Code: Select all
v14.00.0108 - 2014-05-09 21:10 +++ Click and Search: Catalog categories now can be turned into something that will make searching for files your favorite pastime. - To enable the feature open a category's Properties dialog and tick "Use category for searching". - All items in such a category are expected to contain search patterns. Currently you will have to add them manually (later there will some cool automatic ways). Tip: Press INS to quickly add an item. Examples for Pattern: *.png !*.png (NOT *.png) prop:#AspectRatio: 16:9 tags:jazz tags:rock tags:pop :a* OR b* /n (a Boolean term, with a switch) Clicking an item will run the search (it's like a Quick Name Search) for the current location (the Location defined in the Category, see below, is not used now). - The items can be individually enabled via checkboxes. - Clicking the category will run a combined search of all ticked items. - A combined search can be either AND- or OR-combined. This can be configured in the category's Properties dialog. Any switches are removed from the combined terms. - Toggling the state of any item's checkbox will also run a combined search. Hold CTRL to suppress this trigger. - In the category's Properties dialog there is also a Location field. Leave it empty to always search the current location. Else enter any path. Enter * (asterisk) to search the whole PC. In the Location field you can also enter search switches (after the path if there is one). So here is the place to control whether the search is recursive (/r) or not (/n), or whether only the tags database should be searched (/t). Examples for Location: E:\Test = search E:\Test (Include Subfolders is taken from the setting in the Find Files tab) E:\Test /r = search E:\Test (Include Subfolders) E:\Test /n = search E:\Test (Do Not Include Subfolders) E:\Test;E:\Pics = search E:\Test and E:\Pics /r = search the current location (Include Subfolders) * = search the whole PC /t = search the tags database only (for items in the current location) * /t = search the tags database only (for items anywhere) - This is insane. Especially for tag-based file management. ! Locked Tree: Would not apply a Visual Filter from a Catalog Item where the path was identical to the current path. Fixed.
Note that BETA versions are work in progress and might contain fresh bugs. You have been warned.
It's a good idea to backup your complete XYplorer settings (menu File | Settings Special | Backup Application Data Folder...)
before running a new BETA version. This will also help in fixing any fresh bugs.
