Error in rename function

Post by ovg » Wed Feb 14, 2018 7:23 pm

Hello, David!
I've found a bug in rename function when option display_full_path_name is set to 1

Code: Select all

display_full_path_name=1
In this case full path will be added before name.
Before: C:\My Documents\test.txt
After: C:\My Documents\CMy Documentstest.txt
It doesn't matter how you rename a file - inline or via context menu. (x64 only)
In x32 only inline renaming doesn't work.
It is impossible to rename a file at all - each time a full path will be added ....

Everything 1.4.1.895 x64/ Windows 7 SP1

Thanks for the bug report.

This bug was introduced in 888.
Everything will strip all invalid filename characters.

Fixed in Everything 1.4.1.896.

With Everything 1.4.1.895, Renaming C:\My Documents\test.txt to test2.txt without the path part will work.

I don't use this feature much, is it useful to display the full path and filename when renaming, or should only the name part be used when display_full_path_name is enabled?

IMHO only name part would be enough.
