Time to revisit this issue.

Neither 3.50 (OS/2) nor 3.40 (Win) will create a directory when invoking the Convert option within the FOC.

If I select one or more files in the FOC, RMB and choose Convert:


When I select "Convert", I receive:


I have tried this with both local and network drives (all with plenty of space, and not write-protected).

This is consistent both my W98SE and W4 boxes.

On my XP box at work, running either 3.4 or 3.5 (I don't recall which), PMV will sometimes pop up a dialogue and offer to create the dir, but invariably can't do it.

My workaround for a long time has been to pre-create a "work" dir under whatever dir I wish to open in the FOC, but it's a hassle.

Is this able to be reproduced on your end?

Yes. I can see it here too. A workaround is to put in the full path in the "Output directory" field. Relative paths apparently do not work.

Typing "M:\ftp\hosting\PMView\work" in the field will give you the dialog that asks if you want to create the directory.

I'll fix this in v3.51

Hooray! That's fixed in 3.51 (tested the OS/2 version just now).

Can you trigger a refresh of the left directory nav pane when PMV creates a dir, so it reflects the new dir without having to switch panes and <F5>?

Perhaps the Win version already updates -- a feature of the OS. I'm referring to the OS/2 version here, as I know OS/2 has no API hook for having the OS notify the app when a file is deleted/added or when directories are changed.

For the OS/2 version:
