Is it possible to search for keywords only within the documents that are within the Manuscript folder? It would really be useful to have an option to limit search results to just these files.

I think you will have to do that on your mac. Far as I know, the powerful project search options that the Mac version has are not available on the iOS version. You just get the basics that the gear popup gives you. You can't even target keywords specifically like you can on the desktop version.

Thanks. That’s what I thought. I’ve got around it by assigning a different icon to manuscript texts so that they are more easily identified. It’s not ideal, but it’s the best I can think of.

It would be great if this feature could be added though please. @KB. :lol:

Another strategy is to use Inline Annotations. Use unique and/or invented words to tag particular things.
