OK, so I know if I want to search for specific word I type: something contains "wanted word".

But now I would like to find a word which is within quotations in a packet, but if I put double quotations like this ""wanted word"" the filter turns red as it is invalid command.

So is there a way to find word that is actually within quotation marks? Thanks

Use the "matches" operator and escape the quotation marks with a backslash.

Example: frame matches "\"wanted word\""
