Excluded words [message #1020] Thu, 09 April 2020 23:31 Go to next message

I would like to start a search where a certain word does not occur in the
document.
The help describes that this is possible with "-".

My example is: "Bordasch -Ingo" (without quotation marks)

Unfortunately, the documents in which both words occur are displayed. The
setting "-" is ignored.
See attachment.

Have I understood something wrong?

Either use:
[contents] [matches the FoxTrot query] [Bordasch -Ingo]

Or:
[contents] [includes all of the words] [Bordasch]
[contents] [does not include any of the words] [Ingo]
[all criteria (AND)]


When using [includes all of the words], most options described in the FoxTrot Query Syntax help do not apply (except, for example, quoted strings).
