Flat view folder filtering?

this is the results of a FAYT search in a large folder

When FLATVIEW=On,Mixed is used this is the result

It is showing the correct amount of files but
instead of 5 dirs there are thousands which does increase the time for the flat view to finish 'flattening'. I shall flag this as a minor bug, correct me if I am wrong.

Look at the 2nd checkbox to the right of where you typed your filter.

But then make sure you understand what it does, and why it's off by default, by reading the manual page for it. :slight_smile:

Awesome, thanks :slight_smile: Though it still seems to be reading the contents of the unfiltered directory instead of just the 5 filtered folders.

It's usually better to use Tools > Find Files if you want to search for things under particular folders.
