Exclude files in directory compare

Post by Crispness » Fri Aug 07, 2020 7:06 pm

How do i add another file ('thumbs.db') to the exclude list when performing a directory comparison?

It already has '.DS_Store' in the field.

Do i just put a space between the 2 filenames?
Or a comma?
Or something else?

Hello,

If you hover over the combo box, you will see this tooltip message: "The patterns are comma separated, where * = any string, ? = any character". So, you should use commas.

Note that we use tooltips in many other places in Oxygen for extra information. Also, the userguide is another good resource for this kind of information.

Best wishes,
