Find phrases

FindYou can find a specific phrase either in a phrase menu or in the main program window:

Phrase menu search

  1. Open a phrase menu.
  2. Start typing any part of the phrase description you wish to find.
  3. Click the phrase or press the confirmation hotkey to insert it or right-click for additional options.

Right-click the magnifier icon to configure the search feature.

Program window search

  1. Open the program window.
  2. Right-click the magnifier icon above the phrase tree to configure the scope search.
  3. Click into the search box below the tree view (or press CTRL+F).
  4. Enter the search term.
Matches are displayed in a flat list:
  • Click any item in the list of search results to edit it.
  • Double-click any item to show it within the phrase tree structure.
  • Click into the search input field to switch back to the flat search result list.

Begin the query with a double quote characters if matches must begin with the query term. For example, the search term "Beam would find the phrase 'Beam me up' (but not 'Jim Beam').

Enclose the query with double quote characters if you want to search for exact matches. For example, the search term "Tesla" would find phrase 'Tesla' (but skip the phrase 'Tesla is cool').

Two sequent double quote characters ("") help to find empty contents.

Find & replace search

  1. Right-click any phrase folder in the tree view.
  2. Select command Find & Replace from the context popup menu (or press CTRL+H).
  3. Fill-in the search & replace boxes.

PhraseExpress only searches in the selected folder (and optionally subfolders).
