Is it possible to select files in the Path Finder browser by using a regex filter?

Simple example:
Select all files whose names contain a space followed by some characters and then an underscore. The regex might be / \s.*_ / .

Is it possible to do this any other way in PF?
If not, what are the recommended alternatives?

Thanks.

    Hi Kirby,

    Currently, there is no way to use a Regular Expression filter in Path Finder browser.
    I have forwarded your request to our developers so that they could consider implementing it in one of the future cycles of the app.
    Please feel free to write us back and we will be happy to assist you.

    Best Regards,

    Bump :-)

    Always makes me laugh when I look for a solution to a problem before me and find that I have asked before.

    Anyone have a way to select files whose names match a regex?

    I also am trying to use regex to search for files in PF. That would be a nice feature.

    Why did I have to do 8 captchas (each one done perfectly thank you very much) just to post this???
