Shouldn't use ZTree's Alt-'D'uplicate just the current dir?!!

Posted By: Mathias Winkler <>

We have a great new command in ZTree now, Alt-'D'uplicate from the directory
window, to duplicate an entire branch, while preserving empty subdirectories
(Alt-Copy from Branch doesn't!) AND preserving dir-attributes (many other
methods/software doesn't!).

Currently, we have two options in ZTree's Alt-'D'uplicate:
'P'aths are (full paths) resp. (partial branch paths)

Unfortunately neither the first nor the latter option does work the way I
expect it to work, namely simply to use the *current* dir as top branch
below the target dir; so for instance if I want to backup the 'System'-branch
below the 'Windows'-dir to a target directory called 'Backup' or so, I have to
jump back to the parent dir ('Windows') and select option 'partial branch paths'!!!

IMHO Alt-'D'uplicate should, at least, have another option named "Current" to
use the current dir as root for the duplicated branch below the target;
just like most other file managers behave:
For example, using the Windows Desktop resp. Explorer, you would
select a particular directory, hit 'Copy', and then click on the target and
invoke a 'Paste' - that simple and does work rather intuitive,
why can't ZTree ?

Regards
Mathias
