|0002261||Far Manager||Folder Shortcuts||public||2013-01-18 06:35||2013-04-25 13:59|
|Fixed in Version||3.0|
|Summary||0002261: Expand environment variables in folder shortcuts menu|
When I fill in (edit) a path in a foldershortcut and no Title then the path is automatically shown in normal foldershortcut window.
Using %farhome% as a foldershortcut shows me "%farhome%". But this should be the real path like "C:\TOOLS\FAR...".
Can you please fix that?
|Steps To Reproduce||see above.|
|Additional Information||Thank you.|
|Tags||No tags attached.|
Oh, I forgot this:
Of course I mean all environment variables. Not only "%farhome%".
||'shows %farhome%' it is absolutly correct if goes to 'C:\TOOLS\FAR\...'|
yes, it is correct and works. this is not the point. i mean that it would be more practical to see the real path in the foldershortcut-popup and not the variable.
If someone like to see the name of the environment var then he can write it into the title.
And vice versa -- if someone like to see the real path he can write it into the title.
I want to see (and edit) in the edit field exactly what I wrote there last time.
'vice versa' doesn't work if you're using different environment vars in different locations (portable aspect). that's the problem. it will always be "%farhome%" and you never see the real path. but it would be more helpful to see the real path - especially in different locations.
and on the other side: it is no problem to write "%farhome%" in title.
>I want to see (and edit) in the edit field exactly what I wrote there last time.
You are right about edit fields.
But may be it would be better to expand variable in Folder Shorcuts menu.
farman, please give more specific names to issues.
Wow! The issue sounds very much better now.
Sorry, but somehow I couldn't see the trees in the forest.
It works. Thank you very much.
One thing I'm not sure if it is wanted:
If you hide both panels (Ctrl-O) and pick a foldershortcut from the Folder Shorcuts menu then it will not be executed. It is only copied to Commandline.
Althoguh this doesn't disturb me, it's a kind of nonuniformed. Or is there a special reason for this other way of behaviour?
||I checked code, it's a feature: folder shortuts works in such way in any edit line, and command line is a edit line too.|
From the point of view of a programer this is ok. From users view this nonuniformed behaviour of the same key isn't really easy to understand.
But I think it will be ok.
At least F1 should be changed:
If RightCtrl-0..9 pressed in edit line, it inserts the shortcut path into the line.
If RightCtrl-0..9 pressed in a dialog edit line, it inserts the shortcut path into the line.
If you're working in Panel Mode and the panels are off, it inserts the shortcut path into the command line.
Will there be any chance to get the Folder Shortcut menu working like Farmenu? I mean Hotkeys for static Folders and the possibility to move entries via CtrlUp/Down?
You can add static hotkeys yourself by inserting '&' anywhere in item name.
Great. Thank you very much.
Inserting "&" is a nice trick. Although it would be nicer and more unique to have an extra field in "Folder Shortcut - Edit" like in Menu.
This trick and CtrlUp/Down should be added to "Folder Shortcut - F1" too.
