Windows 10, Emacs 25.1, Dired+

I try to copy a file from test folder to nonexistent folder new:

Screen_1

But I get this error:

Screene

Is it possible to make Emacs autocreate folder new and copy the file to it? It would be very convenient.

(In file manager Total Commander it's possible. And it's very good.)

  • Please consider filing an enhancement request: M-x report-emacs-bug. You might want to request a user option that affects (creation of missing directories for) copying and moving files generally, i.e., not something that is only specific to Dired. – Drew Oct 13 '17 at 14:54
  • I never use before command report-emacs-bug. Has some kind of manual for this? – Alex Oct 13 '17 at 16:27

    Just invoke the command, then type your enhancement request in the space provided, then hit C-c C-c to send the report as an email. C-c C-c might ask you how you want to send it. I just answer mail-client, to use my ordinary mail client. That pops up a new mail message, where I paste the text that I edited (it is ready to paste). When you do C-c C-c you'll see more help/instructions. You can also just send a mail to bug-gnu-emacs@gnu.org, which is what report-emacs-bug helps you do. But report-emacs-bug sets up the mail correctly and includes some extra info. – Drew Oct 13 '17 at 18:41
