expand env vars

Postby fpefpe » Mon Aug 12, 2013 1:38 pm

Hello -- not sure if this is more a suggestion, but it would be neat if I could specify a env var for a path, ie %userprofile% %temp% --- sometimes
these paths could be long and saying it like this would be great

Where exactly do you want to specify the environment variable?

Note that you can already specify an environment variable in the Directory box at the top of the directory listing.

In the "directory" input area -- now how I do this in a cmd window, I type

echo %temp > clip: ( this is tcc'ism )

then I can past ( ctrl-v ) in the directory area from the clipboard to display that path / folder

If I can just type %temp% into the directory input area it would save a step

But you can type %temp% here. After you press Return, it will be expanded to the corresponding directory. See the images below.

Note that this feature was introduced in V13. if you are still running V12 (or earlier), you will need to upgrade to the latest version.
