What's the feasibility of incorporating a Copy Filename & Copy File Path functionality into WinSCP?

Especially for remote files, but possibly for local too.

What happens now is that I copy the filename by hitting F2 to edit the name, but by default it selects the name and not the extension. Then, when I hit enter it fails to "rename" because the name is the same. I have to hit skip or abort.

I suppose I could hit escape, just not in the habbit.

Also, Ctrl+C should copy the files like normal, for the ability to paste them somewhere else on the remote server. Any reason that's not supported yet? Currently Ctrl+C just seems to select all files.

Any chance of this type of intuitive copy/paste support being supported in the future? Or by chance, maybe it's already incorporated now, just via different shortcuts/commands?

Cheers!

Please read documentation. If that does not help, come back.

See tracker.

I had only one request for this so far. See tracker.

It compares local and remote directory.

I recently discovered the copy filename and copy file path functions hidden under the "File Names" submenu of the context menu that appears when you right click a file or folder.

But yes, the lack of copy/paste on the remote side still annoys me. I hate the command line, so I hate using Duplicate. But I use it out of force, because I've gotten no love from Ctrl+C on the remote side.

At least implement the functionality and let us customize the hotkey-to-function mapping!
