Advanced feature guide

There are three buttons on the right of the "Search" button, which are used for "Zone editor", "Settings," and "Register", respectively.

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

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

For the advanced settings 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 the scan scope ("only filename" or "filename and file content"). Below you can add new extension file types. Just key in the postfix of the file name and press the "Add" button. The files of user-add type will be parsed as a raw text file. Then click "Save" to keep the changes for file types.

Here is the "Settings" window. The first tab page is "General settings", and you can set the display language and the default encoding (for parsing a text file that cannot detect encoding). Below you can set the highlight color for the preview window. At the bottom, the font type and font size for the preview can be changed.

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 the "Scan" button in the tray menu);
3. In the "Search" section, you can:

  • (1) set the result count for the 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 documents but slower) ;
  • (4) set single file maximum parsing time (higher means supporting more complex documents but slower);

  • 4. In the "Other" section, you can determine whether to minimize into the tray after clicking the “Close” button. Next, you can select “Reset”, and TextSeek will go back to the wizard pages in the next boot. Finally, when you encounter a TextSeek crash, you can click the "Send error report" button” to send us an error report, which helps us find the root cause of the crash.

    On the "Register" page, just input your email, name, country/region, and the serial code (after purchasing from our official website, you will receive the code in your email). Then click "Submit” to complete your registration.
