It would be really useful if the dot character '.' can be used to filter out symbols that are not end with specified name. For example, "LineColor." should show symbols that ends with LineColor, such as GetLineColor/SetLineColor/etc.
".LineColor." should display symbol that has exactly the same name as LineColor.

Thanks.

Because VA has already use dot as the symbol start anchor indicator, I thought it would be easier to remember, but surely we can use other character.

We are considering doing this, in addition to dot one suggestion is to use < and > to mark the start end end of a symbol, since these are the tokens used to mark start and end when doing an IDE regular expression find:
