Thunar problem (percentage substitution)

Hello,

I am rather desperate with one silly thing. I am fond of Thunar's custom actions and now I wish I had an action able to simply resize images. Anyway, it seems it is NOT possible to use % character in the string because Thunar interprets that like a path.

Long story short:

convert %F -resize 50x50 %F works perfectly (just an example);
convert %F -resize 50% %F does not.

I have discovered it is absolutely the same behavior as in case of nautilus-custom-actions (or how it is called). There it is possible to see what happens with the example path, how it would be substituted. The app uses the same system of variables like Thunar does. And it sees the 50% %F like any ordinary path without the number.

Any help appreciated.

P. S. Of course, I have tried to comment that, without success (50\% or "50%" and so on).

Instead of 50%, can you use .5?

Re: Thunar problem (percentage substitution)

Thanks, it really does something but not what I need. It understands this (0.3) maybe as to be 0.3 of some ratio or pixel (I get atomic picture). Using another simple number does not work (e.g. 50 without percentage).

Thanks!
