Groups patterns together.
- The search is not based on an index but instead scans the entire collection looking for strings of letters.
- Word boundaries have no special significance. A space is treated as any other letter, except that runs of spaces are collapsed.
- If you select “Ignore Spaces”, you can search for sequences of letters without regard for word division.
- Accents and diacritics are normally ignored, but if you include an accent, that accent becomes significant for the search.
- Letter case is ignored unless you use an uppercase letter in the search pattern. Then case becomes significant throughout the pattern.
- Patterns can be joined using the operators listed above and grouped with parentheses.
- Double-clicking on a word (or phrase) will search for other instances of that word.
- The built-in Greek keyboard can be turned on or off by clicking the icon to the left of the search box.
