Selecting similar files

Select one or more files, and then use Select similar... to add all similar files to current selection.

Selection templates

Selection templates editor You can use named selection templates to select or deselect files. Use Create Template... command to save current selection as a named template. Edit Templates... command opens a simple dialog with all defined templates listed in a tree view. There you can edit or delete them.


Summary utility Summary options Selection Summary command starts a summary counting utility. It counts how many files are selected including subdirectories and count types of these files.

You can adjust these settings by using Advanced Selection Summary...
