|Summary||0003743: Implemented: select files in panels according to a filter|
|Description||Attached is a patch which extends the Filters menu (CTRL+I) with a support for selecting/unselecting files in the active panel according to a filter: When a cursor is on a filter, press "S" to select all files matching this filter, press "U" to unselect all files matching this filter, and press "*" to invert selection of all files matching this filter. I find this much more useful than the actual filters, because it doesn't require any further action (compared to filter selection - after I do that, I have to remember to clear the filter afterwards). The patch is intended for build 5476, apply using git apply patch.diff.|

Filtered selection is already available with Gray + and -.
Why do we need another (and much less obvious) way?
||Because my patch does not *filter*, it *selects*. And it does it *immediately*, not *after the dialog is closed*. I find it much more useful and thought other people might like it as well. If not, whatever, I can always compile my own FAR version.|
