Search for files

#1 Post by Lyal » 2019-11-11 07:07

It would be nice to have a server-side function to search for a file by name. Quite great, if you also have the function to search for text in the file. Is there anything similar planned in the next versions?

Searching for file names is already possible. Press F3 or menu "Server" - "Search remote files".

Searching for text inside files will never come, as it requires random file access (unless you want to download each and every file), which (S)FTP does not support.

Small correction: Searching within files does not require random access. It however still requires the entire file to be downloaded.
