Description

(Sorry for my bad English)

Please imagine the next situation.
We have a big heap of files and directories that should be moved to some directories hierarchy ("разбор файлопомойки"). For example, we have text documents, music, electrical schemes, datasheets and many other files. All this are on left panel.
On right panel we have an accurate directories for this files.

Process of sorting heap of files consist of changing directory on right panel and moving files into directories. In this process the next situation is very often:

  1. Go to directory a, move file into it.
  2. Go to directory b, move file into it.
  3. Go to directory c, move file into it.
  4. Go to directory a, move file into it.
  5. Go to directory c, move file into it.

Switching between directories in this process gets many time.
It can be optimized if mc will have directories history:

  1. Go to directory a, move file into it.
  2. Go to directory b, move file into it.
  3. Go to directory c, move file into it.
  4. Switch to directory a from history, move file into it.
  5. Switch to directory c from history, move file into it.

IMHO this feature can economy many time for users.

Change History

  • Priority changed from major to minor
  • Type changed from defect to enhancement

Use

mv %f /some/dir/

It will be in history, and can be reused.
(instead of %f, you can use %s, which mean selected files).
Also input "to:" (in copy/move dialog) has hitory and can be used for it.

"has hitory" - I mean has history.

Thanks for report.

Each file palel already has its own directory histroy. Try Ctrl-H shortcut. Note: not Ctrl-h but Ctrl-H or Ctrl-Shift-h.

Replying to andrew_b:

Each file palel already has its own directory histroy.

Each file panel already has its own directory history.

Sorry for typos. :(

I'm wrong. Shortcut is Meta-H.

Sorry again.

Shortcut is Meta-H.

You are right. This works! :-)

So, I want to change ticket requirements:
was: add directory history feature
now:
1) add this feature to "left" and "right" menus;
2) think about change default shortcut. Meta-H is Alt+Shift+h, but Alt+Shift may be used for switching keyboard layouts by many users.

Sorry for type "Defect". I forget to change it to "Enchancement".

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to invalid

Replying to sergey-feo:

Shortcut is Meta-H.

You are right. This works! :-)

That is written in MC doc (man and built-in help), isn't it?

2) think about change default shortcut. Meta-H is Alt+Shift+h, but Alt+Shift may be used for switching keyboard layouts by many users.

Use Esc-H instead.
