  1. Batch Rename support

    Support for a basic 'Batch Rename' feature accessible from the same 'rename' item upon multi-select would be a great addition to SE 2.0

    QuickPic features this and QuickPic's Batch Rename is so simple with it's use of customizable naming template codes.

    I thought at first that Solid Explorer should have a same look renamer as the one that QuickPic has but now I am thinking of something a little more dedicated....

    ...Ok, how about Solid Explorer's 'Batch Rename' initiating in a separate window, just like how the Bookmarks Manager initiates in a separate SE window. With this, SE's batch Rename…

      This was also planned for the old version. I need to use some batch rename tools to determine which options are most suitable and needed by people. This feature should appear in the final release, perhaps even in beta.

        I’m glad to announce that the OTG plugin is finished. It supports FAT32 and exFAT partitions in read/write mode. NTFS is also supported, but only in read mode. Maybe write support will be added in the future. As of now, this is all I could manage to implement.

      • Provide support to play media files in series when selected

        When multiple media(Audio as well as video) files are selected they could be played serially using built in players or through other applications.
        And also add next or previous buttons to play next or previous media.
        Thanks

            • Fingerprint login

                      Please provide an option to turn off image previews in the Properties window.

                      I opened Properties for my top-level storage folder, and it started displaying images I wouldn't want other people to accidentally see! (I won't go into more detail...)

                          • See which app created directory

                            Many apps create files on the internal storage. Often finding out which app is making these files is not obvious. For example, if a folder called cache appears, it would be great if under its properties I can see what app created that folder.

                              This feature will be available in the next update. However, SE will display app icons only with known folders. It means that the list needs to be updated from time to time. If you notice a folder with no app icon, let me know about that.

                            • Can interaction with folders/any file from properties section b added?

                              It's quite annoying with you are viewing a folder's properties and hind that u need to edit, share it do anything with that files right away at that screen; at that moment
                              Hence I request this feature
                              Now it's up to the dev as its his app let the best suggestion b implemented!

                              • Attribute editing for mutliple files

                                So currently you can hit properties on 1 file and update the permissions/attributes, but it would be nice if you can do it for multiple files. It only makes sense to allow bulk editing. I have to use the CM file manager to accomplish this currently.

                                • Tap hold to input a Variable -[Batch Rename improvement]

                                  I strongly propose a simple method of inputting the variables simply by tap and hold which would auto inject them into wherever the cursor is on the line.

                                  My reasons are:

                                  1.) Android system keyboard's often feature characters such as percent % and more in an keyboard extended menu, just like numeric text is in an extended keyboard menu. This makes the job of adding the Batch Rename variables extra longer and tedious

                                  2.) There are Batch Rename variables with the same letter but with different case size (upper case and lower case). This can be confusing to a first…

                                  • The 'Rename' should be on the toolbar for faster access

                                    I support moving the 'Rename' menu item from the overflow menu and place it on the toolbar next to the 'copy' and 'delete' buttons.

                                    Also this could open the future door to Solid Explorer's first 'Batch Renamer' function:

                                    • Toolbar flexible (both Bottom or Top)

                                      I have come up with a new idea for the editing tools of the SE 2.0 toolbar and how it can be expanded and newly displayed.

                                      Personally I prefer accessing my tools Copy/Cut/Delete etc from the Top of the screen which is how SE 2.0alpha currently does it, for me it's clearer to use and easier for single-handed operation when holding my phone with one hand.

                                      I certainly do think that 'Rename' and 'Share' should be on the accessible tools for quicker instant use instead of having to open an overflow menu for those.

                                      So in total the new proposed…

                                        When opening Images, music, or videos, have solid explorer preview them and give users option to open with a different app.

                                        • Unmount a USB device (safely remove)

                                          Ability to Unmount a USB device.

                                          This is already suppoted in the Android system settings under "storage"

                                          I am unsure if this feature may require a Root support.

                                          However it would be fantastic to be able safely remove a USB device just by long-pressing in the desired usb within the left-swipe menu
