Hi

Is it possible to have multiple paths in one tab?

Define "multiple paths" in detail.

You can see all files in a directory and in its sub-directories together by switching into the so-called branch view by pressing CTRL+B. Pressing CTRL+B once more will disable branch view again.

It is indeed unclear what the actual question is, but guessing:
  • Menu:Commands > Search
  • Disable "Only search in selected directories/files"
  • Search for:
    ev: parent:"c:\folder1" | parent:"c:\folder2"
  • Start Search
  • Feed to Listbox
  • Optional: change the column layout of the search results to show the paths too
Note: Sorting didn't work as expected in my quick test.

Yes I tried <path1> | <path2> but tm will not accept that input in the path field in the search box.

UPDATE
Ha.. I thought tm used the panel windows as source. I didn't even see the "Search in.." field in the search box.. my bad

Ok so I get path not found error.. any thoughts on how to fix that?
It's on a remote server but still local network so path names are \\name\so\on

UPDATE
to do a multi path search, you use the ; sign. Then it works. Not |. But the search result is very hard to figure out.. I hoped they would be color paired as in nirsofts but it's just all same color.. I hope they are paired then..
