Copying files from Flat View gets me the usual "recreate source directory structure or copy all files to same folder" dialog box. Is there a parameter I can add to automatically choose one method (e.g. recreate) so the dialog box doesn't come up?
Look in: SETTINGS/PREFERENCES/FILE OPERATIONS/COPYING (1)
And set the very last option to the method you want.
Not exactly what I need as this is a global setting. I wanted to create two buttons - one for single level and one for recreate directory structure.
Flat view was just introduced when version 8 was released, so it's somewhat in its infancy yet in regards to what it may one day be able to do. As now however, the global setting for flat view copying is the only way I know of for us to select how selected flat view files are copied.
You might submit your idea as a feature request.
