Rename autoselects name only (not extension)

I recently built a new PC with Windows Vista at home. The Vista version of explorer has a small but nifty enhancement -- when you rename a file the filename is selected by default, but the extension (e.g. ".xls") is not.

I'm seeing the issue with 2007.10a (portable). In my case I did a shift-drag between panes. (local source, network dest) I saw the briefest flicker of the dialog. Happily, I was able to alt-tab the dialog back to the foreground. It only happens intermittently.

That's what the "UNC" menu entries do.

Plugin paths don't recognize variables

The plugin dialog doesn't let you specify %FcSrcDrive% as the drive. I hand-edited the FreeCommander.ini file to change the path, but when I restarted FC my plugins failed to load. The variable is not being interpolated.

I'm running FreeCommander Portable v2007.10 on WinXP, SP2.

Ah, that does seem to be most of what I was after. The discoverability is poor, though. Users don't expect buttons to have their own context menu. It should be replaced by standard menu opened via a [v] drop-button (Like the window-splitting button on the View toolbar.)

More copy path options

Copy path options should include DOS-style (back-slashes), Unix-style (forward-slashes), and UNC paths. You should also be able to copy the full path including filename instead of just the enclosing directory.

Recognize back/forward mouse events

The default configuration for my MS Intellimouse has buttons mapped to "back" and "forward" but FreeCommander doesn't recognize them.

[For now I've worked around this by enabling application-specific settings and mapping the buttons to Alt-Left and Alt-Right.]

Agreed. Please keep standard platform shortcuts wherever possible! I hit F5 expecting a refresh and immediately thought "Uh-oh. What the #$%^ did I just do?"

Portable file associations

For FreeCommander Portable (at least) it would be useful to be able to set file associations to use other portable programs to edit files and to keep them with the program (not the computer).

e.g. See the Xenon File Manager at PortableApps.com: http://portableapps.com/node/9242
