Add line numbers - filter options

Postby DFH » Sat Nov 28, 2015 12:44 am

I am processing multiple input files.

I want to use the Add line numbers filter within a subfilter that restricts to certain matching lines.

There's a tick box option called "Don't reset at the end of file (useful in subfilters)".

btw. The option name is actually misleading when it refers to a file.

If I leave this ticked, the line numbers are never reset, so the line numbers for input file 2 continue after the last number for file 1, etc.
If I untick it, every added line number is reset. i.e. They all become "001" which is not useful at all.

I need something more versatile.

i.e. To reset ONLY at the start of a new input file, but not to reset within the subfilter.

Is this something you can fix?

Best regards,

David

Now added ready for next release:

Reset at start of new file
When this field is checked, the line number gets reset when a new file is started.
