"Match Path" not affected by filters/macro

Postby omer » Sun Oct 08, 2017 12:50 pm

Hi there,
1. I love everything! :-)
2. I've defined a filter (Search --> Organize Filters) which has "Match path" checked. But when activating this filter (or using its Macro word), the Match Path option isn't applied. Similarly, when I apply it manually and then switch to a filter where it's unchecked - the option isn't unapplied.

Using Everything 1.4.1.877 (x64) on Windows 10 Enterprise.

Thanks,
Omer

What is your particular search?


It could be (like with an anchored regex:, "^ABC"), that you're looking for ABC as one part of of filepath+name, where Everything is searching for filepath+name that starts with "ABC".

C:\TMP\ABC.TXT
C:\ABC\test123.mp3

Also if using regex: you may need to escape \'s.

path:regex:"^TMP"
won't return anything.

path:regex:"^C:\\TMP"
will

path:regex:"^ABC"
won't return anything

path:regex:"^C:\\ABC"
will
