Expanding the FIND function to include Document Titles

Post by Rex » Tue Dec 29, 2015 2:31 am

Hi - I am a very happy user of MyInfo (for over 1 year now). Having said that, there is one feature that I really would like to see in the product: Expanding the FIND function to include Document Titles. I am using MyInfo to assist me in writing a book, and often I have key information (words) in the Titles of the documents. My searches never find those words. I do understand that there is a (cumbersome) workaround to this FIND feature: exporting all the documents found in that particular file - and then do a search within the resulting RTF file - but it would be way easier if the "Find" function included the Titles of each of the documents in the file. Thanks,
Rex

That hasn't been my experience at all; searches always turn up words or phrases in my document titles.

Have you tried re-indexing the topic (under "Tools" on the menu bar)?

Apart from what Bill already said, there is an option with which you can achieve exactly what you want:

By clicking on Tools ---> Go to Document (or by pressing Ctrl + G) a window will open from which you can search directly and exclusively for words which are in the title of a document.

You can also also transfer a corresponding command to your toolbar so that you can open the search window always with a single mouseclick. That's the way I use it.

You can find this command here:
Tools --> Customize --> Tab "Commands" --> Categories: "Tools" ---> Commands: "Go to Document"
From there you can drag and drop this command to your toolbar.
