How do I filter based on the presence of a {query}?

it somehow seams wrong


It is wrong. Less/more than X is for numbers. What should “less than ‘.’” mean?

Isn’t there some more elegant way to do it?


Do what?

@JolinM You could just do "If query is equal to [blank], take the first path, else (when there is a query) do the "else" action". Sounds like it should do what you want?


Or I may have misunderstood your question, in which case, please provide more details :)

I thought "." was a wildcard in GREP 🤔.


If you mean in regular expressions, yes it is. But if you're trying to match a regular expression, you need to set it to "matches regex", not "is less than".

I actually want to filter based on the presence of absence of a query. My keyword has «Argument optional».


Then use "is equal to" or "is not equal to" and leave the box empty.


FWIW, the correct regular expression for this case would be .+ (i.e. one or more characters). If you just use . that means “one, and only one, character”
