Copy / Move between panes without dialog box
« on: April 28, 2013, 08:01:30 »
How does one Copy / Move Files between panes skipping the dialog box. Its the only thing i am missing since i started using multicommander.
I was thinking a hotkey like for eg. ctrl + f4 (in windows explorer mode) and ctrl+f6 for move would be nice like in freecommander.  Its an advantage of dual pane file manager to quickly copy files with one hotkey when you don't need any of the advanced options the copy/move dialog box provides, imo.

Thanks.

You may create user command

Code: [Select]
MC.Explorer.Copy NODIALOG
or

Code: [Select]
MC.Explorer.Move NODIALOG
It will copy selected items from the active panel to the opposite one without dialog.

Or you may use MultiScript to create something more advanced.

Thanks Jungle for answering.
I created this user command for copy and assigned hotkey [ctrl+shift+c]. Works nicely.  :)
I wonder if these commands should be there in MC out of the box with easier hotkeys assigned. I guess lot of people would be needing this. Great workaround though !

Both forms have their advantages, I would like to know how to make -dialog on left click & +dialog on right click... ;)

I know it is a lot of work but I'd like to learn more on multi-script, are there any more of the in-depth resources yet?

Thanks Mathias, I have not had time to fully read it all yet.
I think I need to find some samples so that I can extrapolate how to deploy some of these features.
I usually learn best when I actually want to do something specific, & then find the holes in my understanding.
