dupe_lines show wrong line if multiple properties specified

Post by bit »

I want to find files of dupe ext and then sort by path in each dupe group.

Code: Select all

file: z: dupe:ext   sort:ext;path
However the addtional sort will break dupe_lines. It now adds lines on all rows.

Looks like a bug introduced in recent versions.

Currently, the dupe lines are shown from the current sort (not the dupe properties).

It was the same in previous versions.
Previous version only used first sort property, so it may have worked out.


Intended usage of dupe lines:
Right click the size column -> Find Size Duplicates
---Dupe lines are shown for size duplicates.
Sort by path
---Results still include your duplicated sizes.
---Results are now sorted by path.
---Dupe lines are shown for different paths (not different sizes)



I'll look into using the dupe properties instead of the current sort for the dupe lines.

"dupe_lines" should be added only to differentiate each dupe group.

My use case:
- find files dupes on size
- for each dupe group (same size file), sort them by ext or path, so I can easily tell which one is to be kept (backups) or to be deleted.

Under such case, the colors for dupe groups are works fine, but "dupe_lines" not works as its name implies.

And we have "group_lines", looks pretty much the same effect.

Hope it will be improved.

the current sort
Just to note, that also includes Advanced Sort (but the 2 [or 3] sorts selections are AND'ed to determine the sort dupe_lines).
(So if you Advanced Sort; Size & Path, that would find duplicated size files, dupe_lines'd - within the same directory.)

Everything 1.5.0.1368a improves dupe lines.



Everything will now use only the dupe properties if the current sort starts with the same properties.

For example, Everything will only show dupe lines for ext with the following search:

dupe:ext sort:ext;path



The same applies to right-clicking a column and click Find property dupe, then changing the sort.
You can set a secondary sort with Shift.
This secondary sort is no longer consider when showing dupe lines.



Technically, dupe lines and group lines are the same.
dupe lines will override group lines if you are using a dupe command (dupe: in the search or right-clicking a property and clicking find property duplicates).

Found a bug in 1370a about dupe_lines when using a "!" before the 2nd sort:

If I want to find all files with same size but different directories:

Code: Select all

z:\        dupe:size;!path 
result showing addtionanl lines inside this dupe group.
