Do not select extension when renaming with F2

Attention to the details is what makes a program great. :)

I suggest implementing the following minor feature:

When pressing F2 to rename files, the complete file name is selected, so the use can start typing without deleting the old file name first. Let only the actual file name (without the extension) be selected after pressing F2! Most probably, in the majority of cases users do not want to change the file extension when renaming files (and when they do, they can delete the extension manually).

This feature has been implemented already. It will be included into the next major release.

Using your test version...
I want standard behaviour with F2 ((
I'm very often making changes to extensions... and also dislike explorer feature to hide extensions at all ((
Of course I can press Shift+End, but..

Are you changing the extension only? Then I do not see how the previous behaviour was more useful for you? Still you had to select or delete the extension manually.

No, almost always changing filename & extension together.
OK, added to tracker. With low priority. Will see what other users want, once 4.1 is released.

Do not select extension when renaming with F2

The best approach would be if you could enable / disable the feature in Preferences. This way everybody would be happy :D

The best way is to do it like in Total Commander - press F2 once to select name + extension; then if you press F2 once more only name will be selected.

p.s. and while we are at it, let's change it to shift-F6 like in TC ;))

Sorry, I do not want to change that. Shift-F6 is already occupied in WinSCP.
