Obviously not anything super-duper urgent; just something that occurred to me & I thought it'd be nice if whilst using the navigation lock, if there was a flag or something that could be used such that if one side doesn't have a folder to descend into, that could be (attempted to be) created.
Does that make sense to anyone? It happened as I was looking to copy over to my dev-drive the most recent versions of clinical documents from a mass of them, all saved in a rats' nest of directories. As I was cruisin' the production tree, I would have to stop to create a folder on the dev side in order to continue the linked navigation. Meh, wasn't the end of the world, just would have been nice.
Interesting idea. You can do this using a script, which I've written.
Download this and drag it to Preferences / Toolbars / Scripts:
NavLock_Folder_Create.vbs.txt (1.89 KB)
(Requires Opus 11.8 or above.)
UPDATE: The script above is old. A newer version has been posted to the Script Add-Ins area: NavLock Folder Create.
You sir, are gold! That's amazing! Thank you!!!
Since my script-fu is still pretty basic, I'm going to sit down & peruse your code once I'm done at work.
I had a situation yesterday, where this would have been handy. o)
Leo, do you mind if I reupload your script with some minor tweaks into the scripting area? Just in case you aren't keen in doing it yourself. o)
In a support thread like this, such a little pearl will be forgotten very easily I assume.
A newer version of the script has been posted to the Script Add-Ins area: NavLock Folder Create.
Same situation cropped up the other week with a completely different set of files & the script triggered without me remembering that I'd set it up to do that. Made my day!
