    Default "Open With" on multiple selected tems


    I have added a custom "Open With" for folders in BC3's options. It's an simple association with a .bat file which expect a list of folder names.

    Unfortunately, the only option for such a custom "open with" is to open each selected folder with the .bat, one by one. Instead of that, I would like to send all selected folders' name to the .bat file at once. Is it possible ?

    If not yet possible, I think that could be the default behavior, in a future release, when the feature "Multiple Instance" is not checked in the "Open With"'s options.

    Thanks for the suggestion. This behavior is not currently supported in BC3, as you have found out, but it is on our Customer Wishlist to allow sending a list of files to a single Open With.

    As a workaround, you can select all of your files and use the Copy Filename command to generate a list of full paths to your clipboard. This may be useful in pasting into a parse-able input file.
