File Filter

(available in EditPad Pro only)

EditPad Pro's Explorer Panel and FTP Panel allow you to filter the files they display. Showing only the files you're interested in makes it easier to work with folders containing large numbers of files.

The Explorer and FTP panels are not updated instantly while you edit the filters. To update the panel, either click on it with the mouse or press Enter while one of the filter drop-down lists has keyboard focus.

You can filter files based on their names in four ways:

In addition to filtering files based on their names, you can also filter files based on the date and time they were last modified.

When specifying a time period, EditPad Pro starts counting from the start of the current period. E.g. if you tell EditPad Pro to show files modified during the last two hours at half past three, EditPad Pro will show files modified at or after one o'clock, two hours before the start of the current hour.

Weeks start on Monday. If you tell EditPad Pro to show files modified during the last week on Wednesday the 14th, EditPad Pro will show files modified on or after Monday the 5th. The only exception to this rule is when you filter the files by a number of weeks on a Sunday. Then, EditPad Pro starts counting from the next Monday. The same filter on Sunday the 18th will have EditPad Pro show files modified on or after Monday the 12th.
