Buttons for the Rename / New folder / New file dialogs

#1 Post by Dreamer » 09.07.2016, 13:52

This request is an addition / alternative to the Paste and go request. I'm not sure if it's possible to add the standard buttons, or even buttons with icons to dialogs, but those dialogs are from FC and there are also custom options there, so perhaps it is possible...

Please add these buttons to Rename, New folder, and New file dialogs (if possible):

First part, standard "edit" buttons:

- Home (to move cursor)
- End (to move cursor)
- Copy (for text)
- Select all (for text)
- Insert the current date
- Insert the current date and time
- Insert [exif_taken] (for image files)
- Insert custom text *
- Paste (for text)

Second part, single click options, perform the action and go - Enter:

- Copy and go (for text)
- Insert the current date and go
- Insert the current date and time and go
- Insert [exif_taken] and go (for image files)
- Insert custom text and go *
- Paste and go (for text)

* Perhaps the profiles from Multi rename could be used, button with submenu with the list of all profiles, so the main button will add the first item from profiles. This might be usefull if we don't need to open multi rename dialog just for a single file, so just click rename and this button to quickly rename the file, so 2 clicks instead of several clicks and typing - for example, if we want to retain the current file and add the current date, space between, it would look like this:

Code: Select all

[n] [d]
[n] [exif_taken]
Some of these buttons would be useful also for the standard toolbars.

It might be too complicated, so perhaps another option "hide all buttons" would help, or/and customizable toolbar for these dialogs, like the Address bar.

You can use the workaround, alternative program, HotkeyP, I'm using the mouse shortcut side button 4 + right button to copy and 4 + left button to "paste and go", it's working in all programs, not just in FC. The program has many features and the mouse / keyboard shortcuts are fully customizable.
