Rename files in folder comparison
Submitted by Dimitri K
What about adding an option to rename a file by right-clicking on it and/or using F2?
I have noticed that many times when we use Meld here to compare directories a file name in the directory may have slightly changed (for instance changing a letter from lower case to capital or similar) and then Meld cannot compare them, I need to exit, rename the file and restart Meld. Having a way of hitting F2 or right-clicking to rename the file would thus be very useful.
(answer I got from Kai W. on the mailing list:
"There's no way to do this within Meld at the moment. You also don't need to quit and restart Meld after doing an external rename though; you can just refresh the comparison.
However, I can see how this could be useful. Could you please file a bug report?
