Search Question

Hi,

Probably the dumbest question you'll get today, but how do I search for an exact string of text, without getting hits containing each of the words individually?

Thanks!

you might try it with quotations symbols around the text.

This is what I have on my screen. That may be why my suggestion did not help.

The Google search worked, thanks, but I only see the Google search in the web version, not the app.

I use the Advanced Search option under the search pull down. Putting the multi-word phrase I want to search for in quotes works for me. I like many of the other options available there too.

I don't know if that's available in the app version. I stick with the web version.

Same here. Works really well. I rarely use the app since the web version has more functionality.
