Replicants Marked in Move To?

Is there currently a way, or is it possible to denote those groups that are replicants in the contextual menu for Move To, like in italics or something?


In the screenshot above. “Communication” is a replicant group, and it would be nice know this before moving a file into it (as I don’t want to move into a replicant group).

It wouldn’t matter. If you move a file into a replicated group, the file will appear in both places anyways.

I want to avoid placing the file into any replicant group.

Development would have to assess this.

While we’re at it, why not show the indexed symbol as well? :slight_smile: Just a thought.

You could use a smart rule to rename replicated groups:

Thanks! That’s awesome.

I’ve added the Smart Rule and it works great. I was creating another smart rule to remove " [Replicant] on any group that was no longer replicated, but I can’t figure that one out. Can’t use RegEx, and I don’t find anything regarding the subtraction of text in a name.

This requires a small script:

on performSmartRule(theRecords)
	tell application id "DNtp"
		repeat with theRecord in theRecords
			set theName to name of theRecord
			if theName ends with "[Replicated]" then
				set theName to (characters 1 thru -13 of theName) as string
				set name of theRecord to theName
			end if
		end repeat
	end tell
end performSmartRule

Worked like a charm, thanks!
