Feature request: Search profiles

Hi

I have found this recently but I find it not to be as user friendly as it can be so therefore this request.

I would like to propose a new setting called profiles.
Some of the profiles can be predefined profiles that can't be changed or deleted but copied as templates for custom/user made profiles.
Why? For new users or for users that doesn't use the FileSeek application frequently it can be difficult to remember what parameters to use and what settings to change. Advanced users may find it useful to make their own profiles for different purposes. As It is now I have to make a file as a quick guide to save all the files I wish to include or exclude depending on different search locations and what I'm searching for.

Examples:

a) "Search for text string inside of files"
path: All harddrives
Include: *.txt|*.rtf|*.nfo etc
Exclude: *.exe|*.mov|*.avi|*.mp3 etc
Query: Cursor should be placed in this field when the filter is selected so you can just type the search string and press the Search button
And appropriate other settings

b)"Search for files or folders"
path: All hard drives
Include: *.*
And appropriate other settings

To create a user profile it should be possible to copy an existing profile or start with a blank one and the should be stored with names.
I would create profiles like this
* - Inside source code files at j:\Projects\
* - Files or folders at \\Server\Movies
etc

Interesting idea HeRmAN1! I'll add this to our feature request, and if we're able to implement it in the future, we'll be sure to post an update.

Thanks!
