SUGGESTION - Keyboard shortcut for reset settings for Multi-Rename

#1 Post by stephen147 » 15.07.2019, 09:25

There's an option to start MR with defaults but generally, I have that disabled.

A keyboard shortcut for this would be useful.

Shift + R or Ctrl + R I suppose would suit.

Ctrl+R can't be used, it's already in use for "remove from the list", I think it's not a good shortcut for this either, Ctrl+R is using to refresh view, so the user may remove one or more items from the list by mistake, while he try to refresh view.

When you are using default settings often, you can use the option in menu > Options > Start with empty settings, or you can save the profile with default settings and option "Activate Profiles combo box first".

The shortcut would obviously be only in force when that dialog is the current (focused) window.

I said in the original post that I'm aware of the start with the default option.

This shortcut is in the Multi rename dialog, so it can't be used.

Of course, another shortcut could be used, but it should be free.

Oh sorry. I tried that and nothing happen just to check as I've remapped it to in FC to F5. That's why I thought CTRL+R was free. My bad.

IMO, I think F5 is a better shortcut for a refresh to stay in line with most apps.

F5 is the basic hotkey in all dual-panel file managers to copy item(s) to other panel, it's much better and faster than Ctrl+C, Tab, Ctrl+V, Tab, you can use option to auto-minimize dialog, use the queue, so u can copy files just using a single hotkey, but it's OT.

I've remapped F5 to refresh, F6 to move and F7 to copy and F8 to new folder.

It just feels more natural to me.

Hm.. it's on you, of course, but refresh is not really needed in FC, it has auto refresh.

Working off a NAS, even though it's 10GbE, I use these settings. So refreshing is less of an overhead.
