There’s already a function “Combine documents into a single file” under menu “tools -> split/combine”. But this function only combine opened files. If hundreds of files need to combine, it’s not convenient by existing function. Then I wish:
.Combine documents which are not opened into a single file.Like “Find in files” function,we don’t need to open files but can find directly.
My requirement is EmEditor can search all files under a folder and its sub folders, and then combine them together.December 4, 2019 at 1:20 pm #26434Yutaka EmuraKeymaster
If you just want to combine files at disk, you can do that with the COPY command in Command Prompt, for instance:
COPY file1.txt + file2.txt file3.txt
COPY *.txt file3.txt
What do you think?December 4, 2019 at 4:34 pm #26436DavidParticipant
Yes, agree with you, we can use “COPY *.txt file3.txt” to do that. The challange is: if tens of files will be combined, the file order is a problem. In Emeditor, there’re UP and DOWN button available, we can move up or move down as requirements. But “COPY *.txt file3.txt” will do by default order (I guess it is according to alphanumber ascending of file name).
Of course, we can use “COPY file3.txt + file1.txt+file9.txt file3.txt……”, but we need more efforts.December 7, 2019 at 4:39 am #26448LTTParticipant
I suggest to add command line options for that.
