Is TB able to search for the contents of attachments. For example, inside doc or pdf files

Vadych,

Thank you for posting.  Yes, it certainly can. TheBrain on macOS will use Spotlight indexing and on Windows, Windows Desktop Search indexing to find search results inside your internal attachments. TheBrain 10 (currently in development) will also find search results inside external attachments (shortcuts to files connected to Thoughts)

Thanks,
Matt

Matt, thanks for the clarification.
For some reason, TB does not find entry into pdf. Windows Desktop Search finds them

TB10 can search within a pdf linked to a thought?

Yes. One of the new features in v10 is the ability to search within linked attachments - rather than just internal attachments as it was in v9.

Thank you,
Matt

Running TB10.0.23 on Win7

Just now discovered a search on the name of a linked attachment brings up nothing.

A new help desk ticket will be created, with screenshot and output log.

One drawback in the search based on Windows indexing has been that it does NOT index as deeply as previous versions of the Brain with its own internal search function. I use many pdf files with attachments within the 'parent' pdf itself. I can search contents of the main pdf without difficulty, but contents of the pdfs attached within the 'parent' pdf do NOT show up in any searches. In v.8, the internal indexing used by the Brain handled this with no problem.

It has severely crippled my use of the Brain as a knowledge base.
