Script / Re: Link to file in clipboard
« on: November 22, 2020, 17:19:39 »
That‘s a misunderstanding. I don‘t want to link to the clipboard but I want to link to the file at the place where I copied it with Ctrl+C to the clipboard. Very much like you can Ctrl+C in Windows Explorer and then can create a link via the right click menu. Unfortunately it seems, MC can‘t do this out of the box.

Script / Link to file in clipboard
« on: November 22, 2020, 13:56:06 »
I am trying to do the following thing. I copy a file with Ctrl+C (not necessarily in MC); then I navigate to a folder in MC, use a User Defined command (or something else) to create a lnk file to point to the file in the clipboard. But I don't know how to get the path to the file in the clipboard - GetClipboardText() doesn't do it. And I don't know how to create a lnk file pointing to that path.

While I am at it, I want to learn something...
How would I copy only the path name? I don't see a function for it. The only idea I have is to first get an array of all path/name, then of all names, then iterate through the arrays and use StrTrimRight() once to remove the names, then again to remove the \
Or I could use the StrRFind() command to find the first \ from the right and then trim the string with StrSub().
Any better ideas?

Thank you very much. I changed the script a little by using GetSelectedPaths() instead of GetSelectedFileNames() to get the combination of path/name and voilà: I have my first User Defined Command  8)

When I have a path "c:\Black and White" and copy it with Ctrl+P, MC copies it as it is, but I would like to have the spaces replaced with %20. Otherwise some programs don't recognize the complete path but stop after c:\Black. Is there a way to achieve this?
Best regards, Bernd

No idea anyone?

I already found those settings and thought they didn't work ;) But of course they do - for drag&drop operations within the filesystem.
What I do is dropping an attachment from an email in Outlook. This behaves differently and I always get the attached popup.
Is there a way around this?

When I drop a file from an email into a multicommander explorer window, I am always asked something like "Do you want to copy..." How can I avoid this extra question?
Best regards, Bernd

Support and Feedback / Creating Links
« on: April 03, 2020, 20:23:29 »
In Windows explorer, I very often use the function to create a link by dragging with the right button and then choosing "Create link". When I do this in MC, I get the error "creating links to files does not work yet". I read the answer from 2014 that Menu > Tools > File Links > Create Link.. does the trick. It does it alright but it takes a lot of clicks. I wonder why the function to create a shortcut file is not linked to the right drag menu when it is already in the code?

Support and Feedback / Icons on button bar

I am using MC 9.2 portable. It seems that the icons in the button bar don't fit the commands, see the attached screenshot.

That was easy  :) Now I have working favorites and a working Ctrl+v in the explorer windows. Thank you!
I also found: when I entered a directory through a UNC path (eg. pasting it with Ctrl+v), then Ctrl+p also returns the UNC notation. But when I entered the directory through a mount point (eg. I mounted it to drive O:), then Ctrl+p returns the mount point notation. Is there a way to always get the UNC notation when I am on a network drive?

Maybe the reason is that my favorite is a network path such as file:\\europe.mycompany.corp\winfs\mydirectory. With a local path such as C:\Program Files\Google\ it seems to work. Can I make the favorite function work with network path, because this is my 99% use case?
Also, it seems that Ctrl+v in the explorer window does not work with a network path.
Somewhat consistenty, Ctrl+p copies the local mount point of a network path instead of the network path itself. This doesn't help me when I want to send a path to collegue who most likely has a different mount point - or none at all.

I have several places where the windows explorer is launched instead of showing the directory in MC. Eg. when using favorites by using the favorites menu, a right click on the file path or by using Ctrl+1. I always get the favorite directory in a windows explorer instead of MC. What is the trick?
