Can I create a list of my aliases?


Apologies if this has been asked and answered before, but...

Is there any way to render a list of my aliases into a .txt or .rtf file, together with shortcuts for each, so that I have a ready reference of the many I have created, and do not have to scan laboriously through myaliases.alias when I forget how to access one?


Open the FARR options window, click "aliases" in the left pane list and select myaliases.alias in the dropdown. There you get list of aliases with one column each for alias name, regular expression and score.

Right click in that list and click "export" to get another window with a plaintext list in another format. Click that list and do ctrl+A to select all and then Ctrl+C to copy to clipboard. Paste into Notepad.

Though the formatting of that plaintext list is very compact so it is pretty difficult to get an overview of your aliases from reading it I think. Here is an example of what one line in the list can look like

--- ---1000>>>virtualbox>->C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\VirtualBox.exe>n>C:\virtualbox_shared>+>^(?:virt|virtu|virtua|virtualvbox)$

Thanks, Nod5. That's done the trick. Most appreciative!

Or type: agroups

You can also edit and print the .alias files in the alias directory; all aliases are stored in standard human readable xml files.
