864 - Multi rename - "Activate profiles combo box first" is broken

#1 Post by Dreamer » 04.02.2022, 19:50

To reproduce:
- use default settings
- select 2 files
- press F2
- in multi rename window use options "Start with last used settings" and "Activate profiles combo box first"
- create 2 test profiles
- close multi rename window
- select 2 files
- press F2
- multi rename window is opened
- press left or right arrow key
= profiles combo box is not activated, just cursor is over it

When using the option "Start with empty settings", it works good, it's possible to switch the profiles with arrow keys left, right, up, down, but the combo box is not opened, I think it was opened before.

864 donor 64-bit, Windows 10 21H1 64-bit.

In 865 it's possible to switch the profiles, but they are not activated.

Enter key automatically rename files, without activating the profile.

It's impossible to activate the profile that way.

In previous versions it was activated automatically, after switching with the arrow keys.

In 866 it doesn't work good.

Enter key activate the profile, but clicking the Enter again doesn't work to rename, have to press Tab and Enter.

In previous versions it was possible just to switch profile with arrows - profile was activated and click Enter once to rename and close dialog.

In 879 it is still not fixed.

New steps to reproduce:
To reproduce:
- use default settings
- select 2 files
- press F2
- in multi rename window use options "Start with last used settings" and "Activate profiles combo box first"
- create 2 test profiles
- check the option "Close dialog after rename"
- close multi rename window
- select 2 files
- press F2
- multi rename window is opened
- for Pattern - File name use e.g. "[n][c]"
- press Enter
- files are renamed, window is closed
- now select any 2 files
- press F2
- multi rename window is opened
- last use pattern "[n][c]" is in the File name field, correct
- "Rename" button is focused - blue border, looks active
- press Enter
= files are NOT renamed

- select 2 files
- press F2
- multi rename window is opened
- press left or right arrow key to activate any profile
- press Enter
- profile IS activated, File name field is changed, correct
- "Rename" button is focused - blue border, looks active
- press Enter
= files are NOT renamed

Workaround, press Tab 3 times and then press Enter.

This is quite annoying, when renaming multiple group of files, if it would be working correctly, it would be just 2 steps - F2+Enter to rename files using last used options. - It was working good before.
