How exactly does Red perform its search for missing files? Does it begin with the drive letter the file was last seen at? Will it ever become user definable? Will it ever have a 'Search All' selection?

And will the menu window ever have a horizontal scroll bar to accomodate long pathnames or auto-size to the longest string of characters so that stuff isn't always getting clipped off?

Hi Steve,

How exactly does Red perform its search for missing files?

By scanning all mounted drives in order

Does it begin with the drive letter the file was last seen at?

No, it scans the drives in alphabetical order.

Will it ever become user definable?

There are no plans to add that feature but I'll take this as a user generated request and add it to the database. Thanks for mentioning it.

Will it ever have a 'Search All' selection?

Not sure what you mean there ... it should automatically search all drives.

... horizontal scroll bar to accomodate long pathnames

Again, good suggestion. I'll add this as a feature request.

Cheers,

Peter.

That's too bad. In a professional Avid Unity environment I might have as many as a dozen shares mounted along with several partitions on removable drives.

Without the ability to define a starting point to search it takes quite a lot of time to find and relink stuff compared to me telling the software to look in a particular place.

By 'Search All' I mean to tell Red to go look for everything that it thinks is missing versus me sitting there and clicking the links one by one.

All of the points that you make are fair and valid. I'm entering them into the database as feature requests.

Thanks again for mentioning this to us Steve.

Cheers,

Peter.
