Socks v5 proxy

Hi, new user here... I need to go through a socks5 proxy, is it possible/planned to add it in Options / Connection / "Manual Proxy Configuration" ?

what can I do?

I try again, this time asking for advices...
"Apps - Check For Updates" stopped working, for example when I try to update XnView I get this reply:

"Unable to download the file. This could be due to a proxy or network issue or the hosting server not permitting downloads from your location. File: http://portableapps.com/redirect/?s=p&a=XnViewPortable&d=pa&f=XnViewPort...
"

I did not have this problem until some point in the past months.

I'm behind a corporate proxy, so I thought that bypassing it through "socks" could be a solution but I must add now that if I paste into chrome browser the link above, I successfully download the file, so I don't understand where the problem lies. My OS is win10 with no administrative privileges, in PA platform my "Options - Connection" is set to "Automatic".
