    Lucian, any chance you can add regexp keywords. ATM I’m adding multiple strings to cater for some minor variations:

    GTX 1080 Gaming Box, Gaming Box GTX1080, Gaming Box GTX 1080, 1080 Gaming Box, Gaming Box 1080, Aorus Gaming Box

    It makes more sense to use regular expressions, eg:

    [GTX1080|GTX 1080] Gaming Box, Gaming Box [GTX1080|GTX 1080]
    [GTX1080|GTX 1080] Aorus Gaming Box, Aorus Gaming Box [GTX1080|GTX 1080]

    Could this feature be added?

    Also be mindful of how to store such strings so they are extracted properly when exported to CSV and reimported (I find Excel easier for editing). I believe quoting such strings with commas then sees them allocated to one CSV field in Excel. Without quotes, commas much up the field formatting requiring the use of some other separator.

    Hello. Thank you for this suggestion. I will try to find a way to implement regular expressions.

    Regarding import/export, you want the export file to have strings encapsulated in double quotes ?

    Lucian, appreciate the regexp enhancement.

    Yes, the current default CVS export of the AAL table doesn’t quote the keywords as follows:

    Current – keywords are CVS imported as separate fields:
    CUDA-Z, cudaz,http://cuda-z.sourceforge.net/ ,software homepage

    Request – keywords quoted so are imported as two comma separated items in a single field:
    “CUDA-Z, cudaz”,http://cuda-z.sourceforge.net/ ,software homepage

    Also forgot to ask, can the CVS file have a line prefix such as hash (#) be used so the line is just a comment and ignored? I’d like to section off the CVS file with comments so can manage it easier.

    Hello. I have added encapsulation to links export feature. Please update to the latest version and let me know if it is working as expected. Sorry for the late response but we had a major bug to resolve.
