Filter on "No Format Available"?

In throwing my various ebook folders into calibre, I've ended up with multiple copies of some books, in different formats, and others I ended up with books named differently but otherwise exact copies of the files.

I ran a de-dup app to remove the exact duplicate files, and now I have a bunch of entries in calibre that have all the metadata, but no actual file associated with them. Is there a "Format:" search that I could use to find books without any formats at all? Or some other way to search for metadata not bound to a book?

I just tried this after installing .64 today, and it's not working. I definitely have some that show 'none' for formats when I select the book, but when I search "Format:False" it doesn't display any results.

Works fine for me as long as put the terms in lower case (as given by Kovid) and not with a leading capital letter.

It is possible this is a bug and it is meant to be case independent?

Even without the capitals, I'm still not getting any results.
