Give us back the dot (.) in *path* names!
« on: October 30, 2013, 08:47:57 AM »
This correction in R15000 took away important functionality:
"File renaming no longer allows leading period ( . ) character which causes files on Mac OS X to be hidden."

In the Copy/Move dialog we were able to enter ../FOLDERNAME in the "Create subfolder" filed.

An amazingly helpful option to create a parallel folder instead of a subfolder! I wish other programs (like Lightroom) could do that!


Now that PM no longer accepts the dot as the first character but replaces it with a dash (-) this option is gone. And a weird subfolder named -. is created.


PLEASE PLEASE give us back the option to create parallel folders. It makes my life easier each and every day. Seriously!


Just accept no other dot besides ../ and we're happy again!  :)


Thanks for listening!

I'll look into making that restriction not apply to path names if two dots and a slash are present.

Sounds awesome! Thank you, Kirk!  :D

In the meantime you can go back to using build 13915 to get back your relative pathing feature. ;)
