Find: (paper OR clip OR paperclip) AND (pen OR pencil) NOT (nuggan or nugganite)
This search term could be simplified by removing redundant terms, thus:Was:
(paper OR clip OR paperclip) AND (pen OR pencil) NOT (nuggan or nugganite)Change to:
(paper OR clip) AND (pen) NOT (nuggan)
The modified search will filter "paperclip" and "pencil" and "nugganite" in the way you want, by default.
I don't think NF or CHS can do this in "live" search, because they are not boolean and they default to (AND). Boolean terms such as (AND), (OR), (NOT) are not usable.
However, CHS can (as we know) apply a boolean filter - i.e., including boolean terms - in its Virtual Folders.
perform a "live" boolean search filter (if you want it to), thus:
The ability to perform such a live boolean search - i.e., in a similar manner to InfoSelect - could be potentially very useful, and therefore would be a useful new requirement for both NF and CHS. (I know you have brought this up several times in the DC forum, in the context of CHS.)
