Exporting FARR result list using snagit TXT mode
« on: September 21, 2013, 09:23:43 AM »
Currently there is no option to export the results from the FARR window. I would have loved that option.
I tried to retrieve the data using ahk and nirsoft sysexporter, but could not get the info from the TNextgrid.

Snagit in txt capture mode helped to accomplish this task.

This works with very old versions of Snagit too [it is not freeware]

You first want to limit the number of columns and it is probably best to use small icons, each file on a separate line:

Start FARR options
  Program Options > Settings > Display Options
  Report Columns
    switch on/off extra columns
  Result Display style
    (.) small icon Report
Save FARR options.

Start a FARR search

Start Snagit config.
  Put Snagit in TXT capture mode
  Select the output format (file, clipboard,..)
Start selecting

Choose the FARR result window.
All visible lines from the file list will be copied.

Now you can use the file list in other programs to sort, journaling or create batch files
e.g. for backing up these files, etc...

Don't forget to restore your FARR display options and Snagit settings afterwards.
