bug in search with scope: anywhere


There’s a bug in EagleFiler 1.3.4 in the search function. I have a pdf document with the title “foo” and some other documents with the tag “foo”. Now when I search for “foo” (scope: anywhere) only the pdf document comes up. When I search for “foo” (scope: tags"), the other documents come up.

Somehow the scope anywhere doesn’t work. A pity and a pain.


The Anywhere search is functioning as designed. At present, it can search for tags, but you need to type “tag:”. This is for technical reasons, having to do with the way the search index is constructed. Perhaps a future version will relax this limitation.

With EagleFiler 1.4, tags are automatically included in Anywhere searches.
