I can’t reproduce this - cases sensitive works fine for me. Could you put together a small example project in which the bug can be seen and send it to me please?
Thanks,
Keith

Hi,

I still couldn’t reproduce the problem in the project you sent me. It wasn’t set to “Case Sensitive” in the state you sent it, but after I selected “Case Sensitive”, searching for “Green” brought up only “Green Card”, and searching for “green” highlighted only “green sweater”…

All the best,
Keith

How odd. Still reproducible here.

Attached same project but with Case Sensitive set.

Oops, I forgot that search settings don’t get saved anywhere - they only exist for the session, so of course case sensitive wouldn’t have been set when I opened your project. Anyway, setting case-sensitive and “text only” worked fine for me still…
All the best,
Keith

Many thanks for the prompt action. One more unsolved mystery of little consequence.

PS
Scrivener is still easily the most fit-for-purpose software I’ve used in 30 years.
