Left panel: 11398 files
Right panel: 11391 files

After running macro:
Left panel: 11255 files selected
Right panel: 11252 files selected

Time:
Old macro: 32 seconds
Now with John Doe's macro: 3 seconds

Great work :-)

I am back with this macro. How to ignore text between brackets? Something like this:

04 My Room (Waiting For Wonderland)

should be the same as

02 My Room

Thanks!
Is it possible to implement also Fuzzy SEARCH ?
Looks like it should be "almost the same", so probably it will be easy to implement?
I searched thru a google for Far Fuzzy Search, found nothing
