Hi.

Is it possible somehow, to download and extract automatically all collections, derived from the single lines of a txt file?

To clarify:
I have a txt file, each line contains the exact name of a collection.
Would it be possible to somehow import the txt file, and let UE download and extract all collections from these lines of text?

There is no option to import a text file into the subject line of the search service bar.

If you use boolean wildmats you can join individual searches with the vertical slash "|" (OR) and then use copy/paste.

Do you mean cryptic posts with randomized subjects?

Hi, using the Boolean Wildmats and the Pipe "|" symbol, I can very easily paste all collections searches. (notepad++ easily allows me to replace a enter/return to | then with ctrl+c and ctrl+v the search only results in the collections I want to have.

Great!!

One residual question:
Is there a limit on the number of characters in the search?

The windows edit control limits the length to 32K by default, the limit can be changed, but probably it is long enough.

The size of the relevant internal buffer used in UE is much higher.
