two q's re searching

  1. I’m having trouble with phrase-based searching. I looked for “cognitive ability,” for example, in a library filled with sociology and psychology papers. It turned up not just the phrase but every example of “cognitive” or “ability.”

  2. Is there any easy way to move from one highlighted search “find” to the next? I find myself scrolling down looking for the yellow highlighting, which is inefficient.

If you search for two words, it should only find records that contain both (somewhere in the document). If you include quotation marks, it should find only records containing them in that order.

If you don’t think the search is working correctly, please create a test library containing just one or two files and send it to me along with the query that you tried.

You could use the Find, Find Next, and Find Previous commands in the Edit menu.
