I'm looking for an old (post 1983) text file and do not know the file extension so I can only search by possible text content excluding as many non-text files as possible
This entry:

NOT:*.jpg;*.html;*.exe;*.dll;*.mp3;*.ogg;*.flac;*.mp4;*.m4a;*.msi;*.csv;*.7z;*.zip;*.img;*.rar;*.tgz;*.tif;*.img;*.reg;*.jar;*.sys;*.ini;*.js;*.php;*.json;*.xml;*.msf;*.dat;mail*.*;*.idx;*.sqlite;*.mk...

in File name appears to truncate after 203 characters but I want to add more file extensions. I do not know whether other extensions are used in the search but just not displayed?

There is no fixed limit to the number of characters used in the File name field. The file name field can keep scrolling to the right.

I've now tested it, and that seems to be correct.

However, a very long list is not retained in the dropdown list of previous filenames. The terms in the list are still truncated and the search only uses the terms in that shortened list.
That is a current restriction on the Lite version. It will be increased in a future version.
