Search Syntax for Quick Filter

#1 Post by LeisureUser » 13.10.2017, 16:21

Hi Everybody,
I would like to know which syntax I need to use in order to:
1. find files without a certain expression (i.e. find files without the word "light"). I tried -[light] or [!light] or -"light" but they didn´t work.
2. find files with the combination of excluded and included words (i.e. with "dark" AND without "light").
Does someone have a hint for me?

This is how I do for quick filtering:
1. I use "light" for quick filter
2. select all result
3. dispable quick filter
4. invert selection - only file (Ctrl + Numpad *)
in the end, if you prefer, view only selected file (Ctrl+S)

Thanks afh for the Response. This workflow works, though it seems to be rather a "work-around".

Anyone knows, why the Syntax of the Filter doesn´t work in the quick-filter?
