Excluding modifier strangeness

I moved all my code snippets from my snippet manager to inkdrop and want to use the excluding modifier:

Unfortunately, if I enter ‘-tag:snippet’ the wheel spins forever and nothing is shown in the list.

Showing all snippets via ‘tag:snippet’ is working as well showing all non-snippet notes containing e.g. ‘bash’ via ‘bash -tag:snippet’.

How do I show all non-snippet notes?

Hi Mike,

Thank you for the question.
I’m afraid that searching notes in global scope with only excluding conditions is not supported.
It is not possible to support in SQLite FTS index by design.

The app should tell this on its UI. Thanks.
