Support multiple filters

Postby john1 » Sun Jan 14, 2018 11:30 am

I would like to enable multiple filters at once, perhaps not through the menu to keep that simple, but maybe using advanced search options or by using "audio: video:" to search for audio and video files. The latter currently doesn't return results.

space = AND
| = OR
try audio:|video: without quotes

That is an odd one, isn't it.

Code: Select all

audio:  video:

No. The source for this confusion is the difference between the way you speaking and the way you use by programming.
You say: I'm searching for audio AND video, (therfore you might type in "audio: video:", while the space is the AND of what you just said).
But when it comes to the computing language, then:
AND = Narrow your search results
OR = Expand your search results

AND = Narrow your search results
OR = Expand your search results
@void
I think this point should be clarified somewhere in help.

And lets not forget NOT ;-).

Cause I have one like this:

Code: Select all

!ext:  !video:  !audio:  !.iso  !.sys  !.log  !.wim  !.box  !.exe  !.zip  !.cab  !.rar  !.arj  !.msi  !.msp



(I'm going to have to think about all of this, for a bit.)
