The following optional syntax is supported for searches:
Use " " quotation marks to search for a phrase. E.g., "Find this particular phrase"
Use + directly before a word that is required and must be found. Use - directly before a word that must not be found. E.g., +This -That
Use AND, OR, NOT (typed in uppercase) as operators between words. E.g., This AND That | "This phrase" OR "That phrase" | This NOT That
Use ( ) parentheses to group search terms into separate clauses. E.g., (This OR That) AND ("This phrase" OR "That phrase")
Use the ~ tilde character and a numeric proximity value to find words that are close together in any order. Wrap the words in " " quotation marks and add ~ directly after the closing ". E.g., "These words together"~20 will find the words within 20 words of each other.
Use the ^ caret character and a numeric 'boost' value directly after a word to boost the importance of a word. Try 2-10 for a small boost or 40 or more for a high boost. E.g., This That^5
Use ? and ✱ as wildcard characters. ? matches a single character. E.g., W?rd finds 'word' and 'ward'. ✱ matches zero or more sequential characters. E.g., Wor✱ finds 'word', 'world', 'worthy', etc.
