More intuitive support for moving a lot of files
Created originally on Bitbucket by Anonymous
I'm currently working on a project where I needed to move folders (that are under hg version control) from one folder to another. Problem is: TortoiseHg doesn't provide anything intuitive to do this. I know that TortoiseHg can guess renamings but I don't want to rely on "guessing".
http://tortoisesvn.net/docs/release/TortoiseSVN_en/tsvn-howto.html#tsvn-howto-move for an example of what I mean).When I use drag and drop (with the right mouse button) to move these folders, I only get the default Windows menu. So there's no special "use TortoiseHg to move these files" entry there (see
When I select the folders I want to move and then click in TortoiseHg on "Rename File...", I just get an error message saying "rename take one or two path arguments". No dialog pops up that allows me to specify the destination folder. (My guess is that this entry works only for single files but even in this case the error message is somewhat unclear.)
So it would be nice if one (perferrably the first) or both options were available to the user.
