"File Name" is not a selectable field in search

Post by coupland » Thu Jun 04, 2020 5:00 pm

I noticed today that File Name is not one of the selectable fields in Search. So I can't easily search for all files with "Panorama" and "Caribbean" in the name, for example.

I also noticed that it works if I choose "All fields", so the functionality is already in the tool. It just seems the searches would be faster, and it's more intuitive to be able to actually choose "File Name" in the GUI.

Keep up the great work, best image viewer and sorter ever!
