|Working with File list
File list give you ability to preview
synchronization task, select which files you want to copy, change
direction if you find it more suitable etc.
One of the new features in version 3 is ability to
select multiple files in files list. However it could a bit
confusing first time - now we have 2 selection modes:
- Synchronization marks - permanent selection, shown with
checkboxes on the left side of the list. These marks defines
whether file will be copied during synchronization process. You can
toggle these marks by clicking on checkboxes or with SPACE key.
- Temporary selection - this selection is similar to files
selection in Windows Explorer. You can use it to do group
operations: toggle synchronization marks, change direction, invoke
DoItNow function etc. Files with such selection are highlighted
with different color.
Another new addition is collapsible folders in file
list. It allows your to hide some files from list to simplify your
work. To toggle folder state click plus\minus sign next to folder
name. You can quickly toggle all folders state in menu Ctrl + Gray / shortcut.
||By default files in collapsed folders are synchronized just as
usual. In some cases you may find it good to change this behaviour
to ignore files in closed folders. You can change this setting in
|For each folder in file list Synchronize It! displays
number of files in this folder to be copied in each direction. Note
that if you have chosen to ignore files in collapsed folders,
closed folders will not show any stats.
Filter feature helps you to limit files listed (and
processed!) by several rules:
- By place:
- Source only;
- Target only;
- Matching only;
- By suggested file operation:
- copy to source;
- copy to target;
Note that folders statistics numbers will change when you apply
filters to reflect new quantity of files in work.
||Files, which were filtered out and are not visible, will NOT be
