Hi.
Hi :D
  • Save your filenames in a new text file ( let's say C:\list.txt )
  • Go to Menu:Search > Advanced Search
    (a dialog window opens).
  • Scroll all the way down until you see::
    2018-12-23 23_43_52-Window.png
  • In the Search for a list of file names: box browse to your C:\list.txt
    ( Now you will see the expanded list in that box, like: 20170312_114100.jpg|20170312_114105.jpg| .....)
  • Click OK
  • Done.
You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post.

Alternately, if you're in a hurry and it's a simple list of files, assuming this is with always the same file extensions, inside a text editor, with what you quoted before, you could
- run a search-and-replace for the extensions .jpg and .pdf (nothing else, right?) and replace them with [ | ] (space, vertical bar alt-grey-6 on windows keyboards, space)
- control-J to have everything you selected (you'll have to select it) in a single line (assuming it's a text editor recognizing the Control-J shortcut, it's to remove line endings and stick everything together in a single line, most advanced editors should take it)
- remove the final | separator (end it with one of the file names)
- and paste that line into Everything

Edit: adding that precision, don't finish the list with another | , remove the last one, or the search will fail with funny results (as it will be understood "search for this file, this file, this file... and EVERYTHING ELSE ON THE MACHIIIIIIINE :D )
Edit2: adding the need to select everything before control-J and what control-J does

Everything filelist search doesn't require spaces, Just | for file separation.
- control-J to have it all in a single line
Can you please tell me what this shortcut key do?

Thanks.

[Note: I'm not intend to criticize, just curious]

Ah, I didn't know. I'll still add those spaces for reading convenience, but, eh, it's good to know, thanks ^^

Removes line endings, agglomerate everything selected in a single line, precisely :)

Thanks.

For anyone wondering, @Oliverh is talking about Notepad++.
But before pressing Control+J (Join lines), Select all the text.

It's worked in every editor I used, so I assumed control-J was a universal shortcut :mrgreen:

I found that Everything doesn't support UTF-8 with BOM list file. In this case, the first file in the list will not be found.

I have added UTF-8 BOM support for txt files for the next version of Everything.

Everything will ignore the UTF-8 BOM in efu or csv files.

Thanks for bringing this to my attention.
