Ok, here is a scenario, in pictures.
OK, so searching all files looks in 333 files, and finds 614 matches. First result is
So I try to limit the scope a bit, with my logical regex of
[^alex/init*]*. Great. Got fewer results, fewer files were searched, 1st result is different. Fine.
Wanting to eliminate all results in that
alex directory.. I foolishly think that by just simplifying the regex that worked to
[^alex/*]*, that ALL results that match tat expression will disappear. Wrong.
Instead of matching (or shall I say EXCLUDING) MORE files, it goes back to matching (excluding) NONE! This is the most simple example of frustrating results from this search interface... trust me I could show more!
Putting this question out there... in hopes that a solution to this simple problem will enlighten me to the correct syntax for more advanced searches!
