Can wildcards be used in filelist search?

Post by JCN9801 » Wed Feb 12, 2020 11:00 am

I want to achieve something like:
*#*507*(HD)* filelistfilename:MasterEFU.efu
Match to 507 after the # and before the (HD)
Presumably I have to escape the WCs but not sure how to do this (or switch to regex?)

Thanks in advance,
-JCN

Could you please confirm:
You have the filelist MasterEFU.efu included in your Everything Index from Tools -> Options -> Filelists?
-or-
Are you using the filelist: search function? -The filelist: search function does not support wildcards.

If you have the MasterEFU.efu in your index, your search should be working. Please make sure Regex is disabled from the Search menu.

If you wish to search with regex, please try:
regex:#.*507.*\(HD\) filelistfilename:MasterEFU.efu
-Please make sure regex is disabled under the Search emnu.
