Prepopulate The Create Multi-page dialog

Post by brazenvoid »

For me this is the only reason, I have to juggle both Classic and MP together. Classic automatically populates the files inside the selected folder and its subfolders, saving me much work. I usually have a folder which has multiple folders inside with images to convert to pdf / tiff. MP needs me to get all the files inside each folder manually which is frustrating.

... In this case, maybe into the MP browser mode, the "Show all files (recursive)" can help ?

That does the trick, thanks.
Though the automatic pre-population by selection of parent folder would still serve as better user experience. If files can be populated through selection, I don't think it would take that much coding to cater for folders recursively too.
