    Hi everyone,

    thank you for this excellent software.

    I experiment a strange behaviour, I will describe it by an example.

    I have a set of Excel files, some of which contain the word “Black”.

    If I search, by AnyTXT, the string “Black”, the right files are found.

    If I search the string “Blac”, the same files are found (which is correct from my point of view; because there are no files

    that contain “Blac” but not “Black”).

    But if I search the string “lac”, it doesn’t find anything (instead I would expect it to find, at least, the same files).

    Can you help me to understand?

    Thanks in advance

    This is not strange at all to me, if you parse the topics here you’ll find quite a few requesting REGEX capabilities, that is searching with wildcards.

    In order to find “lac” the app should in fact be capable of searching for *lac* and from what I see that’s not possible now, Admin is quiet when such questions are asked.
