Boolean search operators for content?

First, thanks for the helpful search software!
When I search in file content, I see that I can search for words or phrases, but I don't see how to do a boolean search. For example find augustine AND confessions. Instead, everything searches for the phrase "augustine confessions".
What is the syntax for booleans in file content?
Thanks again,
Ari

Please try the following search:
content:augustine content:confessions

Everything boolean operators:
space = AND
| = OR
! = NOT
< > = Grouping

Hi there!

Search string bar foo doesn't find foobar for me on v1.4.1.935 (x64). Is this expected behavior?

Added: it does not actually find barfoo as well. Can anyone confirm this?

Added: I see that build 969 fixed this. Sorry for the interuption.

Enabling match whole words from the Search menu can cause this.

Please make sure no search options are enabled under the Search menu (uncheck match case, uncheck match whole words, uncheck match diacritics, uncheck Regex)

Match whole words really causes this.

I can't say whether it had been enabled or not before I updated the program.

Thanks!
