You dont need to input "*" and "?" to search with wildcards!
You can search in Nemo-Filemanager with:
searchtext .odt = *searchtext*.odt
(Also pay attention at the "empty space" between "searchtext" and ".extension")
I added Synapse as Alt+space to give me the extra search functionality I'd missed when comparing the Crunchbang/Ubuntu/Gnome 3.8 menu's with Mints. Try Synapse if you haven't already.
The 1.8.2 version's search is pretty good - in fact Nemo was finally good enough that I dropped spacefm. A very very nice interface and functionality. The only remaining issue is the underlying Ubuntu issue: when you transfer to a USB it reports the transfer finished and will eject it before it actually finishes. Conky with a sdc and sdd monitor permits me to visually check so that's ok.
A more powerful search would indeed be very useful. I often search for filenames with wild cards, that contain a certain string.
Instead of clicking on a lense and having to specify a directory, I prefer to have a search entry in the context menu. I.e. when right clicking with the mouse on a directory in Nemo, a dialogue box should appear that enables to search in this directory (similar to how it was done in Windows XP).
