Question How to transfer entire source without selecting?

Hi,

I would like to know if it is possible to transfer the entire source folder without selecting everything first?

I have looked at the settings but can't find the setting..

Thanks

You can use the Ctrl+A shortcut to select all in the file list pane.

Or you can select and queue the base folder via the "Navigation Tree" pane when selecting it via the file listing is not possible due to permissions or the base folder being root.

The navigation tree can be toggled via the first button on the sub navigation toolbar as shown below:



Alternatively you can queue the folder via a raw command command, from the main menu > Commands > Raw Command

Code:
/queue -d "/source/path/" "c:\target\path\"

I see, thank you.

I seem to remember that the 4.x version had an option to automatically select all content of the file listing window if nothing was selected or am I wrong?

Anyway it would be nice to have that option as a setting. Any chance it will be implemented?

Again, thanks for the help

Some 4.x releases had the ability to queue/transfer the parent directory entry in the file list, this had the same effect as the solutions I provided above, sadly the feature was later removed because it caused too much confusion among many of our customers.

In the latest v5.1 release some limited functionality was re-introduced; you can drag the "parent directory" entry, but you still can't right-click or use the toolbar buttons to interact with it.

Fair enough. I can understand the decision to remove a feature that is causing user grief. I do hope it find its way back one day. You could hide under double advanced settings, like Settings->Advanced->Geeks Only->Blue Pill->You Asked For It->Cookie

Anyway, thank you for your time.

We do have an advanced config setup via raw commands /set <token> <value>

I implemented a new token to control this behavior and you can test it out in this new build.

1 . Download FlashFXP 5.1 build 3846
2. Install the update
3. Commands > Raw Commands (or Ctrl+R) and enter

Code:
/set app.queue.parent 1
This setting is remembered on restart so you only have to do this once, to undo this setting
Code:
/set app.queue.parent 0
Please give it a try and let me know

Wau...! Freaking awesome service! That was so unexpected

Not to be a hassle but I use the portable version, I don't have it installed. Is there a installer flag to make it portable?
