Hello.

It would be very useful to have an option in the context menu that is shown when mouse right click in an element of the list, to copy on clipboard the full path of that element.

Regards

Ozelui.

Hello,

Just wondering, for which purpose?

:D Actually you're right: I don't know. In the moment I saw that necessity, I had it clear, but now I don't remember it so probably it wasn't very important.

Sorry for the inconveniences and thank you for your effort.

Hi,
I'd find some use this in this feature -- I know it shows up as a tooltip on hover but for various file maintenance activities I do (duplication cleanup, moving files around to newer NAS, etc) knowing which path Videonizer is pointing towards is key.

Right now my autohotkey scripts go through a few (not very graceful) steps to "grab" that from Videonizer and a more direct option would be useful.

Ok, so what is the point to create a request for Videonizer in Video Thumbnails Maker thread? ;)

Yes, definitely it would be a very useful option. Today I have been working with the software (I purchased it only two days ago) and I would have appreciated having that feature. Essentially the kindly request is:

Both in Videonizer and VTM, in the main video list, when right mouse clicking, add an option in context menu to copy to clipboard the full path (without “”) of that video. If multiple selection, that option does not apply or could link to the Export List feature.

Thank you very much for your support. It is sincerely appreciated.


EDIT: instead "Copy to clipboard" feature could be "Open containing folder" feature
