Re: load file list into scrap

[b]This is just a reminder!![/b] Nikos, please, please, PLEASE add the possibility to export AND import simple .txt, .cvs or other format files from/into scrap. This could take away a lot of frustration from a (non-sophisticated) user (like me). For the 2nd time I run into the same trap - tried to s...

runs like charm, maybe a bit slow when starting, but that's tolerable (espec. on a Beta version)

BUT: the fact that admin privs are needed to run the license manager - it's a real pain.

PLEASE - no special privileges to enter a license key!!

Wish: enhancement of 'find'

about find hyperfilters: when using 'containing text' group, I'd like to have another window or column showing the occurrence of each find result, together with its line number. :roll: Just to make my own sarcasm - I know there's a whole bunch of search tools available (freeware too) providing just ...

DOCX files seem to consist of a structure of PK-zipped .XML files,
don't think searching for text makes sense there.

A simple example: 1) create a file, let's say foo.txt 2) create a color coding rule:  file modified since last 2 min,  give it a color and a name, move it to the top of color coding list 3) check enable and hit okay - the file is color coded as expected 4) wait the 2 min (or a bit longer to be sure....

When adding new rules one goes thru the customize->color coding cycle anyway - so there's a refresh done.
The "age as it happens" - that's the interesting point.
I've no need for an automatic changing of the age coding color, but it would be nice to have it included in the refresh command.

I love the  date/time related color coding, but I see one little annoyance:

How to do a refresh?

A simple ctrl-r doesn't influence the color coding,
I have to go thru Customize->Color Coding and hit the Okay Button to refresh.
Intentionally? Or did I miss a hidden setting?

I'd prefer X2 not bound to any PC, drive, interface, directory, NTFS right etc I don't mind if personalized to me - even PW protected at every startup. X2 could be renewed when I think I urgently need a newer version with new features....as long as the $10 paying frequency is not out of proportion R...

RickyF: Lookout v1.3 is still available from here: http://www.chip.de/downloads/c1_downloads_13013850.html Nikos: I don't like those full blown indexer search engines, they eat up too much resources (see RickyF).

Nikos

- no worries, no complains!!

I simply feel more comfortable with the English version
(maybe I'm too old to get used to localization, the IT-part of the
brain always thinks in English after about 35 years in business...)
