I'm searching within text files, and get an error that says

Reported Error:Opening parenthesis '('not found for corresponding closing parenthesis')'. It worked fine yesterday, and I'm using the latest version. Just searching for "test()" gets the error. Help! :)

Problem running task: Starting search - - Contents search value: 'test()' is not valid for the expression type Boolean - - Reported Error: Opening parenthesis '(' not found for corresponding closing parenthesis ')'. Use quotes to specify literal text, e.g. "ending)"

If you are using parenthesis you need to enclose them in quotes, e.g.

Containing Text: "test()"

Alternatively if you're using FileLocator Pro you can switch the expression type to Plain Text.
