Why does this filter not show that folder?

Why does this find the folder:

And why does this filter ("Film") not show that folder:

Filter "Film" (excerpt):

Code: Select all

 | "V:\Filme\" | "V:\Konzerte\" | "T:\Konzerte\" | "T:\Filme\" | "Z:\Filme\" | "H:\Filme\" | "H:\Konzerte\" | "I:\Eigene Dateien\Videos\2.Serien\" ext:3g2;3gp;3gp2;3gpp;amr;amv;asf;avi;bdmv;bik;d2v;divx;drc;dsa;dsm;dss;dsv;evo;f4v;flc;fli;flic;flv;hdmov;ifo;ivf;m1v;m2p;m2t;m2ts;m2v;m4b;m4p;m4v;mkv;mp2v;mp4;mp4v;mpe;mpeg;mpg;mpls;mpv2;mpv4;mov;mts;ogm;ogv;pss;pva;qt;ram;ratdvd;rm;rmm;rmvb;roq;rpm;smil;smk;swf;tp;tpr;ts;vob;vp6;webm;wm;wmp;wmv;iso;disc;srt;sub;idx;txt

Because of the ext: ....... part : none of those extensions matches
(ext: doesn't work on folders at all, btw)



You can shorten (this part of) your filter to:

Code: Select all

| ":\Filme\" | ":\Konzerte\" |  "I:\Eigene Dateien\Videos\2.Serien\"    video: | ext:iso;disc;srt;sub;idx;txt | folder:
(and that includes folder: to also search for folders)

Ah yes, the extensions, so there is no way to include the folders when keeping those extensions?

Thank you, that would be very good and shorten the content (14 lines in Notepad++) of the filter very much. So this works if there is not any folder named "Konzerte" and / or "Filme" which should be excluded from the results? Or, if there were such folders I could exclude them in another way, I guess, may be with a "!" or so before or after the path in the filter.

And how could I shorten this: "I:\Eigene Dateien\Videos\2.Serien\"
Like that: "\2.Serien\"

And could I somehow make the filter content a bit clearer? Order the paths / folders alphabetically and / or in columns or so?

14 lines ?!? :shock:

If you post your (complete) Filme filter here, I and all the other good people here can take a look at it to optimize it.

( Alternatively, you could send it to me directly)
