Poss bug in sorting sequencing

Post by smithcferg » Thu Mar 07, 2013 1:16 pm

I have a folder named "ROC Licenses" on my computer. When I search for it with "ROC?L" it doesn't match, nor with "ROC?Licen", "ROC?License" - but it does match with "ROC?Licenses". This seems like it might be a bug.

Searching with "ROC L", "ROC Licen", "ROC License" all do pull up the folder, as expected.

This is version 1.2.1.371.1 running on win7 x64.

Awesome product by the way.

Sincerely,
Craig
PS I would love to see a way to have one server that indexed all the computers on the network, so that I could find any file on the lan by connecting to the one EtP server.

Wildcards enforce whole filename matching (or whole path matching if match path is on).

When searching for ROC?L Everything is really searching for:
<start of filename>ROC?L<end of filename>

To match text anywhere in the filename, enclose the search in *s
For example:

Code: Select all

*ROC?L*
I am considering matching whole words instead of the whole filename with wildcards..
