ATM, and I may have done something I shouldn't, however, when the option dialogue box comes up, the 'Copy selected objects to:' path is the same path of where the files are located.
Is this possible, or am I using it incorrectly?
*Matrix, try left Alt+F5 or open Pack dialog via TC main menu.
BTW all archivers get destination path in the same way so you should see wrong path while e.g. ZIPping too, and this path should be displayed in Pack dialog before CopyTree dialog is shown.
What did wrong was create a ctrl Z keyboard shortcut with internal command cm_PackFiles.
Obviously this does not operate as per alt F5 combo.
alt F5 is good but I like to even short the distance between keystrokes where ever I can.
Any thoughts as to how I can get working with internal command and alternative keyboard shortcut other than alt F5
You shouldn't use Ctrl in a shortcut for packing to target panel.
You can use Alt+Key shortcuts, e.g. you can assign both Alt+Z and Ctrl+Alt+Z for cm_PackFiles, and former will pack to target panel and latter to current one. It may overlap though with Alt+Letter quick search mode.

Just checked it - it is not Ctrl that is automatically checked when using Alt+F5 - it is Shift. If Shift+Alt+F5 is pressed then files are MOVED into the archive.Ah, that's it, Pack dialog checks if Ctrl is down and uses current panel instead of target one.
But if you make a keyboard remap of Ctrl+Anykey to cm_PackFiles then TC will place the archive in the source panel instead of in the target panel - so in that respect it is corect, but only if a keyboard remap is made and Ctrl is part of the remapping.
So I always have these 2 remmapings in my wincmd.ini file:
Code: Select all
[Shortcuts] CA+F5=cm_PackFiles CAS+F5=cm_PackFiles
26.10.04 Added: Ctrl+Alt+Shift+F5 (when assigned manually to cm_packfiles) opens pack dialog for moving to archive in same dir
29.10.02 Fixed: Ctrl+Alt+Click on F5 button didn't create archive in same dir
21.02.94 Move into new archive file with ALT+SHIFT+F5
Thank you for helping me figure it out. You time and effort is appreciated.
Works perfect. Where would we be without this program!!!!
