Hi everybody



it happens to me quite often to look for a short word in the glossary (\"cap\", for example) and the search results in many other words containing \"cap\".

A suggestion: what about adding a \"match whole word only\"-box in the search function?



Have a nice week,

Carla

While not the ideal solution, it works... Oct 14, 2002

when you do your search, just include a space after \"cap\" so it would be \"cap \", or surround the word with spaces \" cap \".

I've been having problems too Oct 16, 2002

Yes, a good idea, but I have had some nonsensical results bearing no relation to the term sought at all. See my posting \"Terms Search\" in \"Bugs\".
