Can I find a record whose title _starts with_ a word?

I’ve got two records:

“Book: something something”
“I read a book today”

I want to do a search (preferably a smart group) that only returns records beginning with “book”, so it would return “book: something something” but not “I read a book today”.

I don’t think there’s a way to do that from the search panel, but thought I’d check…

This should work.

thank you!!

I just want to follow up on this and thank you again… I’m finding it absolutely perfect for my needs. I like to keep “thingy lists” in DEVONthink, but as separate entries… so I’ve got things like:

  • Book: Writing to Learn
  • Course: Learning How to Learn
  • Maybe: Live in Italy
  • Movie: The Year of Living Dangerously
  • Project: new dog fence

And by setting up smart groups, I have instant access to my different “thingy lists”. Pretty cool :slight_smile:

Glad to hear it was useful!
