Custom Commands: List of Selected Files Excludes Directories

Using !& to pass selected files to a command excludes selected directories! I can't believe this has gone un-noticed this long, but if you want to keep files separate from directories, at least give alternates for both selected-directories-only (perhaps !^) and selected-files-and-directories (perhaps !*).

Thanks! :)

Aha, I was wondering about those options. While it's not necessarily intuitively obvious that it applied to the "selected files" pattern, I thought something was hiding, and I'm glad it was only a preference.

While I'm on the topic, I was trying to implement a chmod command that applied only to folders, and the main reason is because the "Apply X to directories" from the chmod section of the properties doesn't work for subdirectories 90% of the time. I've seen it work before, but not recently.

Is there a setting I'm missing for that too? Wouldn't think there needs to be.

when it does not work?

There's no such option. You can simply select the directory only, cannot you?
