No content indexing for doc docx and odt

Post by horst.epp »

I have set content indexing which worked some versions ago.
Now with Everything 1.5.0.1283a (x64)
I can't search contents. I doesn't find anything for the document types above.
Also there are large delays for querying content which are not in older versions.

Tested now with previous Version 1.5.0.1280a (x64) and this works fine !
The problem with the actual version starts as soon as a database rebuild is done.
It creates a database > 1.1GB while the working versions db is only about 35 MB

For shure a Everything problem because the same dirs and files
are successfully indexed by the Windows indexer.
I can use si:searchterm in Everything and it finds it in doc, docx and odt files.
An index rebuild didn't help.

Thank you for the bug report horst.epp,

I am looking into the issue.

There was recent changes with the way Everything indexes PDF files.
Please try excluding PDF files from your content indexing.
Does the issue persist?

Tested again with 1283a.
If I remove *.pdf the database size stays normal
but there are still no doc, docx or odt files indexed.
All works fine with 1280a.
