Search order criteria number lines

We strongly recommend you to search the forum with possible keywords before making a new feature request. If your request is very similar to an existing one, consider liking it and/or making a comment rather than making a new one. Once you’ve searched and determined that this is a new request, delete this line.

Use case or problem

When a search occurs and a number of files are listed. I would like to be able to sort the list by number of lines in the files.

Proposed solution

Create a menu option. If there is a problem with “too many” search criteria in a menu, make the entries in the menu configurable via a setting.

Current workaround (optional)

Copy the search into a text file. modify the textfile to determine the number of lines per files. Order that file by “sort -n” and then modify by invoking editor.
