...if it is only a list of words that must all be present in the filenames, then maybe this would work for you : >^(?=.*?\bdog\b)(?=.*?\bfood\b)(?=.*?\bcat).*$ This regexp sould match all filenames that contains the words "dog" and "food" and "cat*" (so cat, cats or category but not advocate) Well,...

BTW Leopoldus, is there a reason you don't want to use regexp, maybe you could find one to do the work, something like >^cat.*$|[^a-z]cat The reason is simple: my search inquire is realy longer then this fragment we are discussing here, it is indeed something like this: :(cat* or * cat*) and dogs a...

This should work [!A-Za-z] (or this? [!A-Z!a-z] ... no time to try now...) Afraid that either of them does not work (returns nothing). I've tried to use < ^ > ("not" in regular expressions AFAIK) instead of < ! >, it does not work too. If and when you have a bit free time to play with it, may be yo...

You could try this then: cat* or *[ ,.-_]cat* It is OK, thanks :) However there some other usual word separators as well, so the full expression should include them too, something like this: cat* or *[ ,.-_ ;'´\!\(\&@#£$€¤%{[%=+~§“”«»1234567890]cat* right? Indeed it would be a bit more convenient t...

* cat* actually is [any or no char] up to [space]cat [any or no char] matching "...and cat" but neither "advocate" nor "cat" without a space before it :) Thank you, I see. But in this event it is not just exactly what I wished, that's why space is not the only possible words separator in file or fo...

I think you missed a space there, it is * cat* as in *[space]cat* ! Hence why it would not match "Advocate" Thank you jacky and admin ! You are right, I've not noticed this very essential difference :oops: So it does really works, but... I don't understand, why it works. If symbol <*> means any wor...

1) cat* 2) cat* or * cat* Thanks for the fine first expression, it works indeed (BTW this string may be in the any palce of of the search quary, not in the beginng only, i.e. cat* and dogs = dogs and cat* ) But regarding the second question I am not sure... Cat* or *cat* = simply *cat* isn'i it? So...

boolean search by the string in the beginning of the name

Hello! I could not find any way to search filds and folders in Boolean mode (not in RegExp mode!) by the string in the beginning of the name. Is it possible? Say we need to find all items with string " cat ", which names: 1) begins from the string (e.g. " Cat egories of dogs.doc ", but not " Advo ca...

After a year of using XY versions with this new interface I dare to say, that removing "Boolean logic" checkbox was not a very good idea. As for me, more 90% of all my queries are Boolean searches , so almost every time I have to begin my queries with prefix ":". Entering a colon sign needs using th...

But anyway, will wait and see if others need it too. I agree with Surrender's suggestion. It may have sense for locked tabs. I.e. you have one tab for music and another for programmes; or one for fixed drive C: and another for connected mobile. I suppose that the histories of every tab will be abso...
