Multiple dirs creation support in SHIFT+F7

Post by *wanderer » 2018-06-21, 17:15 UTC

I don't know if there will be time in this version for this, but it would be nice to have it so that SHIFT+F7 would be more complete. Relevant thread: https://www.ghisler.ch/board/viewtopic.php?p=342815#342815. Posting it here to be more visible as a wish.

REQ:
Selecting multiple folders in a panel and pressing SHIFT+F7 should add them in the dialog's textbox as "dir1|dir2|dir3" and pressing OK should create multiple dirs. This already exists for simple F7, would be nice to have for SHIFT+F7 too.

This already exists for simple F7
Does it? - I cannot make multiple selected dir/file names turn up in the F7 dialog - only the name under the cursor is displayed when I press F7.

But I support the suggestion for both F7 and Shift+F7

Sorry, should have phrased it in a more clear way. Multiple dirs creation exists in a manual way only, if you add by hand multiple dirs in the dialog, separated by pipe. Since this exists though, getting all selected dirs from the panel and putting them in the textbox of the dialog separated with pipes should not be difficult.

PS: The same should stand for SHIFT+F7 of course...
