To search for text, enter a query in the Search panel, and click the Search button.
For query syntax rules, refer to the “Search query syntax” section below.
With search options you can limit keyword searching to specific item parts or attributes:
• Title / Subject
• Summary & Description (includes e mail headers)
• Path & File name
• Authors & E-mail Addresses
• Message Headers
To see the search options, click the Options button under the search text field. The options box will be displayed below the button.
Select the options for properties that you want to include in your search, and deselect those you want to exclude. Your selected search options will be stored and used for future searches until you change them.
Note: As a reminder the Options button will show a yellow triangle when options are deselected.
To hide the options box, click the Options button again. If you have made any changes, the icon on the Options button will change to a yellow warning sign as a reminder that you have changed options that will affect your searches.
Limiting the search scope
To restrict searching to items from specific sources only, go to the Sources panel. In the sources list, mark the sources you want to search and unmark those that you want to exclude from searching. New searches will be performed only on the selected sources.
Use the “Check/uncheck all” check box to select or deselect all sources in the list.
Using Includes and Excludes
Including search terms
Including a search term means that only those search results that contain the included search term will be shown.
Example: The user enters the search term “Paris” and includes this term with the dropdown menu on the Search button. The selections panel in the Cluster Map shows that “Paris” is an included search term. As long as this search term is present, only clusters with items that contain the term “Paris” will be shown.
Excluding search terms
Excluding a search term means that only those search results that do not contain the excluded search term are shown.
Example: The user enters the search term “Paris” and excludes this term with the dropdown menu on the Search button. The selections panel in the Cluster Map shows that “Paris” is an excluded search term. This means that from now only clusters with items that do not contain the term “Paris” will be shown.
