I don't think it to be a good idea. Convert to DOS name was a TrackerV-specific uniq feature, which could be usefull in some cases. Well, we did not need it very often, but however it was not absolutely usefull as well. Please consider restoring it.
I thought the same and went back to test this feature again with v4.00.0140 but it didn't work anyway.
It returned an error message that the rename would collide with the DOS name that the file already has internally.

No, to the contrary: I invent ever more bizarre and gimicky new commands, and then manipulate the user into thinking they are important enough to execute them. :wink:

Download the latest TrackerV3 BETA version (v4.00.0141, 02-aug-2005).

Code: Select all

v4.00.0141 - 02.08.05 19:37
    + New keyboard shortcut: Ctrl+M  -> menu Edit/Selection Filter...
      Think "Match-select".
    + New command "Set Extension..." in menu File/Rename Special. Sets a 
      new extension to all selected files (replacing the old one, or 
      adding a new one if there was none before). Enter nothing to remove 
      any extensions.
      Folder names are skipped.
    - Menu File/Rename Special, removed the following commands:
      - Convert to DOS name
      - *.html to *.htm
      - *.htm to *.html

Download the latest TrackerV3 BETA version (v4.00.0140, 01-aug-2005).

Code: Select all

v4.00.0140 - 01.08.05 13:05
    + Menu Edit: new command "Selection Filter...". Now you can select a 
      subset of the currently listed files via pattern matching. For 
      example, *-* will select all files containing "-" in the name. Note 
      that the matching is hard-coded to be case-insensitive (a=A). Note 
      that if you enter no wildcards, wildcards will be internally added 
      (filter "b" => "*b*" => finds all files containing "b" in the name). 
      Just to spare you some key strokes.

Go ahead, man! Somehow I could never find a good resonance among audio freaks. Tell them!

Note that the Audio/Video Preview shortcuts work as well when the panel is down:
Space bar = Start/Stop playing.
Shift+Space bar = Restart from beginning

Download the latest TrackerV3 BETA version (v4.00.0139, 27-jul-2005).

Code: Select all

v4.00.0139 - 27.07.05 18:04
    * List, full row select: now a hit anywhere left of the Name column 
      does not select the item. This way you still have the Mouse Down 
      Blow Up feature of thumbnails in full row select mode, and you can 
      drag-select items in full row select mode if you start dragging in 
      the Line Number column or any other column that's located left of 
      the Name column. Another nice TrackerV3-only feature.
    + Configuration, Preview: new option "Audio preview with panel 
      down". Now you can preview (listen to) your audio files while the 
      info panel is down and/or the preview panel is not selected.
    + Configuration, General: added option to Minimize To Tray: when you 
      minimize TrackerV3's main window it will be removed from the task 
      bar and its icon will appear in the system tray.

YES!

Can it be changed so that the mouse down blow up still works with full row select? If not I can work with it now I know why.

Ah, ok. But, Full row select is Full row select. Now you want Part row select...? :wink:
