How to filter files when selecting them ?


Home  Table of content

Description

Files being selected can be filtered based on their name and extension. For that purpose:
  1. Go to the Select files panel.
  2. Fill in the File filter text box with the appropriate value (see explanations below).
  3. Proceed with the file selection (see related topic).
FILE FILTERS USING WILDCARDS
Wildcards (* and ?) can be specified while specifying file filters:

- The filter '*.htm' will look for all files with an htm extension.
- The filter 'm*.txt' will look for all files starting with m and having a .txt extension.

The * will match any number of characters (any character).
The ? will match one single character (any character), for example:

- The filter 'm?.txt' will look for all files with a .txt extension and having a two letters filename starting with m (not counting the extension and path here).

COMBINING FILE FILTERS
File filters can be combined in one single search, just separate them with a semi-colon, e.g.:

- The filter '*.htm;m*.txt' will look for all files with extension .htm and for all files with extension .txt starting with the letter m.
