Please be aware that much of the software linked to or mentioned on this forum is niche and therefore infrequently downloaded. Lots of anti-virus scanners and so-called malware detectors like to flag infrequently downloaded software as bad until it is either downloaded enough times, or its developer actually bothers with getting each individual release allow listed by every single AV vendor. You can do many people a great favor when encountering such a "problem" example by submitting them to your AV vendor for examination. For almost everything on this forum, it is a false positive.

I seen no other comments about this.

Would it be possible to have the ability to enable case-insensitivity to the search for the extended search? The others seem to work fine.

See GIF.
 I'll think about it  .. but quite busy on something else atm
 Any update on this?

I managed to get around this by using $caps2(%album%) but it's not the best solution.

Also, is there any chance you could have a setting to ignore certain characters in the filter such as:
Code: [Select]

I've been using:
$caps2($replace(%album%, ,-, ,–)) but it's not very trustworthy seeing as there's no regex title formatting functionality in FB or I could use something like this:
$caps2($regexp(%album%, ,\W))

which would ignore all but a-z and A-Z characters in the search box.

Not wanting to sound picky but \W will not ignore the underscore (_), and digits for that matter

 It is a little picky considering regex is not even possible and yes, that's true. I was in a rush giving the example which was just to show (an example).

i'm sorry if i'm being dense but does quicksearch allow you to exclude search results?
i am trying to create a playlist that does not include items that do not have ## in the %title%
is this possible?

Can I display Quicksearch form as a element of top menu rather than as a separate window?
I don't know what you mean exactly with "a element of top menu". You would need the Columns UI in case it is this.

Apart from that, in both the DUI and the CUI foo_quicksearch can be used not only as a popup instance (what you do not like) but also as an element integrated into the UI.

Default User Interface's Layout Editing Mode

I have Quicksearch toolbar incorportated in DUI as an element. I think it is restricting the width I can re-size my Foobar2000 window to. When I maximise the window with the quicksearch toolber in the layout, it enlargens but not fully. If I remove the quicksearch element from the layout then I can re-size the window however I like, and the maximise button works as expected.
Am I doing something wrong or a setting I am missing maybe?

Hi guys,

anyone knows why it's not possible (at least for me) to add new entries to context menu? Are there restrictions to Windows 10 nowadays? Only artist, album and title are added to context menu by default, but selecting a different query in quicksearch preferences and activating context menu for it doesn't add it and gets instantly deactivated again.

Thanks i.a.!

EDIT: Ok, i just noticed, that after every change in preferences i have to press "change"-button for it to work... SORRY! ;-)
