I have just noticed something that some might find useful.
When copying multiple selection with shift+F5, we can add a suffix for each selected item:

What is interesting is that if you try to insert a string as a prefix, each character of the prefix will replace the existing character on the corresponding position in the existing file name. For example, "abc*.*" applied on "test.txt" will rename to "abct.txt".

Anyway, if an option of copying with renaming is desired, it should be implement via FC rename tool, which is more powerful (so instead of renaming the files in the active panel, the files with the new names will be copied (or moved) into the folder in inactive panel).

I don't really know if this works on the public release and if this is mentioned somewhere, but it's cool...

When you create a button on a toolbar, and insert an ampersand before a letter in the name of the button, ALT + that letter will become a hotkey for your button, unless there is already a defined hotkey in Freecommander for that combination of keys.
You will even see the letter underlined in the favorite toolbar.
