Flatten multiple folders

Post by Papoulka » 22 Apr 2019 01:40

XY 19.90.0100

With multiple folders selected in the List pane, I can right-click on one and 'flatten' it. But I want XP to flatten all the selected folders...

While the developer considers changing this functionality (which could possibly be there as a safety belt of sorts), if you weren't aware already just FYI there is a flattenfolder() scripting command, so you could easily script this task.

Flatten folder is a pretty heavy operation. I think it's okay to perform it only on the focused folder.

You got a lot of different versions for a script that is capable of doing this?

Whether or not I could script this is irrelevant to my post.

One of the reasons people suggest features is because those could make sense for the general XY user. Getting dissed for it won't help the flow of ideas.

Anyway - you win, finally. I'm outta here.

By suggesting that you use something that YOU requested yourself and Don stated that
he won't implement it? :appl:
