    Can we make the choice initially to choose whether to index the folder or entire pc? Also, have a configurable menu to switch incase when required

    As soon as i launched the current beta version everything is getting indexed which i don’t want to go

    I want to index only few folder or a folder and it’s sub-folders and not entire PC

    Hello, please follow the steps below:
    1. Run Anytxt, Tools -> Index Manager -> File Type, and edit the index rules (include path and exclude path);
    2. Stop Anytxt Index Service and exit the Anytxt program completely;
    3. Enter the Anytxt installation directory and delete C.db, D.db…;
    4. Run Anytxt, it will re-index according to the new rules.
    This is how I did it, hope it helps.

    Hi, Joseph.
    极客’s steps are correct. Anytxt is a free software developed in my spare time. I am busy recently and I couldn’t reply in time, sorry. Thank you for 极客’s reply.

    Hi, Fibonacci.
    Of course you can use DOCFETCHER, that is your freedom. Also, FileLocator, Lookeen Desktop Search, Copernic Desktop Search Lite…are also good tools.

    Home users of Calibre which is capable of adding thousands of books to a home library might be well alerted to exclude the path to the Calibre Library folder least AnyText proceed to grapple with the thousands of books in a variety of formats.  The exclusion list would seem to require exclusion by file type.  So, it seems that the Calibre Library ought at least be excluded by .epub and .pdf file types if not .txt and .mobi.  And it appears that such exclusions would have to be individually made by file type in the Tools section of AnyText.   If I am wrong, please advise.   I can easily imagine a scenario where I am looking up a name such as Robert and AnyText pulling up hundreds if not thousands of the entry of that name from Calibre Library texts.  Pardon if I have missed an easy solution.
