Download and install

To install the plugin, download the latest distribution and unzip it into the %FARPROFILE% directory.

  • the plugin itself - in the Plugins directory (both x86 and x64 versions),
  • a sample macro command - in the Macros\scripts directory.

A macro command is required for invoking the plugin with a hotkey. The default one is Ctrl+G. You can create additional macro commands to invoke the plugin with different settings; see help for details.

Alternatively you may download and update the plugin via PlugRing.
