Searching for an exact phrase

Postby » Tue Nov 20, 2018 9:53 am

want to search for an exact phrase i.e. "Windows Version". By exact I expect only that phrase to be found and not for example "WINDOWS.
* ***************** Version"

to be found. Based on the help info I tried "Windows Version" but got both this exact phase and often also the latter.

Please can anyone advise how to do an exact phase search in X1?

Any ideas how to filter results to specific file types? in the complete set of results there are a number of .cpp source files containing the exact phase but when I add cpp as a filter for file type bingo no results. If I change to pdf as file type some but not all pdfs from complete list are shown.
To me this is so obviously wrong I can not image this this is by design.

Am running 8.6 6003ch(64 bit) on Win 10x64

Put the phrase in quotes.

"Windows Version"


Windows Version
X1 Search 8.5.2 - Build 6001si (64-bit)
Windows 10 Pro 64-bit | Windows 10 Home 32-bit
No, I have nothing to do with X1, just a user since 2004.
