Hello rikona,

its clear, that there are no advanced options in  the lense. But I mean, it finds not all files with a specified search string. I dont no if the search only takes place in the home-directory or in the highest level of a given directory. My question: where seraches the lens? And can I somewhere say, where the lens have to search. It definitivly not search in the directorys i have configurated at the recoll-configuration-dialog.

regards, Kai
