Why Is The File Search Path Not Recursive?

November 12, 2008 | 12:47 am

Why is it one has to indicate PRECISELY the folder that files exist in, rather than creating a search system that recursively searches every folder within the designated folder?? That would make life so much easier. I personally need to organize my patches and samples very specifically and it would be a great help if Max’s search path was recursive. Please, please, please implement this.

Not sure what you mean here. From the ref:

"If you want subfolders of the folder you added to the search path to be searched, make sure the checkbox in the Subfolders column is checked. If you only want the folder you added to the search path to be searched, uncheck its checkbox in the Subfolders column."
