xnviewmp - search iptc:keywords "is any of"

Post by xerkon »

Hi, I am enjoying using xnview, so Thank You! I'm a little confused about the search option "is any of". I'm searching IPTC keywords but I never get any results using "is any of." I must not understand what "is any of" means. I'm using Version 0.72 x64 (Dec 19 2014).

Thanks!

That's kinda what I thought it meant but I just can't seem to get any results. For example, in first screenshot (below) I use "contains" and find 6 pictures with both the keywords "cake" and "november".

In second screenshot (below) I switch to "is any of" and type in november;cake and get no results.

I've never gotten results using "is any of," regardless of what I've typed in. In this particular instance I have the keyword "november" in 29 pictures so I would expect "is any of" to return 29 results. Unless I'm still not understanding something? Thanks!

Sorry for taking so long to get back to you. I uploaded 2 pics to dropbox, hopefully that works for you.

Hang on...I think I just discovered what is happening. All of my Keywords are capitalized and I was not capitalizing them when I was searching, however I was leaving the case sensitive box unchecked.

After a few more tests it seems that the "case sensitive" check box isn't working properly. When I search with "contains" it finds all words regardless of case or case sensitive box, whereas an "is any of" search seems to be always case sensitive, regardless of the check box status.
