Hello!

Please do something with Binder search in mobile Scrivener. By default it performs searching by exact phrase which is a really bad thing in most cases. Can you make it like in Bear, Ulysses, iA Writer, desktop Scrivener, etc, where searching by default goes using AND operator, but if you put your phrase into "…" it would perform exact search. It’s very hard to find things now :(

I agree it would be nice to have two different search modes, but I prefer the "exact phrase" method. So I don't see this as nearly as awful. But we both agree that it's desirable, so perhaps the developer will consider it for a spot in his infinite to-do list, right after the crashing bug and the nasty project list interface problem.
So you know where I'm coming from:
  • I write fiction.
  • I'm not an L&L employee.
  • Mac Scrivener 3.1.5, MacBook Air 11, MacOS 10.14.6 (Mojave)
  • IOS Scrivener 1.2.1; iPhone 8+, iPad 6; i(Pad)OS 13.3
