Allow round bracket grouping

Everything 1.5 removes the Tools -> Options -> Search -> "Allow round bracket grouping" option.

This setting causes trouble with regex and makes it difficult to match valid filenames.

The setting can still be enabled:
  • Copy and paste the following into your Everything search box:
    /allow_round_bracket_parenthesis2=1
    (where 1=enabled and 0=disabled)
  • Press ENTER in your Everything search box.
  • If successful, allow_round_bracket_parenthesis2=1 is shown in the status bar for a few seconds.
    allow_round_bracket_parenthesis2


Fast ASCII search

Everything 1.5 removes the Tools -> Options -> Search -> "Fast ASCII search" option.

This setting is now disabled by default.
The setting no longer gives any noticeable performance increase.
The setting only works when enabling match diacritics.

The setting can still be enabled:
  • Copy and paste the following into your Everything search box:
    /fast_ascii_search2=1
    (where 1=enabled and 0=disabled)
  • Press ENTER in your Everything search box.
  • If successful, fast_ascii_search2=1 is shown in the status bar for a few seconds.
    fast_ascii_search2


Expand environment variables

Use &percnt:APPDATA&percnt: to escape environment variables.

    /expand_environment_variables2=0
    (where 1=enabled and 0=disabled)
  • Press ENTER in your Everything search box.

    expand_environment_variables2


Match path when search contains path separator

Everything 1.5 removes the Tools -> Options -> Search -> "Match path when search contains path separator" option.

This setting is now enabled by default.
There's no good reason to disable this setting as names generally cannot contain a path separator (\)
use name:\ to match \ in the name part.

The setting can still be disabled:
  • Copy and paste the following into your Everything search box:
    /match_path_when_search_contains_path_separator2=0
    (where 1=enabled and 0=disabled)
  • Press ENTER in your Everything search box.
  • If successful, match_path_when_search_contains_path_separator2=0 is shown in the status bar for a few seconds.
