Filter not containing text

Postby parker » Sun Jan 05, 2020 6:58 pm

Hi

Ii want to rename files that do not contain the text "(". in other word, i want to rename files that do not contain an open parenthesis in the file name. In the mask box I put
*!(*
It returned nothing. and it should return a number of files.
What is the correct way to do this.

Thank You
parker

I'd think ? you'd have to use

12:Filters -> Condition

but I'm not familiar with it?


! is a NOT in Everything, not in BRU.
And now that you know the corrected format for your search - in Everything, !(, why not just drag those found files from Everything into BRU?
