Easy config of user menu left en right panels

Post by Tuvok » Mon 03 Sep, 2018 11:24

Hi,

I use the user menu very often and have menu options to open source and target locations using:
lua: if PPanel.Left then Keys("Tab") end -- if we want the source to be on the left side
lua: Panel.SetPath(0, [[source_location]]) -- source directory
lua: Panel.SetPath(1, [[target_location]]) -- target directory

It would be nice to have this more user friendly by adding a two field option where you can add a source and a target location somehow

What's the ideal workflow you'd like to have?

As UserMenu options you have 'Insert command' and 'Insert Menu'.
I was thinking of a third option 'Insert Folder'. When you activate this the left and right panels are default filled in a source folder field and a target folder field. You have the option to change these folders and the possibility to save the settings of only one panel.

option 'Insert Folder'
User Menu is just a wrong way to solve this. There were a couple of plug-ins/scripts which provide this functionality. I hope other forum members will give the links.

Can you please elaborate how Named Folders Lite can be used to set paths to both panels?
