Focus folder when error dialog pops up for too long filename

Post by Rippedgeek » 15 Sep 2015, 00:34

Hi Jan and crew

Could you guys please add the option to focus on the indicated file or folder when you copy a filename/foldername that is too long (as per the attached image)?
This would make it so much easier when copying folders that have a few long filenames in it -> focus, rename, move it, continue the copying process. Or something similar.

Cheers, and thanks for the most useful tool in my arsenal.

We have added Focus button to message boxes reporting too long name or path. It will be available in prepared version 3.08.

Is it feasible to offer to use UNC paths at that point?
