Improve fulltext search for [FIELDNAME] IS PRESENT

Please improve the "undocumented" feature within fulltext searches:


Unfortunately this isn´t working on date fields at all.

Also if a field was formerly created as a text field and later redesigned to a date field it is not useable within "date fulltext searches". The only way I know, to make this working is to create new replica of the database after one has changed the field within all concerning documents. The reason for this, I think is, that a fieldtyp is somehow "bound" within the UNK table. This is not good at all.

    Fully agree on both points -- Support IS PRESENT with non-text fields and make it straightforward to clear the UNK table after a field type has changed.

    BTW, the IS PRESENT operator is not "undocumented", as you put it; see Notes Client Help > Search > Advanced search topics.
