Text to folders improvement
« on: June 06, 2016, 08:32:40 AM »
hello!

I find very useful the Skwire's Text to Folders program

but is it possible to be expanded?

I would like to create any type of file (doc, xls, xlsx, htm, txt, etc)

thanks!

Well, XYplorer has this functionality for many years (since 05-Oct-2009). And it also can do it for files, of course. 8)
The commands are called "New Folders" and "New Files", both under menu Edit / New.

Note that XYplorer native variables, environment variables, and full and relative paths are supported. So you can as well state patterns like these:

      MoonLanding\TopSecret\new.txt
      \MarsLanding\TopSecret\new.txt
      D:\Testpath\new.txt
      %username%.txt
      New <date yyyymmdd>.txt

thanks but I would like a portable app for that exactly, not a full windows explorer replacement

Well, XYplorer.exe is 6.68 MB and 100% portable. No install required. Run it from anywhere. The free version XYplorerFree is even a little bit smaller. :)
