Re: New user needs to find file matches over several folders, if any

I am not using a script. Free version.

I am only using the GUI.

Tab "Name & Location"

XYplorer native variables are resolved in the name pattern. So you can search for things like <U+202E> or <clipboard>.

It doesn't matter what xy variable I use, I still get either zero results or all files. I have tried to load the clipboard with the filename and base only but nothing works.

You can combine folders into a search by putting both paths into the "Location:" string part (Name & Location tab) and separate them by e.g. a bar ("|") character The combine character is ; I still can't get the namebase part of the selected file into the Name field of the Name & Location tab in th...

Awesome! Thank you for that!

Do you know if I can do anything to not have to type the filename into the search field?
