How to map "alt+drag&drop" to "Auto-rename target files" when overwriting?

Post by *Joeyy » 2018-10-01, 07:59 UTC

In default setting, "alt+drag&drop" is mapped to "cut" while "drag&drop" is "copy". I want to remap "alt+drag&drop" to "Auto-rename target files" when overwriting(like the screenshot below), any way to do this?

I've searched the "redefine hotkeys" setting, can't find the "Auto-rename target files" command.

If I understand your goal:

Next time you alt+drag&drop, in the dialog box set Overwrite options to 5. Ask-rename copied and select the pin icon on the left to retain the setting in the future.

Directly in the copy/move dialog. That is, if you didn't disable it in TC's options for Drag'n'Drop.

There are two settings you have to write together under [Configuration] section

Code: Select all

ShowCopyOptions=1
CopyOverwriteDefault=5
Note: This will affect all Copy/Move operation not just drag drop.

Thanks for the complete answer.

P.S. Ultra TC Editors is a must-have addon for TC for non-beginner users. Thanks for this, as well.

Thanks! But it seems that it doesn't work. I have copy the two settings you give to my wincmd.ini file, but when I drag&drop one file to a folder, it still prompts "overwrite dialog box" to let me choose which option( overwrite, overwrite all, ..., more options)

And back to the question, I want to map "alt+drag&drop" (alt key+mouse "drag&drop" ) to "Auto-rename target "option(in "more options" of "overwrite dialog box"). Please tell me step by step. Thanks again!

Did you paste these lines into the correct wincmd.ini section, named [Configuration]? Usually that's the first section.

In addition be sure you are editing the correct Wincmd.ini and restart TC after editing Wincmd.ini

Use Configuration Editor to edit Wincmd.ini for better result.

@Dalai@ts4242
Yes, I edited the correct Wincmd.ini and restart TC after editing Wincmd.ini. But now I have found the reason: I didn't check the "Drag&drop(copying files with mouse)" option in configuration dialog box.

Now the "5. Auto-rename copied" is pinned as default overwrite option in the dialog box, but can I just use "alt+drag&drop" to execute the process automatically without confirming the dialog box?

AFAIK no because there is no option (that I know of) to tune drag'n'drop behavior in such a way. But you might want to wait for Ghisler to respond, maybe there's some "hidden" option.
