Trying to find a group I accidentally moved with a drag and ran into this problem. The group name was Auto but trying a search “name==Auto kind==group” resulted in hundreds of hits because of another database with loads of folders named “auto”. So I added scope!=Sources but that doesn’t seem to be recognized.
Also, came across this in the docs:
“All terms are case-insensitive. You may, if you wish, use capitalization for proper names in a query, but DEVONthink will ignore case in interpreting the query.”
A case sensitive search would have easily solved this. I even tried name==[A]uto but it gets ignored.
First time I came across a database query that would not allow case sensitivity.
