Is it possible to search only folders using a specific operator

Recommended Posts

Often I'm just looking for a folder, but get files (and other stuff too) that have a similar name as search results. I'm looking for a solution to use a specific operator to only search for folders.

Hi Heini,

 

This is a perfect task for workflows. You can create a workflow using a File Filter object attached to an Open File object. 

 

Here's a File Filter tutorial for images you can use as guidance (replacing the file type to search with folders instead):

Let me know how you get on :)

 

Cheers,

Vero
