Hi,

In my library there are mp3, m4a, and flac files. When I type "mp3", and "m4a" in search field, however, no results show. That is not the case for "flac", which does show results.

What is the reason for this? And how to show results?

Thanks

Testing a custom search works as expected. 
".Ext is mp3"
Download the latest MusicBee v3.5 patch from here.
Unzip into your MusicBee directory and overwrite existing files.

If I type mp3 in the search box I do get 1 result instead of the expected 5173
This is because there is a text with mp3 in it in the comment tag.

This is when using "search all fields"
When using  "search all fields" + Filename, I get the right number

Obvious "search all fields" doesn't include filename or the .Ext

Right, I did not know about custom search. Thanks.

@vincent kars Thanks. I did not know about different options of search. Now it works with the "+ Filename."

Why did the "search all fields" work for "flac" though?
