Search Finds Matches which should not Match

Postby usbpoweredfridge » Sat Oct 10, 2015 1:31 am

I had a feeling I had posted about this before, but I couldn't find it with a quick forum search, so I thought I may as well post it again (or for the first time). I'm finding some searches in CN which match to notes which I don't believe they should. I have a notebook, with search set to 'everywhere'. I type in :// into the search field, and CN matches nearly every single note in the notebook. I don't believe in fact that any notes have this character set, so I am not sure what is going on.

Edit: Sorry, I'm an idiot - false alarm. :// is part of a URL, so I assume all the matches probably have a link in them somewhere (I did check the text of the first couple of matches, and didn't see the ://, which is why I assumed the search was broken - but if there is a URL in the link field, it won't show in the note text).

Yes, its the Link field. The indication about the match is currently lacking in the note preview, that's what's confusing.
I wonder if just highlighting the link icon would be enough though.

If it isn't too time consuming to do, I'd like to see that - it is easy to forget the link field is there sometimes!

Link field highlighting was added to v3.01 :)
