    When I run ffind /W to start a dialog box, I would like to be able to select attributes.
    For example, I was looking only for directories with *nx*.
    Is it possible to add this as a wishlist for a future release?

    Thank You and regards

    You can already do this, either by adding your attribute switches at the beginning of the FFIND command line, or using the "/A:=" switch to call the attributes dialog.

    I mean when I use "FFIND /W", I would like to see a button that starts another dialog box such as the one that I get with "/A:=", so that I can choose everything from dialog boxes.
    It is not clear to me how to use the "/A:=".
    For example, I type "FFIND /A:= *.*". If I do not choose any attribute, it find all files in the current directory. If I choose any attribute, I get a syntax error.
    Can You help me?

    Thank You and regards
