K find usage?

I recently found that I could use kfind to find files with several suffixes by 
entering *.pdf;*.txt;*.doc etc. There is nothing in the help files on this 
general area of use. Assuming that it provides a graphical interface for 
something in linux itself I could use man to find out what options are 
available. But just what does it use?

Alternatively - I want to search off root and exclude certain directories from 
the search. Is there a syntax to do that and/or to search a list of 
directories? In this instance I favour exclude to avoid a lot of typing.
