RFE: change properties of multiple files at once
Last modified: 2015-01-07 19:07:11 EST
Description of problem:
Its often useful to modify the properties of multiple files at once
(eg, change permissions for all the files in a directory). When one
attempts this, Nautilus pops up a seperate window for each file.
This makes changing the permissions of any large number of files
quite time consuming. Rather than fill in thirty dialogs for thirty
files, it'd be easier to have one dialog with the combined properties
of the file (see how Windows and KDE do this - eg, grey the boxes
where the permissions aren't consistent).
Nautilus 2.6 will do this.
2.6 will be in Fedora Core 2. And in RHEL some time after that.
