Customize file path appearance in subtext?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

The file path served in the subtext after a regular search is of course very helpful.


However, especially for files in shared drivers, the initial part of the path can be long and take most of the space (e.g. '~/OneDrive - Very long hard drive name/Current Projects...', making the subtext less informative.


I was wondering if there is a way to 1) abbreviate the file path to show only the end of it (e.g. .../Projects/myfile.txt), or 2) parse the file path string to replace some folders with '...';  or perhaps 3) show the subtext on 2 rows?

Hello, I wanted to try again to solve this problem.

More generally, is there a way to customize the subtext in the file search results with some other metadata? For example, holding option would show file creation date in the subtext.
