One of the most annoying things abuot WF Pro, compared to Classic, is the inability to search for an exact phrase when context searching TMs. Has anyone discovered a method of doing this? It is really annoying to come up with a load of irrelevant results that just happen to have the key words scattered around in them.

Have you tried using the + operator? For example: big+black+lorry. This will return all exact matches for this phrase.

That is the standard format in which a selected phrase is shown in the context search window and it doesn't work for me, I just get every segment in the TM that has all of the words but not necessarily consecutively. I have also tried putting the + signs in myself, to no avail.
