File FiltersFile filters enable you to filter specific files during a search operation, i.e. exclude them from the search operation. The filtering methods inclusive and exclusive enable you to determine how filter texts are to be applied during a search operation.
InclusiveOnly files matching an activated filter text are included in the search operation. Example: If you specify the filter text "*.ini" only files with the ".ini" extension are processed during a search operation. All other files are filtered (= excluded) from the search operation.
ExclusiveAll the files matching a filter text are excluded from the search operation. Example: If you specify the filter text "*.ini", all files with the ".ini" extension are filtered, i.e. excluded from the search operation.
Filter ListThe filter list contains all of the filter texts set up for files. Each filter text can be enabled or disabled via its checkbox. Click on the button File Filters at the toolbar to open a menu to add new filters. Right-click an item at the filter list to edit or remove a filter.
Filter TextsComparisons using the filter text are always done using the file name. When a filter text contains a backslash (\) comparison is made with the entire path of the current file. Filters are not case-sensitive, meaning no distinction is made between uppercasing and lowercasing when performing comparisons. The filter text may contain various wildcards and Windows environment variables. You can specify multiple file filters using the special character '|' as a separator.
