Advanced feature guide

There are three buttons on the right of "Search" button, which are used for "Zone Editor", "Settings" and "Register", respectively. Let's introduce for you.

In the "Zone Editor" window, all the zones information is included into the big table, one line for one zone (the default line is the zone you set in wizard page). You can click "Edit" to modify zone, or "Add" to append a new zone. Once zones are set up, clicked "Save" to perform scanning over zones.

Here is the setting page for one zone. You can assign a zone name, check the folders and file types to be searched (you can click "show hidden folders" to show all folders) . If the file types you needed is not in the list, click "Advanced" for further manipulation.

Next is advanced setting page for file types. The top table is the file extension table, and one line means one kind of file extension. Just click one line, and choose scan scope "only filename" or "filename and file content". Below you can add new extension file types, just key in the postfix of filename and press "add" button. The files of user-add type will be parsed as raw text file. Then click "Save" will keep the changes for file types.

Here is the "Settings" window. First tab page is "General settings", and you can set the display language and the default encoding (for parsing text file that is hard to detect encoding) . Then below you can set the highlight color for the preview window. At the bottom, the font type and font size for preview can be changed there.

The second tab page is "Advanced settings".

1. In the "boot" section, you can enable the desktop-shortcut, quick launch shortcut, right-click menu or automatic startup to trigger TextSeek;
2. In the "scan" section, you can decide whether the file content is updated automatically or manually (use "scan" button in tray menu);
3. In the "search" section, you can:

  • (1) set result count for search result page ;
  • (2) set the memory consumption level (higher means costing more memory but faster) ;
  • (3) set the single file index level ( higher means supporting larger document but slower) ;
  • (4) set single file maximum parsing time (higher means supporting more complex document but slower);

  • 4. In the "other" section, you can determine whether to minimize into tray after clicking close button. Next, you can select reset and TextSeek will roll back to wizard pages in the next boot. Finally, it's "send error report" button. When you encounter TextSeek crash, you can click it to send us error report, which would be helpful for us to find the root cause of crash.

    In the "register" page, just input email, name, country/region and the serial code (bought first from official website, then your email will receive it). Then click "Submit' and registration is finished.
