move the cache again.

Thanks

Access Violation

I just started getting this today. I can't load any group without getting the error. I am using the latest Beta. I have attached the error log. Ideas??

Robert, Try to re-download the http://www.newsleecher.com/nlufc1301171.exe test release and check that out. I've *just* fixed a bug related to the height of the entries in the listview. Also note that you can compact the space between the listview entries by clicking the 'View Compacting" button in...

It's the same. It's legible, there is no blur, but it's just too small on my 2560x1600 screen to be confortable. I would really suggest to add back the font size setting in the next beta, I had to go back the previous version. I agree, add back the font size setting. I am about to download the prev...

Would you like the toolbox and 'minimize to tray' icons left aligned as well?
I would. Or, at least have the ability to customize the toolbar and place the icons where you want them, add remove items, etc.

I am not sure how you have checked on that but I can assure you that I have always used it and would love to continue to as I find it a valuable reminder. Can you use the new quick links feature as a replacement ? A long time ago you posted about looking into the issue of duplicate posts being list...

(With everyone complaining about the absence of "notes", I'm beginning to miss something that I never used.) It might seem like "everyone" misses the notes feature. But some time ago I checked to see how many actually use the feature, and the result was that less than 0.1% of the NewsLeecher users ...

Re: No menu--no alt- F9

Menu seems to be totally missing. Alt-F9 (Browser lookup) doesn't work. Forced to move back. I've been down this road before when he removed the feature by simply clicking on the icon to access your notes. It's an extremely useful feature when trying to keep up with frequent downloads, and should b...
