Button to clean up file name in search box

Post by Rene » Wed Oct 17, 2018 6:17 am

Hello there,

i think the title says it all.

When we copy&paste a file name in search box, could we please get a cleanup button, like in emule, to remove dots and dashes, etc from the name ?

Twould be twerrific !

ps: where are we with my suggestion of adding the (offline) disk labels in the database ?

I'll consider an optional toolbar button to do this, thanks for the suggestion.
I've also added Ctrl + Shift + V to paste the clipboard contents with punctuation and symbols replaced with spaces for the next version of Everything.

Related, viewtopic.php?t=5929.
I use the bookmarklet method to filter "noise" characters from select web page strings that are then sent to Everything search.

(filter ignore replace javascript)
