Search with Boolean operator only within files, not including folder name

 Hello all.  I'm trying to search all my files that have both the terms "Logocratic" and the term "proposition."  I try the search "Logocratic AND proposition" [I do NOT include the quotation marks] and I get a great many results for files that are within a folder whose title includes the word "Logocratic," and that term is highlighted in yellow in my search results, but the actual file does not contain that term.  How can I search for only files that have those two words, not also for files within a folder that has one or another of those words?  Thanks in advance.

In early versions of CDS, the results pane showed folders containing the search term as items and they had a folder icon to identify them easily. I think files that contained the search term only in their parent pathnames were not listed. I miss this feature.

It would be nice to have a tick-box in the Refine pane:  Include Folder Names. If ticked, each folder matching the search term would be listed, but not if the term is part of its parent path.

I am currently in my trial period. I want to use CDS to replace Evernote. I only use Evernote to easily retrieve scanned documents that have not been OCR'd. 

I can see how a search by folder could be helpful if folder structured is maintained. Coming from EN, the only thing important is the file itself. If there was a way to turn off searching the folder names, CDS would be an easy replacement. I love the idea of having my personal files stored locally.

Otherwise, Im liking the software but because of this issue, I am not sure if I will buy after the trial is over.
