Find Files and Dirictories features

Post by Narrakko »

I would greatly appreciate it if...
  • Add file extension column to search result.
  • Add Winows icons support for search result.
  • Add export search result future. As "Make File List" from "Commands" menu.
  • Add "Search only in selected" option, activate this option when user selected some directories in panels.
Thanks, You do great job, guys!

A workaround for this feature can be accomplished by User Menu action, which is available in Find dialog.
For example, I created makefile.cmd batch with this contents:

Code: Select all

@echo off
set filelist=c:\temp\filelist.txt
type NUL > %filelist%
for %%f in (%*) do echo %%f >> %filelist%
And set new User Menu action:

Now, if I select some files in Find dialog and execute this newly created action, I get file `c:\temp\filelist.txt` populated with selected file paths.

Windows Icons or different views (Detailed/Previews...) would be nice - but list results in panel would it solve elegantly enough (for me at least).
Maybe some way how to use multiple folders for search too. Drag and Drop for example. It could has list with checkboxes (for taking some away) too.

I thank for this method, but I cant make list from more than 40-60 rows in my search results (and I need much more - around 1k at least):
Cant make command from User Menu, command or his arguments are too long

Check http://forum.altap.cz/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=2758#p29436 for a solution that copies all properties of a long list of files.

"Solution" is way beyond my area of expertise and I don't have capaticies right now to expand those boundaries.
Thank anyway.
BTW I rememeber, that i get some (I think other) solution, but lost the result some time ago because corrupted AS setting file.
