Creates multiple copies of a file under different names.


  • Creates multiple copies of a file under different names.
  • Verifies if the source file exists as it's being selected and checks the format of the output folder path.
  • Uses absolute path when selecting the source file [new v0.91].
  • Lists the full path of target files and displays a warning if any of the target files already exists.
  • Fields "New File Name Prefix" and "New File Name Suffix" give the ability to list the prefix and the suffix (or the file extension) shared by the listed files [new v0.91].


  • To make multiple copies of a file: invoke the plugin and select the "Copy From" source file. The ". . ." button can be used to invoke the file selection dialog. Enter the "Copy To" output folder. Within a second or so, the preview window will display more information about the specified files and folders. List the target file names, one file name per line. If all file names use the same extension, the "New File Name Suffix" field can be used to enter the extension once, instead of entering the extension in each file name. Wait a couple of seconds for the preview window to refresh the file information. Check the information and click OK to start copying files.
