Search by filename & full paths

Recommended Posts

AFAICT, there is no option to use filenames in searches, this is sorely missing for a collection with messy tags[*].  In addition, there is an option to search using directory names, but this applies for just one directory -- for example, if there is a file at a path A/B/xxx.mp3, searching for "A B" will not find it.  Combining both would find it if I search for "A B", "xxx", "A xxx", etc.

([*] And yes, I know I can change tag values, but I have good reasons to not to that.  I often have tags in a different language, but would like to search using the filename which is in English.)

Search will return  results from a matching folder name, or a filename, but you're right that you can't do one search for a word from a foldername and a word from a contained filename in one go.

Yes, I know.  It won't even search all folders in the hierarchy (my A/B/x example).

That's why I'm posting it as a feature request.
