[Feature Request] New option for Search files/folders

#1 Post by Timon » 16.09.2014, 18:08

I suggest to implement new option for Search files/folders (Alt-F7)
In Search in: -> Folders: now we have 3 options in dropdown list:
Browse...
All local drives
All drives

Suggest to add new option named "Tab paths" with dropdown list that shows paths from all opened tabs.

Isn't it easier to just activate the requested tab and then open the search dialog?: The tab path is preset.

What should you do if you want to search something ONLY in ALL opened tabs (for example, in 10 tabs). Currently you need to enter manually all the paths.

Such option already exist in MultiCommander and would be implemented in the next version of Total Commander. It really makes search easier.

Will be even better, if it would be possible to select all tabs from the active (inactive) panel or all opened tabs (from all panels) in one click.

I didn't know you wanted the paths of more than one tab for search. Now I understand your request, though I don't need this feature myself.

Great work was done in FC XE 674

Active panel: paths from all tabs
Inactive panel: paths from all tabs
Paths from all tabs

BUT found errors
For example, if folder name contains more than 1 word with space between words, for example, C:\0987654321 098 (in active or inactive panel) then incorrect path would be entered - "C:\0987654321 098" (path is entered with " " (quotes) and nothing would be found).

Problem still present in FC XE 675

In Active panel open folder C:\Program Files\FreeCommander XE\lng

Now in Search files/folders (Alt-F7) make search with following conditions:
File name: *.lng
Search in: -> Folders: -> Active panel: Paths from all tabs
There would be entered path "C:\Program Files\FreeCommander XE\lng" (with quotes)

After search is finished we see, that no files or folders were found and in Search log we see error messages
Syntax error in file name, folder name or volume label "C:\Program Files\FreeCommander XE\lng"\*
and
Syntax error in file name, folder name or volume label "C:\Program Files\FreeCommander XE\lng"\
