10.4: Removing directories from Find in Files

Recommended Posts



Is there a way of removing directories from the Find In Files feature? I have some old folders that do not have any code in them, and clog up the list of directories in the dropdown.

In the "Find in Files" dialog, there are two buttons next to the Directories edit box. The first one is "Browse for Folder" and does what you think, browses for and selects one folder and puts it in the Directories box.


The second button is "Folders and Groups" and allows you to build a custom list of folders and even have named groups of folders (for different projects, for example). So instead of excluding certain folders, you create a list of all folders you want to include, then uncheck "Include subdirectories."
