Update. TechPubs now explains that "after" is on a stop list, which apparently cannot be altered. (?)
And if I search for "FUBAR SNAFU" I would get all pages with both FUBAR and SNAFU, although not necessarily next to each other.
That still seems weird to me.... a literal search is, well, literal.
Again, confirmation/refutation appreciated!
What you are finding is the current way that webhelp works. You don't say what your output is.
The simple lowcost solution for now is ZoomSearch as described on my site.
I do not know how this works for WebHelp, but for HTML help, searching for phrases is easy:
Use single or double quotes or round brackets:
By the way, with Google, I found a document on full text search with HTMLHelp / CHM files.
I modified that document (quite a bit) and I now include it with our CHM files (with a short link in the header via our RoboHelp template).
Thanks for the replies. ZoomSearch sounds very promising - I will add this information to the bug I filed. And see what comes of it.
