When some items selected and double click at another item, all selected items will be opened. Therefore i made a multiscript which hotkey i everitime forget.
Code: [Select]
MC.Run CMD="${focusfilepath}" SHELLhttp://forum.multicommander.com/forum/index.php/topic,1673.0.html

Hoping you can make that the double click will be like this multiscript and the enter-key just open all selected files. Maybe 7.3 is just the step for this change.

Using the rename dialog I had some issues adding a space to a regex with a selection group.   I had a regex for bracketing dates, (19[0-9][0-9])|($1) & I wanted to add a space but "s are added in a strange way e.g.

(19[0-9][0-9])| ($1)

becomes

(19[0-9][0-9])|" "($1)"

Manual adjustment via ... dialog won't persist.   ???

I'm no expert on RegEx.  MC is using the build in regex engine in C++,

But don't you have to escape special characters like " with \" or something.

Hi Ulf.

I am unclear as to what the expressions is doing...

(19[0-9][0-9])|($1)  translates as:

Find AND capture ["19" followed by 2 digits] OR [the first match found]

Is that correct?

Hi AJB, the regex finds any 4 digit value starting with 19 (a year in this case).
If that is found the 1st instance is called to be renamed with ()s;  1923 = (1923)
(&The | is from the Rename dialog text entry field.   :P :))

Hi Mathias, yep \ is normally used but I can't pass that to the output field.
[& I also discovered that with the width of the rename window there is no horizontal scrolling for loooooong names, vertical scrolling is OK for multiple rename entries over-filling the window whitespace.]
The issue is with MR adding """s to a <space> which is normally OK e.g. _|" ", but with a regex it adds several automatically & I cannot edit it out as it won't let me...  ::) ???

Hi Ulf.

I see!  I was translating the whole line as a regular RegEx :)  I didn't realise the "|" was part of the MC Rename process (I've never used it).

No wonder I got confused (well, the syntax and my great age) ;)

I'm a Perl RegEx man myself, so the syntax is slightly different anyway.  But you would still need to escape the "(" and ")" for any flavour of RegEx.

Have you tried:

  ...| \($1\)

(just a WAG) ?

The following pattern seems to work (in 7.1)
Code: [Select]
(19[0-9][0-9])|" ($1)"
Windows XP Pro SP3 Rus / Windows 7 x64 Ent Rus | MC v7.1.0 b2347 Portable

Hi Jungle - that is what I expected to happen but I got extra " added when I submitted the string to the dialog.
Your solution does show me where I was 'wrong'.  Normally a <space> needs to have " ", so I added them, giving me the result in the attached jpg.
However had I not manually typed in the string in the ... form, MR would have given me the format you have that works. I didn't expect that format could work given the restraints of the " "s.  Assumed it would try a literal " ($1)" as the name string.    :-[ :-\ 


Hi AJB - you would be right about the escapes but \ will not enter the equation as a character that the rename form allows for output.  (Cannot output a regex from a regex, does that ever work in the ancient mists of Perl?)
I guess you were thinking something like (?:what|the|hell) :)
In the case of the MultiRename dialog you will see the format can be only:-  regex in|acceptable folder-file name out
MR is a very useful tool for renaming, & I use it quite a bit in my MC toy-box.  ;)

So I guess that is panic over!   :D

Dont forgot the RegEx checkbox if you are using regex there

 :)  Yes I later noticed that in the screenshot I hadn't ticked the box, but it was only for that pic I'd omitted it. 
Normally I remember it needs doing  ;D
