Voidtools does not search with upper and lower case

Post by bibicoco » Sun Feb 07, 2021 11:36 am

Voidtools does not search with upper and lower case, in the setting the Upper and lower case box is active, but when I do a search I have to do it first with upper case and then later with lower case, before this latest version I had no problems, it's me who's wrong something?
Sorry if something you can't understand, I used google translate, thanks.

You likely have Match Case enabled (Menu:Search > Match Case )

When that is enabled, Everything will do a case-sensitive search:
- Searching for UPPER will find UPPER, but not Upper or upper
- Searching for lower will find lower, but not Lower or LOWER

Just uncheck the Match Case setting and searching for UPPER will find UPPER, as well as Upper and upper

I have the same issue, but does not matter if I have Match Case enabled or disabled.

I have a folder c:\Sandbox but search only returns with \Sandbox not with \sandbox

Sounds like you have regex enabled.

Please make sure Regex is unchecked under the Search menu.

Please let me know if the issue persists.

I think I fixed it, I had to click Search - Advanced Search, then untick all Match Case tickboxes, then it started working OK in the simple search after that

It's sorted now, had to click advanced search then untick all match cases, then simple search worked fine after, maybe it's just the first time you use the program you have to do that
