More options for adding files to the "Find Similar Files" dialog

Post by ttfn »

Hello

It would be handy if the Find Simiar Files dialog allowed me to add files from a file listing (created from the Create/File Listing menu, or another program) rather that one at a time.

It would also be nice if I could add the currently selected/tagged files or files from the search results (from Tools/Search).

Thanks.

Thank you for your suggestion, ttfn. I know the "Find similar files" functionality but didn't know that you can add individual files and search for these.

Your suggestions (File list, Tagged files, ...) are good enhancements for the "Find similar" files dialog. This reminds me of an idea and vision I had many years ago: Unified way for creating file list. All dialogs that can handle multiple files should offer the same functionality for creating a file list (Drag & Drop, Add folder, Add file, ...) - including your two suggestions.
