#1 Find in files with excluded folder not working?

Posted by: knulo | Date: 2020-11-13 18:25 | IP: IP Logged

Hello Jan,

great work to develop and enhance this powerful editor I use for years - thanks a lot!

According to hints in that forum I entered

'.cvsignore;vssver.scc;.git;Z:\phptest\media'
or
'.cvsignore;vssver.scc;.git;Z:\phptest\media\*'

under 'Settings => Files and directories' in the 'Ignore files' field.

I want to prevent searching the 'media' folder and its subfolders (where are a bunch of subfolders and files, but only pdfs and images - I assume no hits there!)

But when I use the 'Search in files' function, the 'media' folders are also checked. And yes, I could exclude '*.jpg'... '*.pdf' but then some 'index.php' will nevertheless checked.

Do I something wrong or is the exclusion of folders and subfolders impossible in that way?

Looking forward to get some hints to succeed with that. winking smiley

Kind regards from Potsdam (Germany)
Knut

Hi Jan,

boah! Thumbs up for the quick response!

But sorry: that does also not work:
.cvsignore;vssver.scc;.git;media

Or do I get you wrong?

EDIT:
Yes - i missed the dot at the end! Now it works fine - thank you!

Regards
Knut
