Just select Panelize after you have the first list. That will give you a
panel with the files that have been found.

Remember that you can customise the "eXternal panelize" command to do
almost anything you want. Just try:
External Panelize/Other Command
slocate -i filenamestring
You can even pipe the output of "slocate -i filenamestring" to filter it, eg:
slocate -i filenamestring | grep bin
or use slocate -r to use a regular expression for your search.
And by using "Add new" you can save a command for future use.
One of my favourites is to sort the sendmail mail queue and panelise the
output, keeping associated df and qf files together:
ls -1 q* d* x* | sort -k1.3 -k1.1,1.2
Very handy for separating incomplete df files from the rest.
