Defintely AND. ;)

Yeah... that's what I've been doing... unfortunately, that can take a LONG time with long lists. (see comment below)

REALLY? Wow... they really had some nice features, eh?

Yes, actually, my Select from here down and here up suggestions would solve my immdediate need for SizeSpec. Just sort by size, find the biggest file I want to see, then hit Ctrl-UP or Ctrl-DOWN (or whatever keys Kim wants -hehe) and I'll have the files I want selected. But that also means if I'd had any files tagged before, I'd lose those.

Yeah, I think I remember that now... thanks for the reminder. Although, I'm still a little wary of X and Alt-X types of functions in ZTW (which the application menu seems to do). It tends to react a little sporadically - sometimes not letting me back into ZTW, or if the app I'm running hangs, then I'm screwed. You had any problems?

That's what I've been doing... unfortunately, my mouse is a bit "sticky" so positioning it where needed on my hi-res screen (making for small ZTW fonts) is a difficult and time consuming task... one where I often have to restart the process a couple of times. Even on my system with a non-sticky mouse this can be a trial in mouse accuracy. :) Plus, I've noticed the highlighting of the region I select tends to behave a little strangely - I don't know if this is a ZTW problem or Windows. It'd be nice to have a key (like Ctrl-C in Gather mode while viewing a file) that would copy this info into the clipboard automatically.

Thanks for the reply Mathias! Glad to be back! :)
