How to search on 2 words, wildcard and not combined

Postby mrwul » Sun Dec 30, 2018 12:38 am

I would like to search for files that include two (or more) words using wild cards
Not necessarily a combination of the words.

Example, let's say I want to find everything that includes
image
sugge

it would find images, or imageshack, or imageglass, i.e. anything with image
and
that also include suggestion

but both should be anywhere, either in title or in text, not necessarily 'together''
so word 'image' in the title or file name
suggestion in the body

Have always been puzzling about this...
However, as, in the end, I usually found what I was looking for, I went on, but never asked this question here.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

You don't need me to tell you that X1's search grammar is a well kept secret.
