MRT : overwrite option

Post by *nsp »

With MRT when we have collision, we have an option to auto rename but none to force overwriting.
Could it be possible to have additional choice in same dialog as rename to overwrite for each files !

This is not supported for a very specific reason: To always allow UNDO.

I can understand you point, but this is for the same reason i would like to get it. And as a user i can understand that undo is not available if any overwriting is done but let me take the choice and be as efficient as i deserve.
I have many files with bak/old/prev extension i would like to revert to original files to undo some wrong optimization done.

Perhaps: allow MRT to export a DSV (tab?) or user defined format to a file which you could then use in a third party program/script to do what you want e.g. rename with overwrite, so similar to Edit names but Save names

Code: Select all

original file1.txt	new file1000.bak
original file2.txt	new file2000.bak
F4MiniMenu - Open selected file(s) from TC in defined editor(s) - A (minimalistic) clone of F4Menu
Source at GitHub (AutoHotkey) - TC Forum thread. TCSyncComments (copy file comments)

Hi Hi5,

I currently use TCBL to rename those files from selection (just remove the extension)..
Having it in MRT can also be a integrated solution specially for Chinese chars.
