"infolder:" search bug?

Post by nikov »

Hi,
i think it's a bug, introduced in Everything 1.5a because i have checked that, this does not happen in Everything 1.4:

The bug:
"infolder:" search does not work with a folder which has a Unicode character "\" (Name: Fullwidth Reverse Solidus (Unicode number: U+FF3C)).

Without "infolder" search:

Many thanks for your consideration.

Also, later i have checked and found, "infolder:" search works only when "Match Diacritics" is turned on.
But problem is: Turning off "Match Diacritics" should be at least equal or more inclusive, thus, "infolder:" search should show at least equal or more results when "Match Diacritics" is turned off.

So more specifically, the bug is maybe in the "turned off state of the Match Diacritics" option.

Many thanks.

With Match Diacritics off, Everything will treat the \as a path separator.
This is not correct.

The next update will only treat / and \ as path separators
and
\will work with infolder:

I'll have a fix soon.

Everything 1.5.0.1333a fixes an issue with matching \ or / in paths.

Everything will no longer treat Unicode Fullwidth Reverse Solidus (\) or Unicode Fullwidth Solidus (/) as path separators.
