Clicky

Just new to HS and it's already becoming integrated in my workflow, great app!

I wonder if a feature could be added to exclude certain file types during a search?
(Or perhaps this is possible and I am missing something?)

Hi!

You may define "Content type" or "Content kind" criteria. You may also search for file names ending with a specific extension.

You may wrap such criteria in a "NONE of the following is true" (boolean NOT) group to negate them.

Additional groups may be created by option-clicking the plus button at the far right of a criterion row.

Thanks for the reply!

But not sure if this works. This is my problem: I do a search for several search strings in text content (with ALL or ANY are true). I want to exclude html documents from the results. How do I do that?

Hi Pierre,

Thanks! I see I missed this remark: "Additional groups may be created by option-clicking the plus button at the far right of a criterion row." Now I see how to do it, great!

As a lawyer I often need to confirm work I've done in the past, even as recently as the previous day, for billing, etc. When I do a search that looks for documents created, modified or last opened on a particular day, the search is useful, but turns up lots of .xml files. When I try to exclude .xml files (see screen shot), the search no longer is limited to the date I've specified, and a search that produced a few hundred files before I tried to exclude xml files produces thousands, going back years. Where am I going wrong? Click image for larger version - Name: Exclude_xml.jpg, Views: 17, Size: 23.45 KB

Hi!

Your root group is an ANY group. Thus the query matches any document which either matches your date criteria or is not a XML file.

Pierre-

Can you advise me how to design a search that selects documents meeting any of my date criteria but excludes XML documents?
