Suggestion: Convert to long name
« on: September 28, 2010, 09:59 AM »
I love SPC and I was wondering if you could add an option:
1) Change a short-form entry to the long-form
2) Display the long form next to the short form as a comment. 

I find myself trying to figure out where a short entry points to so I can determine if it needs to be included. Right now, I have to copy the entry and paste it into Explorer in order to see the long name. 

Perhaps the "display as comment" (number 2 above) idea might be better.  You could also display the short form if the entry is in the long form.  That could give a person an idea how much length could be saved by converting to a short form.  The option on the right-click menu could change based on the current form of the entry.

Thanks for listening...
