Is it possible to search in filenames only? Smart search seems very powerful and smart most of the time but in some cases it's just confusing that it also searches in file contents. E.g. having thousands of documents in my dropbox folder searching for 'bill' will return too many documents to when I really only need files with the word 'bill' in their names. I see some posts from years ago saying it's not available and recommending to use the OS search functionality instead but I'm hoping this has been resolved in a more elegant and mobile friendly way since then.
This is crazy. How many years has Dropbox been in operation? 10 or more? If there is no function to search within filenames yet, it seems unlikely there will ever be. But this leads to another question: Is there any third party program that can take the search result from Dropbox and clean it up to delete searches that are of searches of content rather than filename?
Crazy indeed. I run a recursive descent directory listing on my PC hard drive every night via crontab on linux and scheduler on windows. The listing is a big file, too big to manage on a 3x5 phone screen. But nearly everything about dropbox is better than google drive.
