Hi,

Here I am posting some of my own rule examples using DropIt v5.3. I hope you like them .

NOTICES:
_________

* To make things easy ,the destination folder will be always in " D:\TEST\ ..." in the all
examples.Of course you can change it as you like.

* Backup your own DropIt settings before testing anything .

* You need to look at my options in the following screenshots.

3.SizeY=
4.Destination=

Starting from your examples, we may consider to create a database of useful profiles for the users. :roll:

Edit: maybe in a next version they could be included with profile Examples already available in DropIt, extending this feature.

Re: DropIt - creating folders

#1158 Post by Nesh70 » Wed Sep 04, 2013 11:05 am

Hi!

First, congratulations for developing such a nice software!

Well, I would like to ask you if it's possible to create sequential numbered folders (01, 02, 03...) while moving files inside them, separated by some portion of its filenames?
Example:

I have many files in a folder with:

D001a.jpg, D001b.jpg, D001c.jpg...
D002a.jpg, D002b.jpg, D003c.jpg...
D003a.jpg, D003b.jpg, D003c.jpg...
and so on...

...and I want them saved in sequential folders, separated by the string initiated in the second letter, including three characters (001, 002, 003...). So, each folder will have only the specified filename number group.

Thank you!

You can use "abbreviation modifiers" to do it (info at 5.4 of the guide). You could try using this association:
Name: Sort Images
Rules: *.jpg
Action: Move
Destination: C:\MyPhotos\%FileName#>2,3%

Stable version 5.3 is available!

One of the main new features is the "Create Gallery" action, developed with tproli collaboration.
These are some theme examples: Brochure, Circles, Default, Pile, SquareHeads...

Check the included Help file how to start DropIt with a specified profile (in chapter Configurations -> Additional Features -> CommandLine Parameters)

Some users reported that the last version of DropIt doesn't start on Windows 8 systems. Can someone verify it?

One of the core changes of version 5.3 is the update to the last beta version of AutoIt (to fix a FTP issue), I don't know if it can be the problem.

It seems that only "DropIt_x64.exe" doesn't work and so also the installed version on win8 64bit, given that is automatically installed the 64bit exe. Some users are doing tests to help me with this issue and I'm reporting the problem on AutoIt forum, because I can't understand the cause.

If someone with win8 would like to test the 64bit exe of DropIt, this is a version with some messages to help me to understand the problem position:

I have 64-bit Windows 8 and I tested that build. It crashes after step 9.

Hallo all,

first of all do you have an archive to download older Versions of DropIt? The new version 5.3 with its newly structured rule files makes it unhandy and uncomfortable to work for me. I use DropIt with some 10.000 rules. The new structure triples the size of the rules file, makes the sorting take at least twice as much time and has become unhandy to automatically and fastly create new rules through a customized Excel Rule-Generator.

Maybe I have missed it but having the opportunity to download older version from your site would be of great help. Thanks.
