The Full Text Search feature in Case Notebook™ allows you to search your case documents for specific terms. To run a Full Text Search, complete these steps:
Formatting a Full Text Search
Using the Root Expander
Use the root expander (!) to retrieve words with variant endings. The root expander must always be placed at the end of a term. For example, type contribut! to retrieve contribute, contributed, contributor, contributing, or contribution.
Using the Universal Character
Use the universal character (*) to represent one variable character. You can place the universal character anywhere in a term except at the beginning. For example, type gr*w to retrieve grew or grow.
Use connectors to specify the relationships that should exist between search terms in your retrieved documents.
