Custom copy: Name collision

Post by raananb » 19 Dec 2016 12:11

The logic in this panel if confusing to me:

When a Name collision is detected, the panel displays three options: button 'Overwrite' button 'Skip' and Selection 'Overwrite if newer'.

If I click OK without touching anything else, what action will be taken?

Also missing the "increment name" by adding a "1"

I kind of wish there were a date-irrelevant selection, since we're wishing - or overwrite if smaller. Date irrelevant with name and size-based option in Sync Select as well, for that matter - since we're wishing.

There is "Overwrite if different size or date".

Just wish date were an option to remove from the matches. Appreciate what's there though. You can imagine scenarios.

OK, understood now. Maybe later. Adding such an option is a LOT of work.

Don,
The addition of a label OLD and NEW next to each of the two files may help clarify the logic for many.
NEW = file you are attempting to place in a folder
OLD = file that exists or is present in the folder in question

At the moment you have the two lines in reverse from other similar programs.

Thanks for noting that. I actually took this weird order from Explorer (which is my undesired but natural role model for such decisions). And each time I see this dialogue I cringe and I need to adjust my brain to this stupid order.

Shouldn't I simply reverse it? So: Source at top -> Target at bottom?

just my opinion: always had to think twice what is source for me and what is target, usually one doesn't think about it. so more simple/obvious words would be welcome.

Ah! This thread must be about the changes in the collision dialog. I talked about it in the "Thanks Feature" and think I might as well suggested it here. Perhaps the arrow should be green? Also, it seems like the arrow is not centered well enough. Not a big issue or anything but it's just kind of evident.
