Never seen that happen.

Might be that you accidently written something in the dialog so it ended up in some sub/parent folder..
Depends on how you started the copy operation. there are multiple way to do that in mc.

All file operation are logged in fileoperation log (unless you turned that off)
type ":golog" in command line field. and look in the *-FileOperations.log that handled the copy and you see where the files was written to

If you hold shift while click you select an range from where you previous focus are until where you clicked
Holding ctrl and you select separate items.

And if you have commander style setup you just toggle selection right mouse button.. And you can configure how to select a lot in settings.

You should be able to match everything inside the from the [ to the end using RegEx

Core Settings > FileSystem Tab
Under Tweaking at the bottom there is a setting named
"Auto refresh file list when detecting external changes" 

Set this to "No auto refresh"

You can also turn of the settings "Refresh tabs when application focus is returned to mc" that is located 2 steps up.

and if you just want to "unwatch a folder" from the folder change monitoring system.. you can use the command
list all   ":FolderMonitor list"
Remove ":FolderMonitor remove <folder>"

Is Option 2 really needed ? if you enter many delimiters . dont you always want it to split at the position where any of the delimiters are found ? (option 1 ?)

Actually, there may also be 3 option :) The first char of the delimiter param would be the delimiter (";" in the code above). If not found, then the second one etc. So:
- 1st from the input string disregarding delimiters order
- 1st from the input string regarding delimiters order
- 1st from the delimiter string disregarding input string index

Yes I Know but I find the other case strange. and wonder how useful it really is. adding something just because it can be added is not time well spent.
looking around at split function in other places I find the "Split where the first of ANY of the specified delimiters is found.."  But I can't find any uses for the other options.

Code: [Select]
@var $res = CopyFile("d:\\temp\\abc.txt", "d:\\temp\\1.txt", "NODIALOG") should work.. something must have broken.. I will investigate and see If I can fix that

I want to copy some file to the same dir with a new name (manually specified, no autorename). But CopyFile function accepts only path as a target param.

Is it somehow possible to achieve the goal? If no, maybe enhance CopyFile with an additional param or implement a new function CloneFile?

That should be able to do that is Script..
So you mean if you set target name like  CopyFile ("C:\NewFile.txt" , C:\MyFile.txt" , "NODIALOG, OVERWRITE_ALL" );
It does not work ?

1) If you have files / folders selected an open MultiRename Window, the selected files are already in the MultiRename window..
Or do you mean some other rename window ?

2)That is actually a limited in Windows..  If you select many files and press enter.. the list of all of them are sent to windows with the command "open" and Windows has a limited on how many it allows to be opened.
I think there is a registry settings for this will change that value.

Put you can create a script for it. that will take a selected file and then run Execute on each of them.. sending X calls to windows. for each selected files

I will check if that is possible. Add it to the list

I think I rather add a new split function for it

StrSplitAny($str , ";|." );

Is Option 2 really needed ? if you enter many delimiters . dont you always want it to split at the position where any of the delimiters are found ? (option 1 ?)

So......  I'm guessing no non-overlapping SaR using script or MS rename tools is possible then...  :(

I don't know.

I don't understand what you are doing. So I can't setup a test to test it.

Most keys are customizable in the main app. But it is too much work to make every key in every dialog customizable..

Ctrl+F.. and Ctrl+N or only in the Favorites Windows.
alt+backspace open the favorites window

right click in the favorites windows and selection option. there you can select that paths should be shown instead of namees

If you copy using copy and paste (Ctrl+C / Ctrl+V) Windows copy process is used.

I will check if it is possible to keep date/time when it rebuild the zip

Also the filename is not important., You can rename the script file if you want. the Guid used is the one set inside the .udc file
then you can easier identify what script is what.

By the way, I forgot to mention - the right-click menu doesn't appear - when I right-click on anything, it (text) turns red.

I think you selected Commander Styled Mouse/Keyb setup when MC started at first startup.

Menu > Configuration > Quick Loon'n'Feel Setup

If you have not done any customizations.. then select Windows Explorer Style. else select Customize and only swap mouse and maybe keyb to Windows Explorer Style

There is really not much different between how WI10 and 11 works.. 11 is 10.1 with new taskbar.

That is more likely to be a MC settings thing.

Menu > Help > Backup and restore
from there you can backup all settings files from your Win10 machine and then do restore on the Win11 machine..
OR just copy the files from the config folder ( Menu > Help > Goto > Config Folder )


The glitch is the Row.  Seconds Row=4 should have been 5. and All the other should jump one step..

        <Text Column="0" Row="4" ColSpan="2" Text="${MCPictureProp.img_dimensions}" />
        <Text Column="0" Row="5" ColSpan="2" Text="${MCPictureProp.fnum} ${MCPictureProp.exposure} ${MCPictureProp.exposurebias}" />

        <Text Column="0" Row="6" Text="File date" />
        <Text Column="1" Row="6" Text="${}" />

        <Text Column="0" Row="7" Text="Picture date"/>
        <Text Column="1" Row="7" Text="${}" HideRowIfEmpty="True"/>

        <Text Column="0" Row="8" Text="${@,MCPictureProp.model}"/>
        <Text Column="1" Row="8" Text="${MCPictureProp.model}" HideRowIfEmpty="True"/>

Have you tried enabling Passive Mode..You are running in PORT mode and if you are behind FW/router that require the router to forward ports..
If you are behind a router it is easier to run in passive mode,, try enabling passive mode in the bookmark for the site

might be something with MC.. FTP is tricky since no ftp server if the same.. they all work different.
However without a log or something that gives more information it is hard to say what is the problem.
It can be so many different things.

Any error in FTP log ?

problem with FTP is that all FTP Server works different. And some FTP server need special handling to work since they are not following the FTP standard.

Hmm They do not change by them self without you telling it to
It depends on what setup you selected..  In commander styled setup you got F5 for copy.. and F5 for Refresh in Windows Explorer Styled setup

Menu > Configuration > Quick look'n'Feel setup
There you can quickly change to some settings. however it can overwrite some custom settings you done.. If you only want to change key.. then select customize and only select to change keyboard to command styled. then apply and restart app

everything can.. it just a matter of time
Currently my time to spend on MC is limited, and there are other things at the top of the list I want to do first
