It would be nice to have AND and OR available in searches. It seems as all searches are done by "OR" now, which can generate a lot of "false" hits.

Searches by Type are "OR" because a thought can't have more than one Type: Type1 AND Type2 would always lead to no results.

Searches by Tag are "AND" because a thought can have more than one Tag. Actually, it would be nice to have "OR" as an option. (I thought this was available but I can't find it. I must be thinking about some other software.)

Searches are "AND" when you're using combinations of the various types of search criteria, e.g. Types, Tags, Time, etc.

I think that the Search/Reports area should be expanded to offer more choices and an easier way of creating complex filters/queries.

Sorry, my fault... I was not referring to the type of the thought. If I search for two words in the attached files, then I would like to be able to narrow the search by AND instead of getting a lot of irrelevant hits because the search is done with OR.

Use + and -

For example Test +search both being required, or Test -search to remove all results for test which have search in them.

Actually, my fault. There was nothing in your original inquiry that mentioned the Report area.
Anyway, glad that zenrain came to the rescue. As usual. ðŸ˜‰

Wow - thanks, I didn't know that facility existed! 

Very useful - yet another item to add to the TB9 Documentation...
