  • "Copy to Folder" Annoyance

    Occasionally I get a "system cannot find path specified" error while trying to copy a group of selected files from one side of a folder compare window to a NEW folder - that is, one created at the beginning of the copy function.

    It seems that when I add a new folder name for the destination, I sometimes have a trailing blank character. Windows drops the trailing blank when the folder is created, but Beyond Compare keeps the blank and cannot find the new destination.

    I confirmed this behavior in BC2 and BC3. I'm sure this problem is probably rare, but when it happens it can be very frustrating because the destination folder name "looks" fine.

    Thanks for the report. I've been able to repeat this behavior and I'll make a tracker entry for this issue.
