  • BC4 filters

    I am giving BC4 a try for the first time now.
    In the filter box I have set: *.ini; *.dat

    I discovered it is wrong, I would expect the refresh button to then apply the filters, i.e. only the ini and dat files to show up, but one needs to hit enter there.

    Thanks. This is on our wishlist to implement a feature like this. For now, you do need to hit Enter to commit the filter.

      But the enter behaviour has to be available, too. After a full folder comparision I want to filter groups of some file types (one or more at several steps) on the result of the previous comparision without performing a possibly timeconsuming comparision again.

        This would be on a plain Refresh, not a Full Refresh, so any existing content comparisons would stay in place.

        Edit: And yes, the current behavior would stay as well. This change would just be another way to apply uncommitted filters.

          Just looking at Rodolfos bad mood-screenshot I think of an additional load-button like the 'enter path here'-confirmation for the heavy mouse-users of us (but I'm sticked at the keyboard).

          I'm not really using the plain refresh, but Full Refresh or Selection Refresh. From BC3 experience I would say a plain refresh takes more time than applying a new file filter by hitting enter.
