Description _ tboudreau 2008-01-28 02:30:51 UTC
I have some project folders in a private mercurial repository that were moved there from's contrib project.  Mercurial knows nothing about them yet.  
I am trying to rename some of them.

When I try to rename one of these folders in the IDE I get:
ERROR Command failed:
Command: [/usr/local/bin/hg, rename, --repository, /Users/tim/space/hg_nb/nb_all/ext, --cwd, /Users/tim/space/hg_nb/nb_all/ext, 
dynactions_1.nodes, api.dynactions.nodes]
Output: [abort: no files to copy]
in the output window.

The module should detect if the files are known to mercurial and do a normal rename on them if not.

Can you clarify whether the problem is with files or folders?
Comment 2 _ tboudreau 2008-01-30 11:40:28 UTC
This was folders;  I filed a similar issue for renaming files.  May be the same thing.
Comment 3 Padraig Obriain 2008-01-30 11:50:29 UTC
I can reproduce it in Favourites or Files View but not in Projects View.

I do not see an issue open about renaming files. What is its number?

Hrm, I thought I filed it.

Just copy a (managed) and paste it as (unmanaged).  Refactor-rename it to  The content is refactored;  the filename is not
