Longest/Shortest folder name vs. Deepest/Shallowest structure

Post by Gorton » Mon Jul 20, 2020 2:18 am

Hi,

Suggestion for the enhancing the Selection Assistant:

Under Mark by file/folder name, add 2 options:

- Deepest folder depth in each group
- Shallowest folder depth in each group

Currently, the Longest and Shortest folder name in each group selects by character string length of the pathname, which is useful at times, but I think that directory depth would also be very useful.

Example: a\b\c\d (4 deep) is currently considered to be shorter than aaaaaaaa\bbbbbbbbbb\ccccccccc (3 deep). It would be occasionally useful to consider the depth instead of the string length when pruning large directories.
