Browser Filter supports matching in file or folder(s) above

Post by porg »

When browsing in flat view it would be very practical if you could not only match in the filename but in the entire path.
• I propose to have 4 icons next to the filter fields: folder, slash, file, sun/glasses
• They could take the following states as depicted in their tooltips:

Use Cases 👉 Solution with the new filter toggles

1) You want to exclude all files and sub-files residing in folders entitled "_" 👉 "Match in any folder above" not matching "_"

2) You want to only show files in folders entitled "_production" 👉 "Match in any folder above" matching "_production"

3) You want to only show files containing "final" or files being in a parent folder "final" 👉 "Match in parent folder" ON + "Match in file name" ON + Matching "final". Note: "Match in parent folder" and "Match in file name" are combined with a logical OR. Matches a file which contains "final" or whose parent folder contains "final". Not necessarily both!
