Re: Include files from folder in Results

Yes, its hard to understand the goal.. Figured I'd jump in to save everyone the guess work. At first I thought you wanted both matching and non-matching names? but needed a way to sort them as such? But for that, you'd need to make a file-list first, so you could sort by "File List Filename". Here's...

Re: Search for TIF grayscale images

Sorry, but I dont know the app well enough for any workarounds, but I'm pretty sure it doesnt index GrayScale metadata?? You could create a list of your GrayScale .tiff's for everything to read.. That'd give you something to filter them by. If you have exiftool, the command would be like: exiftool -...

Re: how to restrict my search to a specific folder without having to type the full path?

Sorry, I didnt catch the "see all contents" part, so Froggie's last post is best for that.
Just throw in files: if you dont wanna see SubFolderNames directly beneath Apple.
Cheers.

Re: how to restrict my search to a specific folder without having to type the full path?

For the regexers out there: regex:C:.*\\apple\\resume\.[a-z]{3,4}$
Foldername must be Apple (not Apple2, etc).. Names must be like "Resume.ext" (3-or-4 chars in extension).
No need to worry about SubFolders.. Cheers!

Re: Help please with regex

Hi, just wanted to note that some of the regexes could match names like abcCIM0001.jpg or CIM0001xyz.jpg
If its important to filter such names, you can use things like:
regex:"D:.*\\CIMG[0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9]\.(jpg|jpeg)$"
regex:"D:.*\\CIMG[0-9]{4}\.jpe{0,1}g$"

Re: Regex: Find all non-comment, non empty lines

If it helps readability, you can always throw ORs into the LookAhead with \s.
^(?!\s*;|\s*$) should give the same results.

Re: Regex: \ or \\

Hi.. As written, there's no problem with unicode filenames. I threw the comment in there for others, incase they wanted to do something else with the converted-string. It's really just a warning.. You never know how someone will take a batch, & mod it to suit their own needs. Dont quote me on this, ...

Re: Regex: \ or \\

For an easy way to put regex-converted FolderPaths into the search-box: I wrote a batch that lets you right-click a folder, choose 'RegexInEverything' to do just that. You just need to create a reg-key that points to the batch's location, & you're good to go: There's only 2 files you need to create:...

Re: The regular expression contains an unspecified Perl extension error.

Hi.. Unfortunately (? u ) is not a valid Perl extension for either PCRE or PCRE2. But the format: \x{###} suffices for matching u nicodes (leading 0's can be omitted). Same thing with \u for uppers-only and \l for lowers-only (neither PCRE/PCRE2). But you can always use (? - i) to terminate (?i) 's ...

@NotNull: Thanks, I didnt realise that.. In fact, I thought you were pulling my leg with that 'bulk-rename' bit.

Portable Versions: NO files by default

Hi I tried several portable versions of Everything, but never once managed to see any files by default . When the app ran a 1st-time, it did always create an Everything.ini upon exiting, but never an Everything.db Searching for * or .* (with regex-enabled) never yeilded any results in the file-list....
