Everything is back -- with 1.3 beta
« on: January 05, 2013, 09:06:06 AM »
The free and amazingly quick search tool Everything has a new beta out - the first new release in around 4 years I think.  :Thmbsup:

Thanks for the heads-up. I love Everything. But it seems that there are some issues with the beta? I'm not sure I understand what is meant by "drop down filter" having been removed here (http://forum.voidtoo...f=2&t=1553#p4710), but if it's the actual search box that's gone and its filtering action, then I may stick with the current version, as I love that feature.

This is what the GUI looks like now.

The developer also writes that he/she wants to make Everything open source.

Thanks for that. In the meantime I figured out that the "filter" refers to the "Tools > Options > Exclude > Add filters" functionality, which isn't something I use anyway.

Ok. It is still possible to filter out folders from the matches using the ! command when match path is active. For example, the search "football !E:" excludes "E:\football.txt" and "E:\folder\football.txt" but includes "C:\football.txt" in the match list.

I use autohotkey to quickly toggle such "filters" on/off. Here it is if anyone has use for it. update: I improved the script.

#IfWinActive, ahk_class EVERYTHING
F12::
string = !"E:\test folder\"
toggle()
return

F11::
string = "ext:mp3"
toggle()
return

toggle() {
global
ControlGetText, x, Edit1, A
if x contains %string%%A_space%
 StringReplace, x, x, %string%%A_space%,,
else if x contains %string%
 StringReplace, x, x, %string%,,
else
  x = %string% %x%
 ControlSetText, Edit1, %x%, A
ControlFocus, Edit1, A
send {end}
}
#IfWinActive

Thanks for the heads-up, too! Today there's a new version.

I appreciate especially the new "match diacritics" feature, and indication of active search options on the status bar. Great tool as always!

Great News. I noticed two useful new options:

Sort date descending first
Sort size descending first

I hope the developer adds an option to mix files and folders together.
