  • How does one make a New Folder...

    ... when both sides are empty? The New Folder commands seems always disabled.

    Hello,

    Thanks for the suggestion, Chris. The New Folder Command requires a selection, which isn't available if both folders are empty. I've added an entry on this issue. Thanks for the input.

        Your inferred suggestion that the current functionality contains a bug and should be changed.

          Actutally inference is an action of reader rather than writer

            Perceptence is an action of the reader. Inference is the intent of the writer. In this case, I believe that Aaron correctly perceived what you were inferring.

              Well, the dictionary disagrees, e.g.

                As is often the case in the English language "Infer" is a word that can have multiple meanings. Being competent in the English language allows one to understand how a word is being used rather than arguing that it was used incorrectly (when if fact it was not).

                  "many 20th-century usage guides condemn [this] use, maintaining that the proper word for the intended sense is imply and that to use infer is to lose a valuable distinction between the two words."

                    Well, either way, the ability to make New Folders in an empty base folder should be in the next release.

                      Help on Actions->New Folder says:
                      On the Actions menu, the New Folder command lets you create a folder at the current position. If you have a file or folder selected, the new folder will be created with the same parent folder as the selected item.
                      But only if I select a closed folder. If I select an opened folder (no selection within), the new folder is created in the selected folder.


                      As this behaviour is necessary to create a subfolder in an empty folder. please add a hint to the help.

                      Enhancement suggestion for the wishlist: Allow multiple selection to create subfolders with the same name in all selected folders (opened or closed).
