Re: How to exclude binaries from content search?

It looks like it uses Everything for it's filename searches, as it includes Everything32.dll (from the SDK) to communicate with a running Everything.

Yes, two delimiters will be supported. ; can be escaped with double quotes. doubles quotes can be escaped with quot: (or ": in future versions of Everything) | can be escaped with &verbar: in future versions of Everything. I see . I'm guessing you have your reasons of not escaping with the stan...

Re: How to exclude binaries from content search?

+1
I do believe this could be a useful feature.
Currently I revert to using cli tools like ripgrep for content searching, which knows to skip binary files as well as respect .gitignore and git folders etc.
Supporting these features in everything could be great!

Re: One letter macro overrides drive letter path queries

Macro names are case-sensitive, so if you defined e: as a macro, you can still use E: to specify the files on your E:-drive. Another alternative: use "e:" (surrounded by "" ) That's a good point! Never realized that the macros were case sensitive. The problem is when trying to be "wise" you might m...

Inconsistant syntax between ext and common grouping

Hi,

This is just a minor issue, but grouping multiple extensions using ext:ext1;ext2 differs from the common way of grouping <file1|file2>

Imo, to retain consistency, the ext handler should support the common way as well..

Avi
