make a copy of a file
« on: September 28, 2012, 08:08:32 »
Is there a shortcut to make a copy of the file in the same directory. An equivalent of Ctrl+C followed by Ctrl+V (in windows explorer which creates a copy of the file in the same directory with a tag "Copy" added). Thanks.

But that changes the extension to .bak. I would like to keep the extension same and add a tag to the filename instead.

It will only be .bak if you press enter. you can change it. But if you want to automate it you can do it with script.

The easiest script would be to call Ctrl+C followed by Ctrl+V

( The ID command is found in Keyboard customization dialog )

Command Type : MultiScript
Code: [Select]
// Run Edit->Copy
MC.RunCmd ID=Core.1311

// Run Edit->Paste
MC.RunCmd ID=Core.1312
