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.
