~ Save search results to TXT file ? ~

#1 Post by FreeCommanderRider » 22.10.2015, 00:42

How may I save the search results to a TXT file ? :?:

I see the copy icon on the menu icon bar above result but unable to utilize it. ( Does nothing cannot paste ) :?

I would like to save the result of a search into a .txt file preferably with same columns. :idea:

Thanks

Make folder/file list function was implemented in build 687 and is currently available only in the beta channel.

@jobby_toss
'Make folder/file list...' function doesn't work in 'Search files/folders'
I tried a workaround for that
I was searching for *.zip files in a folder, 2 files were found (sony.ZIP and wcx_Total7zip_updated_till_7zip_15.09.zip from folder C:\!!). In 'Search files/folders' I selected 'Files' - 'Export to file container' - 'Export all items'
After that I saw 2 files in TmpFileContainer-1.fcc

Here is content of that file container
#FreeCommander file cart
C:\!!\sony.ZIP
C:\!!\wcx_Total7zip_updated_till_7zip_15.09.zip

Selected 'Folder' - 'Make folder/file list...'
Defult path was C:\DOCUME~1\<USER PROFILE>\LOCALS~1\Temp\FileList.txt (why paths are shown in old 8.3 format???)
Pressed 'Run' button
'FileList.txt' was created
BUT only first file with path from original folder (as you remember in file container there were 2 files!!!) was listed:

FreeCommander - Folder list 22.10.2015 20:31:03

[dm] [attr] [s_bytes] [ne]
2003-04-28 06-26-06 A------- 111 430 sony.ZIP
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Folder: "!!" Number of files: 1 Size of files: 111 430

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Summary - Folders: 0 Files: 1 Size of files: 111 430 Byte(s)

So there is a bug in 'Make folder/file list...' for file containers!

@Timon: Please, select all files in container before using Make folder/file list... function. It might be a bug, I don't know.

How may I save the search results to a TXT file ?
In "Search files/folders" dialog use first the function File->Export to file container->Export all items.
In file container view switch to detail view, select all items and use Edit->Copy details to clipboard.
Open the text editor and paste the clipboard.

There is no need to select all files in a NORMAL folder before using Make folder/file list... function.
I think, that for file container it should work the same way.
But you are absolutely right - if files in container are selected, they are listed in FileList.txt

@Marek

It's a good workaround. But @FreeCommanderRider requested

Of course, detail view could be changed...

Seems like an easy implemented feature.

Just create a TXT file of the search result similar in format allowing a simply search (F3) of txt file in notepad. :idea:
