Feature request: Copy with paths.

Post by Janus » Wed Sep 19, 2018 1:08 am

Something I use quite often with ztree is the ability to copy files including their paths.
It has two modes, one is complete path relative to the root, the second is relative to a branch point.

I would very much like to have the ability to select a group of files.
Then be able to copy them with path either relative to their root, or from their common branching point.

Not sure if this is feasible, but it would be nice.

Tools | Options | General -> Keyboard ---> Show commands containing: copy clip

File | Copy path to clipboard (F5, I use)
File | Copy full name to clipboard (F6, I use)
File | Copy name to clipboard (Alt+N, I use)

I am aware of that, but that is not what I am talking about.
Apparently I was not a clear or specific as I had thought.

C:\a\1\b/file.txt
C:\b\2\c/file.txt
C:\c\3\d/file.txt
C:\destination\

Copy with paths would allow me to search for file.txt, select them all, then copy them so they end like this when I paste them into the destination.

C:\destination\a\1\b\file.txt
C:\destination\b\2\c\file.txt
C:\destination\c\3\d\file.txt

If I had meant file paths alone I would have indicated that.
I believed that copy with paths would be clear.
I hope this is specific enough this time.

Out of curiosity: what would be the common branching point of th following files (all valid names in Everything):

C:\a\1\b/file.txt
X:\b\2\c/file.txt
\\server\share\c\3\d/file.txt
\\server2\share\c\3\d/file.txt
\\?\C:\d\3\e\file.txt

(there are more possibilities)

@tuska: Brilliant!
I had no idea that option existed. Thanks!


BTW: You can simplify this even further:
OLD:
%1\%2

NEW:
D:\destination\%2

That's brilliant!
Btw, I didn't know that this function existed until today either :)
