Hello,

What exactly is the order in which FARR searches directories?

Is there some weighing taking the assigned points into account?

I ask this because I have the feeling that this is not the case. I have a special directory (e.g., D:\bin) which contains scripts which I write, but if I input the name of a newly added one, it seems as if FARR starts to search in specified folders on C:\, like Program Files or WINNT.

For me, it would seem logical that the points assigned to directories would result in an according ordering of search paths.

Cheers,

Christian

Search order is determined by the order listed in the "Search Folders" tab -- you can drag and drop to re-order them.
You specify the points to bias items found in each folder in that tab as well.

Dear mouser,

Ah, ok. My heart is bleeding to use drag and drop in such a keyboard-centric application though...  Wink

Cheers,

Christian
