Everything *not* indexing .md files?

Post by thyslo » Mon Oct 15, 2018 10:09 am

Hi voidtools dev,
thank you for creating Everything; over the years it has become one of the *must_have* tools on my PC.

In the later days I've got more and more markdown (.md) files on my storage location.

Strangely it seems that everything (using version 1.4.1.877) doesn't find them. I don't exclude .md files in the settings; only hidden and system files are excluded.

for example in one folder there is a .pdf and a .md file, both by the same name and different extensions. Typing the name in everything only brings me the .pdf file in the result window. Could this be a wrong setting or does everything maybe exclude files with an extension legth of 2?

Sorry, I've found the problem's solution.

Nothing wrong with Everything, it was my fault:D

Can be closed.

The file type selector on the right of the search field was set to "Documents". Setting it to "All files" was the solution.
