When the user wants to use the Text displayed in the Results of Everything, he find it's not so simple task. As seen above, exporting to CSV table, doesn't make the life easier (especially if you don't know how "To correctly open UTF-8 CSV files in Excel:").void wrote:Stamimail wrote:BTW. export to csv doesn't give you to export selected files in Results.
Exporting will always export all the current results, never the selection.Also, there are many columns with values that doesn't have meaning for the simple user. The simple user need the values in the same Format as in Everything.
Please make sure you export as CSV.
The values will appear almost exactly as they do in Everything.
Size is formatted without commas.
Dates are formated with ISO8601: YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS.
Excel should have no issue parsing these values.Also, there is a problem with displaying unicode characters in Excel by this method.
Everything exports CSV as UTF-8.
To correctly open UTF-8 CSV files in Excel:
- In Excel, from the Data menu, from the Import External Data submenu, click Import data....
- Select your exported csv and click Open.
- Change File origin to 65001 : Unicode (UTF-8).
- Click Next.
- Check Comma.
- Click Next.
- Click Finish.
- Click OK to put the data in the existing worksheet at $A$1.
By the words "Text Mode" I mean, to have the Results pane like a built-it spreadsheet, where you can copy/edit Text. But I guess it's not simple thing to do.
Something like Textify tool can't help here, since you usually want to copy multiple "cells".
I can say that I found a convenient solution (but still it's a workaround) to copy files names (without adding entries in Context Menu). For this task I do:
1. Select files in Results
2. F2 (Rename)
3. Copy the Text in the TextBox
This is much easier way than exporting, but I didn't find such solution for the other Text.
