|Target Version||5.0||Fixed in Version||5.0|
|Summary||0016505: Files cannot be auto-organized until duplicates and overly long filenames are edited|
|Description||1) Select thousands of files (typicaly a whole library)|
2) right-click > Auto-organize...
3) MM5 warns that there are duplicates and overly long names to edit and does not allow to proceed
It should be able to proceed and MM should auto-cut and auto-resolve the duplicities (e.g. using numbered suffix like ..(1) )
MM4 allowed to proceed, but this way user could lost some files -- as it did not add numbered suffix and rather suggested to replace the duplicate files -- which is actually the worse case

|Fixed in build||2241|
I think we could add an [Auto-resolve] button next to the warging text?
Duplicates and overly long filesnames are highlighted. Please edit them. [Auto-resolve]
Where clicking [Auto-resolve] would add the numbered suffixes and auto-shorts long paths?
Maybe also adding filter button (Drop down?) to snow only affected case files in the list as from user post i think it would help him to resolve such issue more quickly, than scroll thru list?
Also grouping such files on top of the list would help as a quickest method?
Sounds good. From a UI perspective, we should:
1) Show the problematic files at the top of the list (I wouldn't bother with a filter)
2) Add a button to fix the filenames (note the proposed revision to layout and button naming):
Destination: ____________________________________________________________ . . . . . . . [>>] [Configure]
Duplicates and overly long filesnames are highlighted. Please edit them. . . . . . . . . [Fix filenames]
Resulting directories and filenames:
1) I agree only issue I see with that is that that different errors are colored same so user can't differentiate what are Duplicates and what are Long filenames (or maybe not if they are sorted correctly)? (thus I think it is a question for 5.1)
2) Clean and efficient solution.
Changed target back to 5.0 as the need to manually edit duplicates and long names is really annoying.
I would rather say that MM5 should _always_ auto-resolve the conflicts and this way we don't need to add the [Fix filenames] button and warning text at all.
=> Fixed in 2241
Note: Added the auto-resolving to 'Convert-Format' dialog too
Note: some users relied on the old functionality to automatically get rid of duplicates. We'll probably want to help such users by including a duplicates detected warning with a link to the improved duplicate removal functionality.
