Assume I enter two search patterns in the "File name" entry field of FileLocator Pro
and select "Boolean" from the drop down right of it.
This would result in a list which contains files AND folders.

But I want to see ONLY files in result list.
Ok I could select "Files Only" from the same Drop down as above but this would remove the "Boolean" search type criteria.

What I need are two independent drop downs:
- one for Search Type=Boolean
and
- one for "Files only"

Am I correct?

When you select 'Files only' the search switches to Boolean. If you need a Wildcard expression (ie DOS Expression) in a Boolean expression then you can prefix the term with DOSEX, e.g.

File name: SearchTerm AND DOSEX "*.txt;*.docx"

Ok, thank you for the answer. May I ask you to move "Files only", "Folders only", "Documents only",...
to options page in the next release? Similarly the option for Case Sensitivity/Match case could be placed there.
