Export only the filters created by myself?

Post by Biff » Thu Jun 08, 2017 5:02 pm

How could one export / import special filters only to avoid duplicates after importing? E.g. export only the filters created by myself?

It seems that all the filters are exported.
As the export file is a CSV file (plain text), you can open it in (for example) Notepad and delete all the lines you don't want to import later on.


"Plan B":
This CMD command creates per filter a .csv file, using the "all-in-one" export.csv as input.

Code: Select all

for /f "skip=1 delims=," %X in (export.csv) do @(findstr /b "Name, \"%X\" " export.csv >"export_%~X.csv")
Resulting (on my system) in following CSV files:

Code: Select all

export.csv
export_AUDIO.CSV
export_COMPRESSED.CSV
export_DOCUMENT.CSV
export_EVERYTHING.CSV
export_EXECUTABLE.CSV
export_FOLDER.CSV
export_PICTURE.CSV
export_VIDEO.CSV
And - for exampe- export_AUDIO.CSV looks like:

Code: Select all

Name,Case,Whole Word,Path,Diacritics,Regex,Search,Macro,Key
"AUDIO",0,0,0,1,0,"ext:aac;ac3;aif;aifc;aiff;au;cda;dts;fla;flac;it;m1a;m2a;m3u;m4a;mid;midi;mka;mod;mp2;mp3;mpa;ogg;ra;rmi;spc;rmi;snd;umx;voc;wav;wma;xm","audio",
Now you can import indivual filters.

Many thanks.

Yes, a good idea. I am not quite sure if I am (always) able to find out where a single filter starts and ends.

Yes, plan b sounds good, but I do not have any idea where / how to add that code. I guess somewhere here:

or
here: https://www.voidtools.com/support/every ... interface/

How do I have do change the code?

* in CDD.exe go to the folder where you saved export.cmd
* do a DIR *.CSV to make sure you are in the right folder (it should show you export.csv)
* when in that folder, paste the command posted earlier and run it.
* do a DIR *.CSV to make sure that the individual filters are created

That's it.

I will post a script later on (1 minute work, but got some other things to do). That way you can drag/drop export.csv to that script and that will create the individual CSV's for you.

Here you go (not tested ..)
EDIT: In the meantime I did test it. It works.

SPLIT_EXPORT.CMD

Code: Select all

@for /f "skip=1 usebackq delims=," %%X in (%1) do @(findstr /b "Name, \"%%X\" " %1 >"%~dnpn1_%%~X.csv")
Save as split_export.cmd and drag/drop the export.csv to this script.

(Could not attach .CMD script, so this is a workaround

I cannot find CDD.exe on my system...

...ah, a script, done very fast, many thanks.

...yes, I just tried it, too, works great. I see, the csv name must be "export", not e.g. "Filter", etc. And there may not be contained a space in the path to the folder containing SPLIT_EXPORT.CMD, e.g. Eigene Dateien/SPLIT_EXPORT.CMD

Great, very easily to handle. Thank you very much!

Oops, that's a lot of errors in one message. Thought I could do it quickly... Bad choice!

CDD.exe should read: CMD.exe

I updated the original SPLIT_EXPORT.cmd script. Please update your current version.
It now supports file- and directorynames that include spaces.
Furthermore: if you exported to a CSV named "My Filters (2017-06-08).csv", the script will create "My Filters (2017-06-08)_AUDIO.csv" etc.

Please note: if the exact same filename already exists, it will be overwritten. Backup the old version if needed.

Good luck!

Very sorry, I didn't intend to cheapen your work, it worked very well anyway, I appreciate it very much!

Yes, I just updated the cmd file and tried the new version, works perfectly.

Great, now it works even better.

Very many thanks, very happy about it.

That thought hadn't crossed my mind. At all ...

It's merely a reminder to myself: don't do multiple things at once and certainly not when you are in hurry! (TBH: this is not the first time I had to say that to myself...)

Glad you like it!
