 I really miss the NEAR feature, which I used frequently when it was available. Is it possible to have it back?

I think it was dropped during a move to a new kind of database for the CDS index.

Thank you, Copernic, for improvements made to the NEAR function in February 2022.

"Search containing phrases is now supported ("Word1 Word2" NEAR Word3)".

In Copernic Desktop search, we support most of the search operators:

Refine a search with search operators

Please note that certain characters are ignored by CDS, and thus considered as white spaces such as (*) asterisk.

You cannot search for example *.pdf in the keyword search to display all pdf files. However, you can go in the refine section to type .pdf, and search for * sign, then you will have that same result will all .pdf files displayed.

You can also use our indexed properties to search directly in keyword box. For example: @extension=pdf or @keywords=abcd to search for files.
