[FileBot 4.9.2] Multiselect

Post by tcd »

Hi everybody,

Thanks for the new Version. But I have a little problem with this version. I miss the multiselect function for files and directorys. It´s a little uncomfortable. It´s possible to add this function again? In Version 4.9.1 works this very well.

Thanks for your help!

Please include screenshots to illustrate the problem.


Also, what OS are you using? (screenshots help with that too)

With the Version 4.9.1, when I select some directory, I can use STRG or SHIFT to select all dirs I need.

With the Version 4.9.2, I have no possibility for multiselect when I use "select folder". If I use "Select files" all is ok and I can select several files in one step.

Image

My OS is Windows 10 Build 1909 with Java 10.x
Thanks for help!

I see. The file dialog implementation has indeed changed from the Java Swing JFileChooser to the native Windows File Dialogs. The latter is better integrated into the system, but has limitations as well (i.e. doesn't support all-in-one file and folder multi-selection).



:arrow: I'd recommend using drag-n-drop to load files into FileBot. That will allow you to select and drag multiple files and folders at the same time.



:arrow: Alternatively, if you really want the previous Java Swing JFileChooser implementation back, then you can configure FileBot like so:

Code: Select all

filebot -script fn:properties --def net.filebot.UserFiles.fileChooser=Swing
