Search string with square brackets doesn´t work

I have got some textfiles in my database which contain customer notes. The files are named with the customer name in square brackets. E.g. [customer_name]. The problem is, that I can´t search after that. All files with a customername in square brackets in the filename are ignored in the search field or as a criteria in a smart folder. Is there a workaround. This name convention is very important to me

That name convention won’t work in DEVONthink searches, which focus on alphanumeric characters. Square brackets are ignored, as are punctuation characters and other non-alphanumeric characters.

Ah, damn :wink:
OK, then I have to find something else in DEVONthink. Thanks for your quick reply.

I would advise you to reconsider a naming convention that conflicts with searchability of any kind. It may not look as pretty but underscores always work. Just a thought.
