[By Design] Command-F / Search for whole sentences or parts of whole sentences

Recommended Posts

Hi there, I tried using Publisher to search for whole sentences in a long document (168 pages). Is that even possible? Seems to me it dosen't work (Beta 337)

Best regards, Puck

What do you exactly mean by "whole sentences"?

Searching for more than 1 word and words + punctuation marks do work for me, for instance:
"
Description, Body text block with several lines and then –> back to style 1 (Year)."

In case a search contains "invisible characters" like line or paragraph breaks a simple copy/paste into F&R does not work, instead you need to replace those manually in the search text field via the pulldown menu to its left to make them work.

Also, a search may fail if it gets restricted by the filter list (< gear icon top right):

Thank you so much for your efforts. Now I get it.
