Search: syntax for finding empty properties

Use case or problem

I recently added a “project” property to my daily log pages, to allow easier querying. Now I would like to find the pages where I forgot to provide values for “project”.

@gino_m already provided a regex-based workaround in this Help post, but a native solution for searching “empty” properties would be a great thing to have!

Proposed solution

My first thoughts would be a search syntax like:

  • [project:empty]
  • [project:""]
  • [project:]

… but I’m not the greatest Obsidian search syntax expert.

Current workaround (optional)

See the regex solution by @gino_m in this Help post.
