Advanced Text Search Functions


How can I use more advanced text search functions?
The Search Settings example just show exact text match examples!
I would like something more advanced, like:
- predefined like in Apple
  - includes
  - does not include
  - is
  - is not
  - is not empty
  - starts with
  - ends with
- scripting like in Spreadsheets (Google Sheets, MS Excel, etc.)
  - LEFT
  - MID
- wildcard like PostgreSQL
  - iLIKE "%.jpg"
- regular expression
  - /.+\.jpg$/i

I just had the same problem again, where I was trying to find images that don't include a keyword (eg. "doc"), and struggled with the valid syntax, eg:
CaptureTime 2022-8 and not (Keywords doc medical)
