After Update, OR no longer works.

After Update, OR no longer works.

XP

Even copying from your FAQ, restrictions using | or OR no longer work.

kim *.bmp|*.jpg
Yields 591,771 results (597,751 if kim is deleted)

kim *.bmp
Yields 0 results

kim *.jpg
Yields 45 results (Whole Word) or 624 results (not Whole Word)

I really miss this ability. What have I screwed up?

Adding | means that all parameters will apply only for the previous filter
kim *.bmp|*.jpg
This will display all bmp images that have kim in his name and display all jpg images regardless of the name

It works fine here
wallpaper *.bmp|*.jpg
This displayed all of my bmp images that have wallpaper in the name and also displayed every single jpg I have

Before Updating, this expression resulted in a list of all bmp OR jpg files containing kim in the name.

Now, just as you say, ALL jpg files are listed, irrrespective of their name.

This makes OR useless. How can I go back to making OR work as before the update?

Thanks, but, before the Update, I used stored restrictions like: epub|pdf|lit|mobi|txt |wpd !url !.dcm !bk!
to give a quick listing of all files which meet these restrictions.

It worked great and I’d sure like to go back to that functionality.

You will need to use grouping.

Please try:

Code: Select all

<epub|pdf|lit|mobi|txt|wpd> !url !.dcm !bk!
I have fixed the issue for the next beta update. I hope to release this sometime this week.

What will be the exact syntax to list file with "No extensions"? the equivalent of say test ext: which attempts to list such a file.

Also test ext:jpg; --lists test* with both jpg and "no extension" whereas adding another term say test ext:jpg;bmp; knocks off the "no extension" file. Surprisingly the logic works for "t" ,"te" but not for "tes" onwards.

EDIT There seems to be a problem with "te" too , which is listing lesser number of files on adding more extensions..

You are just using ext: without adding anything.
For example searching for make(from makefile which don't have extension) and adding ext: displayed all of the makefiles I have on the hdd(no folders no any other file)

Adding ; at the end means that there will be another search criteria after it(in this case,no extension),so remove it

I tried this exercise.
a ext: ---------875 files
a ext:avi --------1808 ,,
a ext:bmp ---------280 ,,
a ext:bmp;avi ---2088 ,,
a ext:bmp;avi;---2595 files instead of say 2963 files. The quantum of extension less files seem to have come down.

Thanks for the bug report nagan,

The issue is related to the empty extension, I will fix this for the next beta update.
