Can't rename files using CAPITAL letters



  • I open PA, then try to rename a file (explorer view, anyway I’m in the rightmost panel, the one listing files), try to write into capital letters, but PA won’t accept them!
    It won’t write any upper-case letters!

    using 9.01.02

    thanks - we will check it out.



  • thank you!

    fiy, it won’t accept capitals in any case, also when you try to paste some, copied from another app (say notepad).



  • Does it work when adding files that are in capital letters.

    It is just an idea. 😃



  • I’m talking about renaming, mate, not adding…

    PA won’t allow you to type in capitals, that’s it.



  • Using Rename via right click context menu.
    The only capitals that work are BHJNOPQWXY
    All others effect an action or are ignored.

    eg F opens Favorite Folders.

    Unfortunately it did not fully.

    If you activate the CAPS LOCK then PA will accept any character.

    BUT, if you want to write capital letters via “shift+letter”, PA will just accept the following: BHJNOPQWXY. As for the others, nothing will happen.

    😞

    How exactly are you renaming these files? Ivan has told me previously that we will need to change our shortcuts (take out shift completly) however when I tested it, it works perfectly fine for renaming files inside archive, no matter what the font is…

    So I am not positivly sure if it was “fixed” completly, but it works fine over here.

    thanks,

    How exactly are you renaming these files?

    I told you in my last post…

    **Say I have a file named “file.exe”, and I want to rename it to “File.exe” through PA.
    Then I click once on it so the name gets modifiable, delete the “f” (or select it), then I do “shift+f” to get the F written, but NO WAY!!
    **
    As I said, if I activate “caps lock” (the one directly above the “shift” button) and I push “f”, no problems, an “F” is written
    (here I’m taking f/F as examples, it’s one of the letters not included in BHJNOPQWXY")

    The fact is that, as I think everyone else in this world does, I get the caps via “shift+letter”, and PA doesn’t like that…

    cheers, hope you can solve it promptly…that’s quite an annoying bug!


  • conexware

    Do you right click on the name and click on Rename or?

    thanks



  • ehr…

    btw: renaming via right click menu does not work!



  • I opened a new thread, because the other one on the capital letters has a different subject, I believe…(But if mods like, of course they can merge the threads)

    What happens, in the latest version (I can’t say with previous ones, as I never rename files via right click mouse menu), is that when you choose “rename” the files does not get ready to be renamed, nothing really happen.

    To catch at once what I’m trying to explain, I made a video about that.

    Download it HERE (right click, save with name), then uncompress it.

    Thank you!

    I believe this has been done on purpose, since we will have to do major reorganization of PowerArchiver shortcuts before we can make this work properly.

    So 9.1 it is…. I am going to merge this thread with one…

    so, what about capital letters? did I make myself clear enough? 🙂
    you could reproduce it coulndn’t you


  • conexware

    Yes - problem is that I was thinking about renaming files inside of an archive, which is what works. Reason Shift + Letter does not work in Explorer mode, while browsing the hard drive is that with those letters there are Shift shortcuts, so we have to remove those first or figure the way to not activate them when explorer component is renaming things, which I doubt we can do.

    So we have to spend a lot of time on it and we have left it for 9.1, when other explorer enhancements are coming as well.

    thanks,



  • 9.10.06

    now files can be correctly renamed, all capital letters work! good work! 🙂
