Combine Filters

Post by jojoberlin » Sat Mar 23, 2019 7:11 am

Would it be possible to have a 2nd or 3rd Filter-Dropdown, so that multiple Filters could be combined?

(My apologies if that is already possible somehow, or if I'm the 47th to suggest this.. :? )

I'll consider a secondary filter bar, thanks for the suggestion.

You can combine filters by using filter macros.
Most of the predefined filters have a macro.

For example, the macro for Audio filter is audio:
when you type audio: in your search, it is replaced by the Audio filter's search, eg: ext:mp3;flac;...

You can find/edit filter macros from Search -> Organize Filters -> Select Filter -> Edit -> Macro

To combine filters, search for each filter macro separated by a |
For example, to search for audio or video files, search for:
audio:|video:
