Wildcard search

in search files/folders

File name:


this actually is not a bug but:

wildsearch search:

-*.txt = exclude all *.txt files
--*.txt = include file with '-' at the beginning

should it not be --*.txt exclude file with '-' at the beginning

?????????????

update: it does include them. i just tried. thought that this is logically not consistent that the same sign '-' does include and exclude.


btw: thx for implementing AND in search inside files (pdf files). this feature helps me a lot with my pdfs ...

This procedure is often used. If you have control characters in a string, then two control characters in succession are interpreted as a normal character.
