Excluding folders with spaces in the name

Postby ctguy » Thu Jul 16, 2015 2:56 am

I am using WinMerge 2011 and trying to exclude several folders from comparison using the xd:folder syntax. Unfortunately some of my folder names have a space in them and I really just want to do an exact string match to a list of folders to exclude but have had no luck matching names that contain a space in them. (Not that I'm trying to match any folder with a space, but specific folder names that contain a space.)

I have tried escaping the space as \s and \_ (underscore just representing the space character), even using quotes to surround the string. What am I missing?
