In Topic: Enhanced Searching, Marking, and Unmarking for Sources

This sounds like the way that Find Everywhere treats sources. Unfortunately, Find Everywhere has no function to focus the search on sources - it only has it's single "global" mode. Last time I ran a Find Everywhere on my database, seeking a particular phrase in any source, it took over one-and-a-half hours to complete. On a suggestion from TomH, I went to List > Source List and [Print]ed the whole list, then saved to PDF. I was then able to use Acrobat Reader's Edit > Find command to solve my need. Total time? A few minutes.


Find Everywhere really needs an ability to "focus".

An algorithm to calculate your proposed CLOSENESS would be very complex. And, I'm willing to bet, will never satisfy a wide variety of interested folks.

 Kennedy Hospital Australia .


You didn't use any punctuation in the example. Should there be a city and state between Hospital and Australia?
