Dont abort/clear new filename on rename of a single file

#1 Post by pOpY » 23.07.2019, 08:01

Dear marek.

It would be nice when Freecommander does'nt loose the new file name on an rename operation.

Current behaviour (also Explorer does it this way):
  • * mark one file
    * press F2 -> rename
    * Enter an really long name and some characters which are invalid like "?"
    * Freecommander brings an popup error -> invalid folder-/file name: ....
    * You have to enter all again
It would be nice if th operation fails that freecommander get just one step back (Edit field with the entered new filename).

Keep up the good work
thx

https://freecommander.com/fchelpxe/en/Rename.html

If the option "Use dialog window for rename" is checked, on activating the rename process the dialog window "Rename" is opened, where the file/folder can be renamed.

In the last release 800 there is new option in the freecommnader.ini

RenameResolveIllegalChars=1

A value of 1 will replace all illegal characters with an underscore.
