Good Morning!

I just discovered that I cannot find notes that have a backslash in the text.

In many of my notes I have a written out tag line at the top to help in finding (unfortunately not able to organize by) notes.

Example:

"Be Ready: Expecting/Anticipating HIS Return"

If I try to search/find "expect," "expecting," "anticipating" in the note in the notes tool, this note will not populate in the search result. 

I can go into the note and add a space to the tag line text Ii.e. "Be Ready: Expecting / Anticipating HIS Return"), which will allow the search tool to find the search words ( "expect," "expecting," or "anticipating"), but that would mean I would have to go into multiple notes to do this. 

Why is Logos not able to find a word within text with a backslash? Will this be fixed?

It appears to be working for me on macOS 10.14.2, Logos 8.2 Beta 2.

Is this an example of what you are wanting?

Thanks for the reply!

This is what the note text looks like, yes.

However, just search for one of the words in the phrase with the backslash: e.g. "expecting" or "anticipating".

It would be nice to even be able to get a match just using parts of either of those words(i.e. "expect" or "anticip").

Oh, I see what you are trying to do.

It finds the "expec..." part for me, but not the "anticip..." part. It will find the "/" by itself. 

Maybe FL can comment on this.

Actually...now I can find the fist word before the backslash. It seems like it is the words connected after the backslash. So now I am getting the results you did.

It is interesting that a backslash by itself renders results in the search. For me I am getting more search results that do not actually have the character (backslash). Is this and the above a bug?

Ummm, Ruben, in your post, you wrote of backslash, (\) but used slash (/) in your example.

Would that make a difference in how Logos works?

Haha! Had to google that right quick...but you are right. Looks like I had the wrong name for the character...but it looks like Levi knew what I was trying to say.

I did just try the back slash instead (the truly true back slash) and the results for the issue remained: the words behind the back slash ("\") did not render a hit when queried.

Do you get anything different, Jack?

Good look outs on proper use of vocab, though! 

Thanks! rs
