Multi-field search

Is there any way in Calibre to search multiple fields at one time? Right now I can only search one field but with over 1000 books in my library, that isn't always what I need.

For example, say I want all books I haven't finished (#fini:N) plus all that don't have an A Rate (#a_rate:false). Is there any way to make that happen in a single search?

Thanks.

I figured it out. It requires a space between the search criteria

#fini:N #a_rate:false

You might want to look at calibre's search documentation. There are several variants that you might find useful. For example, using a space between items means all must be true ("and"). You can also do "or" and "not".
