Display only the files from a TXT/CSV list

Post by w64bit » Sat Oct 03, 2020 12:39 pm

If I have a TXT/CSV list of files (full path + name) can it be loaded into Everything in order to display only these files?

Menu "Search" - "Advanced Search..." - Search for a list of file names: Button "Browse..."!
(If the path and filename is inserted by "paste", it will not work, i.e. only the filename is shown <*.txt>) ***)

TXT: Yes
CSV: No

It would be fine if one could paste the path and file name (e.g. C:\Everything\Test.txt) into the field with "paste",
instead of pressing the "Browse..." button.

Tried, but no result.
I have one file C:\Users\PC\Desktop\1.txt
containing
C:\Users\PC\Desktop\8.tif
C:\Users\PC\Desktop\9.tif
tif files are in the correct location.
I loaded txt into Everything an nothing is displayed.
It should display
8.tif
9.tif

For a CSV file with content of path + filename per line there is also a solution.
