Re: List of file types in the search categories?

Also, the search filter is displayed in the status bar when you hover over a filter item in the Search menu.

Re: File count column for directories.

The ability to right click on a directory, then middle click to have it open another copy of everything instead replacing the one you clicked from would be very nice. Not sure I follow exactly what you're suggesting, but you can get close to this feature by enabling "Options > General > Show folder...

Re: Filter functions

This is an excellent and powerful new feature! For example, I am now able to create a custom Whole Word filter that includes the underscore character as a word boundary, something I've long missed in Everything. I set up the Filter like this: Search: regex:"(?:\b|_)word:(?:\b|_)" Macro: ww<word> Tha...

Re: Rules for Filter Search Field

The filter search works exactly the same way as your normal search does. The filter search options, such as match case work exactly the same as a normal search does with enabling a search option from the Search menu. Modifiers can be used exactly the same as a normal search. Thanks for the notes. A...

Rules for Filter Search Field

Are there specific rules for what works in the Filter > Search field? I have not found many details in the documentation or the forum. For example: case:ABC regex:ABC both work, but the case is ignored; and: regex:"^ABC" regex:"[A-Z]" both return zero results (for me). Am I missing something? I'm su...

Bookmark Sort Not Remembered with Macro?

When a bookmark has a specified "Remember sort", the sort order is set correctly when the bookmark is called from the menu, but does not appear to be used when the bookmark is called with a macro. Is this the expected behaviour?

Tested in v1.4.0.713b and v1.4.1.787b, in Windows 7.

Re: Add Underscore to "Whole Word" Separator Characters

You could do that, if you were searching for a specific file and knew the details of the file name. However if you were searching across multiple hard-drives and thousands of files, and wanted to find all occurrences of eg " frog ", "frog,", "_frog_", etc, but not "frogs", then wholeword: would miss...

Re: Rename - Ignore Extension

You can retain different extensions during a rename with this pattern: Old format: %1.%2 New format: %1 river.%2 which will rename all of your example files from: test 123.mp4 test 123.flv test 456.mp4 test 456.flv to: test 123 river.mp4 test 123 river.flv test 456 river.mp4 test 456 river.flv witho...

Add Underscore to "Whole Word" Separator Characters

Would it be possible to add the underscore ("_") to the word separator characters in the Match Whole Word feature (and wholeword: modifier)? The underscore is a common word separator in source code file names, so this would be very handy for searching. Even better would be an .ini option to add an a...

Currently if the Preview panel has focus (eg when previewing a text file), the Tab key will move focus back to the Search field. However I have not found a keyboard shortcut to move focus into the Preview panel. Is there one already available? If not, could the Tab key cycle focus into the Preview p...

Re: Remove Search Everything... from Recycle Bin context men

The registry key for the Recycle Bin folder is: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E} but that won't help you. To accomplish what you want you'll need to move the Search Everything key from: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shell\Search Everything... to: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\...

Perhaps you have "Search > Enable Regex" enabled? If so then "mango" (space) "rocketship" would be interpreted as "mango rocketship", as you describe.

You can indeed disable the default Windows hotkeys selectively, if you don't mind tweaking the registry: http://voidtools.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=955#p8942 http://windowssecrets.com/forums/showthread.php/153042#post897852 http://geoffchappell.com/notes/windows/shell/explorer/globalhotkeys.htm ...

Re: Clipboard Manager based on Everything

It's not exactly what you're hoping for, but ClipX is a small, fast, and free clipboard utility for Windows with a simple "find as you type" search feature: http://bluemars.org/clipx/ I've been using it for years on many versions of Windows and it's excellent. The plugins are also worth checking out.
