Don't search by wildcard in Open File/item Finder & Move item dialog


#1

Request of search method setting.


●NOW
items:
apple
banana
bacon

search word:
an

results:
banana
bacon

●Request
search word:
an

result:
banana


“Request” is same as the “Search in doc”


#2

You can search for “an” if you don’t want the search to be fuzzy – does that work for you?


#3

You mean, search for「“an”」?
No, no one is hit for “an” , or “banana”.

However, I can’t be bothered to type like “○○” everytime I use shortcut.


#4

I meant normal quotation marks ("an").

Then type more keyword so you only get what you want? Like if you search for “ban” instead of “an”, “bacon” won’t match any more.

Sorry to respond late. I had replied to the email.

After going through my thought process,
my proposal is to implement “Move item to document, not to item”.

I meant normal quotation marks (“an”).
Sorry.
I meant normal quotation, too. I meant no one is hit for “an”.
How can I use that option?
However, I can’t be bothered to type like “○○” every time I use shortcut.

Then type more keyword so you only get what you want? Like if you search for “ban” instead of “an”, “bacon” won’t match any more.
If you searching in that way, “TODO” also hits "Todoist"
It’s too noisy.
I can’t avoid this issue in any operation.
I tried to name document as unique name, but no name hits unique document.

However, my purpose is to move item to other document easily,
so please implement “Move item to document”.

And if you could, I want you to implement searching for partial match,
not fuzzy.

I’m sorry for my poor English.

If that’s your suggestion, we’ll consider adding a new is:document search directive, rather than implementing an entire new feature for moving to document. That’s one more shortcut to remember and in my opinion not worth it for the slightly niche use case.

I hope that’s understandable!
