Ignore files on search

Post by Mickey » Tue May 01, 2012 3:17 pm

Often I would like to ignore files like "iPhone" in my search for '"iPad".
So I would like to do a search for "iPad pdf ~iPhone" to turn up pdf files with "iPad" in the name but not "iPhone". There is no easy way to do this.

Is '!' not a NOT operator.
Don't recall exactly offhand, but it looks to be.

So if you search is 'i .pdf !phone', it should find ipad.pdf but not iphone.pdf.
Note depending on your actual search term it would also not find 'ipadphone_formyhome.pdf''.

And while we're at not, if your are not using v451a, you should update to "Everything" version 1.2.1.451a.
