File - Export

Post by programmablesoda » Thu Jun 24, 2021 2:00 pm

When I export to a filelist, I get seven fields of data that show up in the File List Editor.

I would like to have the fields be the same as the ones I have in the results, especially Path and MD5 (Thanks again for that!), but it would also be great to add the properties like length and longitude / latitude.

Hi,
  1. Right click on column header
  2. Click on "Add Columns..."
  3. Search: lat
  4. Click on the line: Latitude | Metadata | Latitude
  5. Click on button "OK"
    The column was added.
  6. Search: next column headings,... length, longitude -> repeat steps 4. ("Click on the line:") and 5.
  7. File - Export...

The filelist has a fixed format (at least for now).
Export your results as a CSV file instead (Save as type: CSV (Comma delimited) (*.csv)) to get all fields.


Note:
When exporting properties that have to be read from disk (i.e. not in Everything's database), only the properties of the files that are in view are being fetched and exported.
When you want to export those properties for all files, and not only the visible ones:

- press CTRL+A to select all files
- Menu:File > Read Extended Information CTRL+E
- Wait (see progress indicator on the status bar)
- Export the results as CSV file as described above.
