Is there a script that
1. Copy the name of the folder to the tag field
2. Automatically create a smart list with the tag field

Example, all my comics of serie XXX are in one map. In folder browser I want to right click on the folder and automatically fill in the tag field for all comics in that folder.
Then I want automatically to create a smart list with the name XXX where tag is XXX

The reason I wanna do this is because I want to synchronise between my pc and tablet but the only way to do this is with list.

Or is there another a way to do something similar?

This is an old topic that was never answered but I would like to know if this is possible.
Anybody have any thoughts on this?

My first reaction to this question would be "Why?" The OP seemed to want to do somthing relatively meaningless within the context of a ComicRack database, which was to replicate their folders into smartlists

Firstly if the files really are all from one series then all one needs to do is <alt> drag the first issue into the temporary lists section and it does exactly that without the necessity of using a tag.

Less autommatically you could drag the contents of a folder from the Folder tab into the Library tab and drop it into temporary lists to make a normal list. Or create a smart list that only includes files from a particular folder.

But it still seems odd that you wouldn't just use the normal browsing, searching and filtering options of the library itself.

I guess the follow up question is what exactly do you want to achive? Because the end result may be somthing that can be done in other ways.
