Copy or move file to target so that when I {tab} over, the copied / moved file is focused in the list

Post by *9kvD38n6 »

If I copied / moved several files, focus might be put on the last file copied / moved, even though this really just makes sense when operating on a single file. The idea is that if the target folder has lots of files it can take a lot of scrolling to locate the file I just copied, e.g. when I want to copy its new path to the clipboard. Having an option (on the copy / move dialog?) to focus the new target file would be helpful in that case. But maybe it's already possible? Thanks.

I've been looking for something like this for a very long time, but it seems that it's not possible right now.

Maybe this has already been requested?

For copying you can use this button to find the copied file in the other panel:

Code: Select all

TOTALCMD#BAR#DATA
%COMMANDER_EXE% /A /O
/S /R=%P%N
WCMICONS.DLL,19
Mark file in opposite panel with same name as file under cursor


-1
To make the button:
1. Mark the green text above (click SELECT ALL).
2. Copy it to the ClipBoard (press Ctri+C).
3. Right click on TC's buttonbar and choose "Paste".
It will of course not be of any use for moved files :-(
