Batch rename, action of "Clear template"

Post by B.Douille »

Am I wrong or the button "Clear template" deletes all templates without warning ?

If confirmed that's really painful (I just lost the 10 templates I used to use :x )
May I suggest to change the behaviour so it delete only the template selected (a mean to clean-up the list).
Best if it does it immediately so multiple templates can be deleted if necessary.

I noticed that nothing really happens until I press Ok. But then the window closes and all my templates were gone!
Before pressing Ok the button clears the input field, no more templates are visible but if I press Cancel they are back on the next session.

yes it clears the list of template, perhaps a dialog box?

Best if templates are deleted one by one by pressing the button. Currently the only mean is to edit the .ini file (or the registry :twisted: )

Doing so makes the behavioural of this button more obvious, allowing a clean-up of the list, under visual control. No need for an additional dialog box.

If not possible / too complicated, then a confirmation box is welcome for the time being.

Dialog box works as expected. Now you can't be surprised all your rename templates are gone.

Thanks, take care and have a good holiday period
