1. In Advanced Search, allow the folder browser to be mutli select and then return the list delimited with the pipe | character.

2. In Tools / Options / Folders, allow the folder browser to be mutli select and then return the list vertically.

Multiple folder selection is on my TODO list.
I imagine this would be some sort of treeview with checkboxes.
In Tools / Options / Folders, allow the folder browser to be mutli select and then return the list vertically.
Added to my TODO list.

Thanks for the suggestions.

I was googling and found this interesting piece of c# code in a Stack Overflow thread Browse Multiple folders using FolderBrowserDialog in windows application: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/122 ... pplication. See the response posted by IRJSK answered Feb 16 '18 at 10:25. I attached it as a Visual Studio C# solution, if you are interested. He is doing some pretty low level stuff. Enjoy...

Or ..
Change the caption of the Browse button to Next Folder to add extra folders that way.

(just a thought ..)
