search terms should not be restricted

Postby gwhiz@gwhiz » Sat Sep 03, 2011 4:34 am


I'm having a problem with using right click inside a Finale window.. but I'm unable to search the Forums for the term right click or "right click". The search facility on the forums says that both the words are too common. So I had to start a new topic, even though there may be other threads on it, just because the search facility thinks it is smarter than I am.

Why not remove restrictions from search terms?

I'm not an admin, but for what it's worth I'd like to state my support to your request. I'va faced exactly the same problem while searching for "time signature". I want to find out how to write complex time sigs, like 6/8=2/4, but the two search terms rejected in the same way as yours. To admins, please let ppl search the way THEY (not you) think it's most helpful. Thanks.

Okay, it took awhile but I think we've managed to honor this request. It means that your searches may now return a lot of results, but we rebuilt the index and you can search more broadly. Searching for "Right Click" now returns results.
