For several months now, at least 2 new versions of WF pro, I have been unable to make the concordance run properly on short phrases / a few words.

Case in hand to, I search for "battery slot". I get tons of sentences with "battery" and with "slot", and in the middle of tens of returns, lies my one rough diamond that encompasses the phrase "battery slot".

So WF pro only does concordance on a word-per-word basis now? It used to search what you ask for, not cut it to pieces...

PS: No amount of quotes, single or double, is able to solve this. Nor does the "exact" option...

Do not use quotes and tick exact Jan 2, 2016

Hello Thomas,

Have you tried NOT using quotes and ticking exact match?

Happy new year,

It works Thank you! Jan 4, 2016

Indeed... Thank you!

I guess this must have been checked by default and I unchecked it by chance a couple months ago. nd I always tried to add quotes for sentences afterwards...

Thank you again!
