I have just noticed something that some might find useful.
When copying multiple selection with shift+F5, we can add a suffix for each selected item:

What is interesting is that if you try to insert a string as a prefix, each character of the prefix will replace the existing character on the corresponding position in the existing file name. For example, "abc*.*" applied on "test.txt" will rename to "abct.txt".

Anyway, if an option of copying with renaming is desired, it should be implement via FC rename tool, which is more powerful (so instead of renaming the files in the active panel, the files with the new names will be copied (or moved) into the folder in inactive panel).

I don't really know if this works on the public release and if this is mentioned somewhere, but it's cool...

When you create a button on a toolbar, and insert an ampersand before a letter in the name of the button, ALT + that letter will become a hotkey for your button, unless there is already a defined hotkey in Freecommander for that combination of keys.
You will even see the letter underlined in the favorite toolbar.

Thanks for the info related to my post yesterday, whether it was for me or not. I think I will start reading the text file. Appreciate :-)

I have been using FC for many years and this post is one of the most informative I have seen - Well done everyone who has contributed so far and I hope there are more to come.

It would be nice if a complete list of all configuration settings could be supplied with the name, INI location, action, GUI interface changeable (True/False) and Dependents/Dependencies.

Thoughts!!
