    Hi, how can I force DocFetcher to search for # symbols? I am using it to search markdown formatted text so I want to be able to find strings like "####".

    I've tried escaping them with a preceding backslash but that doesn't work.

    Hi,

    Unfortunately, this is not supported -- DocFetcher is primarily designed for searching text written in everyday language, not for code search. On a technical level, this limitation is probably due to the way the text is split up into words during indexing.

    Best regards
