dolaunch, dosearch and search folder combination alias trouble
« on: December 16, 2011, 01:33:50 PM »
Minor issue. I often use FARR to pass searches to Everything through an alias like this:
Everything Search: $$1 | dolaunch C:\Program Files\Everything\Everything.exe -search "$$1"
That most often works great. But sometimes I start a FARR search using another alias with a search folders parameter, like so:
^(?:te|tes|test) (.*)
test $$1 | dosearch +test_modifier $$1

When I first type "test NNNNN" the second alias runs. If I then double tab space ("test NNNNN  ") the first alias runs. But FARR doesn't pass "test NNNNN" to Everything. It passes "+test_modifier NNNNN". Can I tweak the aliases to in such a case pass the exact phrase in the inputbox?
