Using Include and Exclude

User Image

Hi there,

I like this app because it shows the line where it finds the match!

If I want to exclude zip and sql files in a search how would I do it? (*.sql, *.zip doesn't exclude both, only the last one).

Just use:


Use the | character to separate multiple inclusions or exclusions.

I'm a lazy touch-typist, and wonder if it at some point it could be an option to use a comma or semi-colon to seperate search terms? At least as far as files are concerned, Windows does not allow them - so it shouldn't cause any difficulties there.

Just an idea.

Thanks again for the cool software.

Thank you for the suggestion, but I think I am going to stick with the | symbol for now. If I changed it now it would break people's saved values, and adding a secondary value might be confusing.
