Under "Advanced", I have tons and tons of custom extensions mostly items that indeed just text files and will index just fine.
Even just my selection of "Folders to index" is complicated. Do I index by a drive letter or do I index using a network UNC? It matters after my years of experience of trying to make the most efficient indexing strategy.
So my 'feature request' would be to have a "Save settings" button right in the "Options" section of the program.
if you are able to read xml-files, you can save the config.xml and savedSearches.xml. After a reinstallation or if you want to give your configuration to a colleague edit these files and restart CDS. It's a lot easier and faster than doing it manually again and again...
But it's true, a function like "export and import configuration" would be awesome for every "normal" user. Mayby even with a dialog where you can choose what exactly to export and import (file extansions, locations, predefined searches, ...).
Hi Jochen and Kevin,
I recently had to reinstall CDS to a new PC and reselect all of the options. Importing the configuration would have been nice!
I have also had this error message a couple of times in the past: "Configuration could not be read. Copernic Desktop Search will continue to run but the settings will be reverted to the default configuration. The existing index will be erased." Again I had to reselect all of the options.
I support a feature request to export and import the configuration settings, ideally with the option to include or exclude email folders to index, file folders to index, file extensions, predefined searches, etc.
