Lightroom 6.2: Import dialog with file mask(s)

Lightroom is missing a file mask in the import dialog to filter to files to import. On my archive I have raw files, together with dng file for each raw file and a jpg file. The names of the jpg's are not all the time identically to the raw file name.

So it is impossible for me to import just the raw files. Prior to 6.2 it was possible to make a according file search (with finder or double commander) and drag alle the found files from different directories into the import dialog.

With 6.2 this solution no longer works, because only one directory can be imported.

There is a option how to thread the jpg (when the names are identically), but not for dng's.

It is possible to sort the import dialog according the media type, but the media type is to rough for filtering.

File masks like *.cr2 or combination like *.cr2;*.arw;*.orf;*.rw2;*.srw;*.crw;*.raw as many other programs provide should be possible.
