Exclude directories from the search
Alexandr Stepanov last edited by A Former User
Ищу вхождение слова в текстовых файлах. Поиск идет в директории с поддиректориями.
Подскажите пожалуйста, как исключить некоторые поддиректории из поиска ?
edit from moderator: (translated from g.translator) :
I am entering words in text files. Search is in a directory with subdirectories.
Please tell me how to exclude certain subdirectories from the search?

Hello, Alexandr Stepanov
I, first, translated your Russian text in English, with Google !
AFAIK, in the Find in Files dialog of N++ ( CTRL + SHIFT + F ), you can add several filters as, for instance,
But, unfortunately, you can’t write several paths in the directory field nor exclude some paths from search.
I’m agree with you : it could be a nice improvement, in future releases.
For instance, the text
C:\_683\ C:\_681\ C:\_679 | C:\_681\localization, in Directory field, would search :
In the C:\_683\ folder, and its sub-directories, due to the last backslash
In the C:\_681\ folder, and its sub-directories, due to the last backslash, and except for the C:\_681\localization folder, written after the vertical line character
In the C:\_679 folder, ONLY, because NO backslash ends the path
Of course, if the In all sub-folders option was UNCHECKED, it would have priority, to the syntaxes above.
Right now, it’s still a dream :-((

+1 Having an exclude files AND exclude directories feature would be a great addition! For me it would work best if they worked similar to the “Filters:” box for files. That is, they would allow multiple entries with wildcards.
Being able to exclude file types is useful when you want to use *.* to search all types of files that you care about without having to specify each and every one.

It would be great to have this feature. Many times I was forced to use Total Commander search instead.

I’ve manually set my project’s .meteor folder to hidden so it will only be included when “In hidden folders” is checked.

Very clever solution, Indeed ! Thanks for sharing it :-) I haven’t thought of that simple and useful work-around, yet !
