A couple of (perhaps) related questions:
First, if we are searching for instances of the @search tag which do have a value between parentheses (rather than examples like this sentence) is the best itemPath something like:
//@search > ''
Or is there a more direct way of distinguishing between tag instances which do have values and those which don't ?
Second, I notice that sentences like this with a mid text @search tag (but no search pattern) :
- Do appear in the saved filters list with a loupe icon
- Don't, in practice, function as saved filters
Not a real impediment, but might that perhaps be fixable with a fine-tuning of the underlying itemPath ?
( PS this came up in the context of a Keyboard Maestro macro for sorted views which merges any new/unseen Title @search(itemPath) patterns (in the active document) with the macro's own list of filters / reports. Hence the interest in an itemPath which searches for searches )
