[quote="leo"]You mean you want to right-click and rename items in the folder tree? That should be part of the default config.
Selecting items in the tree and pushing F2 to rename is also part of the default config (unless your config dates back to Opus 6 and has never been reset).
If the right-click entry is not there for some reason then you can add it:
[ul][li]Go to Settings -> File Types[/li]
[li]Edit the All files and folders type near the top[/li]
[li]Select the Context Menu tab[/li]
[li]Click the New... button[/li]
[li]Set the Type to Run an Opus function[/li]
[li]Use this as the command:
rename "%2" INLINE="%1"
FWIW, this screenshot is from a machine with the default Opus install on it:[/quote]
Thanks for the walk thru, and screen shot. I tried to respond in kind but the cheap (free) little screen grabber I use (handySnap) apparently is incapable of ignoring the mouse click required to display right click menu.
I'd forgotten about F2, and I see the rename item is also under the File menu, if I wanted to take the detour to get to it.
However I've become so accustomed to being able to right click an item and have `rename' be on that menu, that I'd really like it to work in DO too.
Oddly the rename menu item is there when right clicking anywhere else on the computer including the right hand pane of DO.
Oh wait: I see whats going on now, after a little more dinking around. Its only when I right click on the top level DRIVEs that the problem occurs. Anywhere deeper into the tree, and the
rename' item appears as usual. Even the same drive that doesn't display rename on right click will if I click onMy Computer' and throw them into the right pane.
Try right clicking on what is listed as:
`Local Disk (C:)'
In the screen shot you posted.
Or better yet try this; Click on
My Computer' in the tree view then drop straight down to C: still in tree view and right click. Do you have arename' item.
Now move over to the right pane and right click C: again... `Rename' now shows up.
At least that is what I see here.
Windows own default tool (Windows Explorer) does not exhibit that behavior. Even a top level right click in tree view will show the rename menu item.
Its not exactly a major problem... but still... I'd prefer to be able to right click any directory or drive and get the rename item.
