  • Feature Request: Autoname tasks

    (also see posting in BC3-area)

    Suggestion for an OPTION.. to autoname task including paths.

    Maybe I have a small chance now in BC4... ??

    Thanks!

      Thanks.

      Of course I know a session can be 'Saved as...'

      Meanwhile, say, I have two sessions, with the same sourcename
      e.g.
      (1)
      Left:
      I:\Progs
      K:\Backup\Progs

      (2)
      I:\Progs
      Z:\Backup\Progs

      With me, under Autosave, only 1 entry 'Progs' shows up.
      If paths were added (again, as option), then I assume there would be 2 (or more) entries?

      Under Save As, when clicking on the pull down menu, under name, it says
      Copy folderstructure
      Copy Parent foldername

      Am a bit confused: I guess the above is about a -method- of copying, whereas in that box a -name- should be entered?

      Great tool, Beyond Compare!

        The top drop-down control in the Save As dialog holds the MRU (most recently used) list, and not methods for copying. Is it possible that you saved sessions with these names?
        Copy folderstructure
        Copy Parent foldername

          Also, if you load I:\Progs and K:\Backup\Progs, then load I:\Progs
          Z:\Backup\Progs, you should end up with two auto saved sessions.

          The auto saved list will show:
          Progs
          Progs

          One session for each pair of folders.

            Ahum ...
            Oh oh .. What a shame...
            Sorry..

            You are right, they were more down my list and I overlooked them.
            Also I should have given them a more -say- 'personalized' names, to avoid me thinking that is a Beyond Compare-suggested ones.

              Thanks a lot.
              I tried again and again.

              Actually after the 4th time(..) of running the tasks, they indeed showed up separately.
