When a Quick Search criteria uses a wildcard symbol (*, ?, [ or ]), Ultra Recall basically does a Matches Wildcard type search for you behind the scenes (searching all string Attributes and keywords). In your case, since the @ will currently never exist in (auto-generated) keywords, Ultra Recall ignores it. The resulting * search (of keywords), which will obviously find all Info Items.

The workaround for now (actually it isn't so much a workaround as a more specific search) is to change your search to be an Advanced Search with a criteria of Item Title matches wildcard @* . This should work as expected.

We can change Ultra Recall to allow the @ character at the beginning of keywords which will make these searches work as expected on keywords as well...
Just jumping in to say this is precisely the reason I puchased Ultra Recall after using it only a few days - responsive developers. Well, that and it's a very useful program
