Support and Feedback / Re: Rename with F2 according to folder sort
« on: April 09, 2020, 23:40:15 »
Thanks. I think the problem I'm having is that since what I input is prepended or appended to the existing filenames it will retain whatever naming scheme was originally used, and so retain the original sort order of the files.

Is there a way to use the F2 function so that what I input will replace existing filenames and add incremental numbers?

So, for example, I can input "ter001" and it will replace the filename "sdg4589"? Instead what it does is produce the filename "ter001sdg4589".

I don't like Multirename and would like to use the F2 function instead, so I'm trying to figure out a way to make it work for me.

When I want to rename files I use Multi Commander's Multirename option. I use this instead of F2 because Multirename will rename the files in the order in which they're sorted in the folder, such as by size, name, date, et cetera.

But I would prefer to use F2 to rename files. Is there a way to get F2 to rename files in the order in which they reside in the folder? Or perhaps someone knows of a script I could use in conjunction with User Defined Commands?

Support and Feedback / Image Preview
« on: February 01, 2020, 00:49:14 »
There are instances where I have so many images in a folder that I don't want to turn on thumbnail view (to not take up resources) and I don't want to cycle through endless images to find the one I want. I'd like to merely hover my pointer on the filename and get a pop-up preview of the image.

This program works for Internet Explorer (I haven't tried it), but you have to pay for the full version.

Is there some script or program I can use in conjunction with Multicommander to provide image previews?

EDIT: I should have searched before posting, as I see this has been addressed before here and here.

You say, "A built in picture viewer and configuration of external viewers is something that is very high up on the todo list."

But I suppose I could create a user-defined command to open an external viewer, but I'd prefer if a large thumbnail could appear upon hovering on the filename with the pointer.

Support and Feedback / Webp as Conversion Format

Under Picture Tools>Convert Format is it possible to manually add support for Webp? Or would it be better to create a user defined command?

Support and Feedback / Thumbnails Only for Images
« on: June 08, 2019, 04:53:20 »
Is there a setting to make it so that thumbnails are only used for images (and maybe videos), but not for anything else? I like my image thumbnails to be the maximum 256x256, but I don't want every file and folder to have those dimensions.

Script / Re: Rename file script
« on: June 29, 2018, 20:10:36 »
Thanks for posting this script. I lack expertise with custom commands/scripts, but here's how I got it to work, for others like myself who lack experience:

1. Copy the code in SpiroC's post.
2. In the Menu click Configuration, the User Defined Commands.
3. Click the Create New Command button and give the command a name.
4. In the Command Type dropdown choose Multi-Script.
5. Paste the code in the box.
6. Click on Hotkey and choose a hotkey to run the script.
7. Click Save and Close

To use it highlight one or multiple files and then use the hotkey. It will rename the files by prepending the current date to the filename(s).

An improvement would be if a dialog box could pop up and I could customize the name, and have the option of completely replacing the filename.

You're correct. I just checked my display settings and I had them on 150%. I changed it back to 100% and now the default dialog box size is a good size and I'm able to resize as well.

I'm able to resize it in that fashion vertically, but not horizontally. It takes up over half the screen. It might be because you have a lot of options packed in there. In some dialog boxes you can click a button named advanced, and it will enlarge the dialog box for more options. So the default dialog box size is kept small. I think that would be a useful addition to the Multirename dialog box.

I took a couple snips as examples:

Not resized.

Resized (only vertically).

Is there a way to resize the Multirename dialog box? And also to make it pop up in a certain area of the screen? I'd like the dialog box to be smaller.

Support and Feedback / Re: Single Pane view
« on: March 01, 2018, 17:16:43 »
Multi Commander always starts in double pane mode, but you can change it to single pane by pressing alt+F11. Mathias, I've been doing this for years, every day, and haven't had any problems. I never work in double pane mode. There might even be a script that could be written to make it single pane upon startup.

Support and Feedback / Run User Defined Command on Selected Files
« on: March 01, 2018, 17:09:12 »
Is it possible to run a user defined command only on selected files, and on no other files in a folder?

I have an external command:

Code: [Select]
C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe /c wsl /mnt/c/Users/kl/Documents/Scripts/
This command calls the Windows shell, and then the Windows Ubuntu subsystem and then the bash script. I'd like to be able to run this script only on selected files and not on all files in the folder.

Support and Feedback / Custom Command to Run in Git Bash
« on: November 26, 2016, 17:27:30 »
I want to create a custom command to run the program G'Mic within Git Bash on selected images.


Code: [Select]
gmic *jpg -gimp_montage 4,\""V(H(0,1),H(2,V(3,4)))"\",1,1.0,0,5,0,0,0,255,0,0,0,0,0 -o 0000.jpg
This command takes jpg images, from which a montage of the jpgs is created.

This is what I have:

Code: [Select]
Group: MC
Function: Run
Options/Parameters: ADMIN

Command Type: Custom Commands


MC.Run CMD="gmic *jpg -gimp_montage 4,\""V(H(0,1),H(2,V(3,4)))"\",1,1.0,0,5,0,0,0,255,0,0,0,0,0 -o 0000.jpg"

When I run this command on selected jpgs I see the Windows command shell quickly open and close and not perform the requested action. This is because the command doesn't work in Windows command shell. It needs to run in Git Bash, which I have installed and have confirmed works with this command.

I assume I need to tell MultiCommander to run this command in Git Bash. But how to do it? And will the resulting montage be placed in the folder of the source images?

My Git Bash path:
Code: [Select]
C:\Program Files (x86)\Git\bin\sh.exe
