Default Manual renaming/deleting impossible if ';' in directory name!

Hello everyone,

I came across a quite frustrating problem in FlashFXP (which is a great program btw!). It seems I cannot manually rename or delete (ie. using raw commands) a directory that has a ';' in its name, because that character makes FlashFXP think there is a new line in the command. Is there any way to circumvent this, and if not, will it be fixed/changed in a future version?

I'm sorry I posted this, I just found out this had been asked before (I guess I didn't give the search the right keywords...). But isn't there any chance this functionality (like being able to put a \ in front of a ; to make it work)? I would really appreciate it, because I use dir names with ;'s in them a lot, and it would come in quite handy if I could delete them, or at least rename them.

No, I really want to rename/delete my own directories. And don't start about warez.. btw if you don't believe me, and you know what DFXP stands for, look me up there

I think you can use %d and enter a ";" without it being parsed. With the current design there is no other way. Why not use the features provided for deleting and renaming, why you need to use raw commands is beyond me.

Thanks bigstar, that worked! It's not so often I have to do this, so using a custom command with %d isn't really a problem.

The reason I need to use raw commands: some ftps (running NT I believe) don't show a directory name fully if it starts with one or more spaces. Example:
\   test\
show up as:
Because of this, you cannot rename or delete such a directory the regular way. It also happens if such a directory is behind a com1 directory (because then, you can't view the listing of that directory directly).
