799 - "Copy name without extension as text" ext. issue

#1 Post by Dreamer » 24.06.2019, 16:53

When using "Copy name without extension as text" to copy name of the folder with dot (e.g. aaa.bbbcccddd), only the first par is copied (e.g. aaa).

When using rename and option to select only file name without extension, the same folder name with dot is selected correctly.

FC 799 64-bit donor and 790a 32-bit public, Win 10 64-bit.

Confirmed for FC 799 64-bit donor .
It was never a good idea to make folder names with dots.
There are several places not only in FC which don't handle such names correctly.

I'm not creating such folders, but it's not possible to avoid such folders completely, for example, Windows is creating such folders too ($Recycle.Bin, Windows.old, msdownld.tmp, Microsoft.NET). Another group is a software and version (ABCD v1.23).

so why not using "copy name as text" when you select a folder?

Why use two separate buttons for one purpose, if the bug can be fixed?

Until such time, as a fix you can try this: Path Copy Copy

It doesn't come with the filename without extension as default so you have to add your own.

Select Copy Long name as the template and then use the settings below. This also allows a preview in the context menu shown below with an option in the preferences.

Regexp I used:

Code: Select all

^.+?([^\\]+)\.[^\.]+?$
Replace with:

Code: Select all

$1

Sceenshots made easy with ShareX.
