I prototyped a feature that copy a folder not another Folder using a different item name (taking the new names from a text file) and that works fine.
Only exception is the copied folder Properties:
Arrangement (was: snap to grid),
Bounds (both left/top and width/height are different),
Current View (was by Icon, can be anything)
Background Picture / Background Color (The RadioButton is reset to White instead of Image).
The default Folder (that I copy into a master Folder) keeps its custom icon (a Red colored custom Folder).
A computer first job is to do any work that can be automated. In this case, I still have a lot to do.
In this case, it is faster to copy manually the original folder, then Copy/Paste the correct name not the Folders…
