Can i save selection state?

can i save selection state in file or to smth else and load this selection in next time? i think it's very useful. thanks in advance.

PS and thanks to GPS for best FM in this World. it's not a joke)

Don't think so, but you can do other things like send the currently selected files to an Opus file collection - or just save the names of the files to a text file - with or without the full path info.

how this work? sounds good)

thank you.

PS yeah, copy names to txt was the first of my ideas)

Well, it's not very elegant, but you can try the following:

<?xml version="1.0"?> <button display="icon" icon_size="large" label_pos="right"> <label>Copy to Batch Select</label> <tip>Copy filenames of currently selected files to batch file for re-selection later...</tip> <icon1>#clipcopy</icon1> <function type="batch"> <instruction>echo @echo off&gt;select.cmd</instruction> <instruction>echo &quot;C:\Program Files\GPSoftware\Directory Opus\dopusrt.exe&quot; /cmd select none&gt;&gt;select.cmd</instruction> <instruction>echo &quot;C:\Program Files\GPSoftware\Directory Opus\dopusrt.exe&quot; /cmd select {o}&gt;&gt;select.cmd</instruction> </function> </button>
Check out this thread if you're not sure what to do with the button code above...

Maybe be nice if GPsoft added some kind of argument to the Select command like FROMLISTFILE or something...

If you want to try file collections, search Preferences for the Add File Collections list to the Send To Menu option and try that out first. There are then other ways to use the folder tree, buttons or context menu items to work with file collections...

The Scrap Collection Buttons might be useful here.

thanks for the button.. i think it's work but sorry i can't understand how i can activate saved selection.. gimme the tip plz.
