Searching for a case sensitive string (or a string with colon)?

henrikba says:
Hi,
Is there a way I can search "case sensitively" on a string?

Reason; I prefix some tasks with codes for easier sorting (mostly when they are few enough to not create a tag), and to keep lists sorted. How can I search to match
* "PRI: Task 1" and "PRI: Task 2",
...but not
"Remember to set priority for milk-task"
?

If I search "PRI", I get all of the above examples.
Seems I cannot search for a string containing a colon either; e.g. searcing "PRI:" returns no results.


I've searched here, but posts about "case sensitive" only covers the case sensitivity of operators (createdBefore vs createdbefore).

Hi henrikba,
Case sensitivity won't help here (it's not possible to search for "PRI" versus "pri") but searching for

name:"PRI:"

should work. Hope this helps!
