dupe_lines vs case

Post by NotNull »

During a (case-insensitive) dupe comparison, dupe lines distinguishes between different cases.
There is something to say for doing it this way, but in my opinion it makes more sense to respect the case setting.

Thanks for the issue report NotNull,

Everything is incorrectly showing the dupe line between items when only the case has changed.

This issue will be fixed in the next alpha update.

(Actually that helped to point out to me files that were the same, but where I had changed case of 1 file but not its' backup version ;-).)

Yes, it was. According to the Search Modifier documentation:
Prefix a search modifier with :: to enable it globally.
For example, to enable match case for the rest of the search:
::case: FOO BAR

Everything 1.5.0.1355a makes the following changes:

dupe lines are now case insensitive.

To enable case sensitive dupe lines:
  • In Everything 1.5, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the Advanced tab on the left.
  • To the right of Show settings containing, search for:
    group
  • Select group_match_case.
  • Set the value to: true
  • Click OK.
The case sensitive settings specified in the dupe command is ignored for dupe lines.
Dupe lines are shown for the current sort, not the current dupe command.

Added group_match_case ini setting.



Added group_lines ini setting.
This can be enabled to always show group lines, not just when using dupe:

To always show group lines:
  • In Everything 1.5, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the Advanced tab on the left.
  • To the right of Show settings containing, search for:
    group
  • Select group_lines.
  • Set the value to: true
  • Click OK.
This might be useful when sorting by extension or path.
Can also be enabled by including the following in your search:
group-lines:



distinct: without any properties specified will now find distinct names.
Same with unique:



Fixed an issue with case:dupe:
This wasn't working at all before..
Everything will now correctly case sort when using case:dupe: (for most property types: name, extension, path, secondary sorts, regmatches and columns 0-f)

Nice!!

Something I noticed:
When Full row select is unchecked (Options > Results), the dupe line will only be shown in the name column, even if dupes are shown for other properties.

Would it be possible to make the dupe line 'full row' anyway?
(aklternative would be to (temporary) enable Full row select; that is what I do at the moment. No big deal)

I have put on my TODO list to highlight the entire row.

Thank you for the suggestion.

Everything 1.5.0.1356a adds support for case: search modifier to sort:

For example:

A normal Name sort will look like:

USA C:\A-folder
usa C:\A-folder
USA C:\B-folder
usa C:\B-folder

case:sort:name

will show the results as:

USA C:\A-folder
USA C:\B-folder
usa C:\A-folder
usa C:\B-folder



To find files where the case changes, include the following in your search:

case:distinct: dupe:

(finds case sensitive distinct items first, then finds case insensitive duplicated items)



Everything 1.5.0.1356a also fixes an issue with the property being passed to distinct: when using distinctsort:
Everything will now use the property specified in distinct: instead of the property specified in distinctsort:



The dupe line will now fill the entire row when full row select is disabled.

case:distinct: dupe:

This fits my use case a bit better:
case:distinct: dupe:name;size file:

Everything 1.5.0.1360a makes a minor change to group_match_case.

group_match_case can now be one of the following values:
  • 0 = use current sort match case value (default)
  • 1 = match case
  • 2 = ignore case
