Reverse filtering possible?


#1

Say I have filtered files within a folder containing a specific text (e.g. 'converted' being added to the file names)
But now I want to select the files that do nót have 'converted' added,i.e. a kind of reverse selection, or selection on files nót having converted in the name.

How do I do that?

Thanks.

Do you mean in the filter bar?

If you have say *.txt the opposite would be ~(*.txt)


#3

Ah, right!
Many thanks indeed!

Wouldn't have thought about that...
(Did try the '#' character and '<>' though)

Probably it is documented somewhere.

Thanks again.

no problem.
Its documented here Pattern Matching Syntax

Ahum . . .:blush:

Went thru the Filter Bar Help-page and obviously didn't pay attention to the line "The filter string uses the standard pattern matching syntax" in
