Some of these formats are supported with technology based on transparent use of the external engines already installed on the user computer
(now the application can use CorelDRAW 10-X8-2017, Corel DESIGNER 12-X7-2017,
Corel WordPerfect 12-X8, Ghostscript v7+, and
MS Office 2003+ Document Imaging for these purposes).
Using OLE, the application can extract and show amazing thumbnails and previews for
DOC, RTF, WRI, XLS,
XLT, XLW, PPT, POT,
and PPS files (requires Microsoft Office 2000+), DOCM,
DOCX, XLSB, XLSM, XLSX,
XLTM, XLTX, PPTM, PPTX,
PPSM, PPSX, POTM, and POTX
files (requires MS Office 2007+), VSD, VSS, and
VST files (requires Microsoft Visio 2000+), VDX,
VSX, and VTX files (requires MS Visio 2007+),
XAR and WEB files (requires Xara X /
Xara Xtreme / Xara Extreme Pro).
Except it, the application is capable to receive full texts from majority of these files.
The program provides instant preview of any plain text files (TXT, INI,
BAT, CPP, PHP, any at your choice).
It supports the majority of the text encodings for plain text (including UTF-8, UTF-16BE, UTF-32LE, UTF-32BE, Latin1, GB2312, etc.),
provides synchronous scrolling of the text in plural text windows, the multi-source copying of the texts from several files by one click, etc.
ST Thumbnails provides full support of Windows 7+ Libraries and Homegroup namespaces (including creating and removing libraries, adding folders to a library,
removing folders from a library, monitoring changes in all open Libraries and Homegroup folders at the same time, and other file operations for Libraries and Homegroup items).
Also the program is fully integrated with Windows Shell, it allows to display Shell context menu (like Windows Explorer) for all Windows Namespace objects, and use Shell extensions
(in this version x32 only) to show thumbnails for many unsupported formats (i.e. use Shell extensions like Windows Explorer to display thumbnails for formats unsupported itself).
The application provides unique Quick Search feature. This component provides the search for keywords, notes, other metadata in XMP, IPTC,
Exif, Adobe IRB metadata sets, and some vendor-specific metadata blocks, just as on entire file text for most of Corel files
(CDR v7-X8-2017, CDT v7-X8-2017, Corel PAT v7-X8-2017, DES v10-X7-2017, also all versions of CSL
and CLK files), Serif DrawPlus (DPP, DPX),
Serif PagePlus (PPP, PPX, SMF, GALLERY),
Serif PhotoPlus (SPP, SBR, PAT) and Serif WebPlus
(WPP, WPX) files, MDI, MS Office 2000+, MS Visio 2000+, HTML, plain text,
and some other file types. Besides, the search is possible and on offline (non-mounted) CD/DVD disks too.
The program provides batch export of thumbnails for all supported formats from the application database, and batch conversion for all supported
formats (the application can save exported images in BMP (Windows and OS/2), JPEG,
JPEG 2000, GIF, PNG
and TIFF). Besides, any 3rd party programs can provide batch thumbnails export too, using the application
command-line thumbnails export options.
The application provides various means for files classification: color labels, ratings, bookmarks, tags, and user keywords.
Quick Search can be used for instant displaying of the files lists classified by one or several criteria.
The application shows a version, type, keywords, notes, size, and other file info (e.g. file fonts, linked files, overprint info, etc.
for AI, AIT,
CDR v7-X8-2017, CDT v7-X8-2017, Corel PAT v7-X8-2017,
CSL, CLK, and INDD CS+ files)
in infotips and in separate window. The program allows to rotate, scale and mirroring the thumbnails. The application provides displaying
all pages for multipage files, Ferris Wheel scroll mode, and smooth thumbnails scrolling with controled speed.
Built-in animation engine allows to display animation for plural files in the application thumbnails window directly
(in this release for animated GIF files only). The application supports optical character
recognition (OCR) for MDI files (requires MS Office 2003+ Document
Imaging), it allows to copy parameters of the selected files to the clipboard for use by other applications.
The application has internal one-file database, supports own offline file system (My Images Space),
provides Thumbnail View for files locating on remote WebDav drives and Icon View for files locating on FTP servers,
provides background image processing, powerful navigation means (History, Favorites, Clipboard Watcher, etc.), fast previews and so on.
V1.5 is integrated with Network Installations Management. This technology together with Check for Update service allow easy install,
register, and update for plural app copies in corporate networks.
The application also supports multiuser and multiplatform solutions based on MS Terminal Server.
