Hi Stu,

Try the "Add" button to add files to the list of "selected files".
Please google on the internet for "regular expressions".
I know that a REGEXP are not the most intuitive thing around, however, it's very powerfull.
In case you all wonder, I'm building a wizard to enter REGEXPs.

All the best,

Matt

. any character
* repeated 1 or more times
^ beginning of line
$ end of line

Expression example: .*txt$
Means: all files ending with txt

Again: try google, play with it.

Hi Stu,

Enter a filename ("File or directory) and and a wildcard ("regular expression") and click the "Add" button.

This will add the directory and wildcard into "Selected Files" grid.

BTW, it does NOT make sense to add a wildcard to a filename. There would be absolutely no point to it would it?

To edit the file/directory/wildcard, select the line in the grid and click on the "Edit" button.

...

OK, I get it, you're pulling my leg are you ;-)

Cheers,
Matt

Stu,

Glad to hear it. The REGEXP wizard will take the sting out of most of the issues you had.
I'll try to get it into the 2.3.0 release next month.

All the best,

Matt
