Can one search for words being in a title and / or folder / document / content independent of the order of the words and the amount of words separating them? So it is the a search like Google it does by default.

E.g.: searching for
"bites" "horse" (in the search field) or
"killer" "head"
or
hippo" "horn" "poodle"
"poodle" "hippo" "horn" "killer"
etc.

would find a title like that:

Title: "A killer poodle bites a small hippo and a horse with a horn on the head"

And it would find a document / folder like that:

more text...more text...more text...more text...more text...more text...more text...
A killer poodle bites a small hippo and a horse with a horn on the head. More text...more text...more text...more text...more text...more text...more text...more text...more text...more text...more text...more text...more text...more text...more text...more text...more text...more text...more text...more text...more text...more text...more text...more text...more text...more text...more text...more text...more text...more text...more text...more text...more text...more text...more text...more text...more text...more text...more text...more text...more text...more text...more text...more text...more text...more text...more text...more text...more text...more text...

This is from page 210 of the manual. The methods you can search by are:

Exact Phrase: the default method. What is typed into the field will be queried precisely
as it is typed in. “the book” will only match documents that have the phrase
“the book” as written, not documents that just have the word “book”. It will also
return documents that contain “the books”. For exclusive matching, use Whole
Word (below).

All Words: every word entered into the search field must appear in the selected data
type. Documents which only match some of the words will not be returned. Words
can be entered in any order. Analogous to logical AND.

Any Word: queried documents must contain at least one of the words typed into
the search field. Analogous to logical OR.

Whole Word: unlike any of the above search methods, the term supplied will only
match whole words. A search for “Jo” will only return documents with that word,
not documents that also contain “Joseph”.

So I think All Words should do what you want.

Yes, you are right. Grat! Unbelievable, I was convinced (don't know why) none of those options would do it.

Thank you very much!
