This is a feature request to have a toolbar, to be attached to either local or ftp site windows, that would allow regular expression based search patterns to find a file, a group of files, or folder within that directory and filter to show only those files found.
This regex filter toolbar would have to be an 'always active' filter and modify the currently listed files via a local cache of the directory as soon as characters are typed into this filter. Currently softwares like Directory Opus support this feature.
This regex filter toolbar should not include in its actions filtering of subdirectories, or files within subdirectories, but only what is listed.
This toolbar can also be settable as a preference option to work in 'AND' mode or 'OR' mode with existing 'Filename filters'
In addition, ( 2nd feature ) if a checkbox could be allowed next to all filenames or folders in a listing to manually select/override the regex filter selections using a mouse. These selections would be remembered prior to right clicking and adding to queue.
