[Fixed] Define a macro using /define, blocks further input query

Post by aviasd »

When defining a macro as per the example:
/define progfiles "C:\program files\"

typing progfiles: will return all matches for "C:\program files\", but I cannot continue filtering by typing additional queries.
I.E progfiles: office will not change the results.
It seems like everything is not processing anything after the macro.
If I inverse the query:
office progfiles:

The results are fine..
Thanks
(1.5.0.1256a (x64))

Thanks for the bug report aviasd,

Everything is currently eating all the text after the macro.

I am working on a fix..

Everything 1.5.0.1258a fixes an issue with macros eating all remaining text.

I've also added support to list all macros with the search command:
/define

and to list the current macro search with the search command:
/define progfiles

I think there's an issue with this feature on Everything 1.5.0.1258a,

Now trying to define a new macro is unsucessfull
Running:

Code: Select all

/define nncontent<search> notindexed:content:search:
yields:
nncontent<search> notindexed:content:search: undefined

(nncontent is not an existing macro )

Please use the following syntax:

/define name=search
/define name<param>=mysearch:param:

For example:
/define nncontent<search>=notindexed:content:search:

I've updated the syntax here.

For the next alpha update, I will re-add support for:
/define name search

Yes , with the equal sign it works. Didn't notice the syntax change.

It was changed to allow:
/define name
to show the current search

I thought the documentation already used /define name=search
I was wrong.
I have *just* updated the documentation.


I will re-add support for:
/define name search
