changing "search" behavior

How do i set the search function to default to the complete phrase without having to add quotes?

Click on the hourglass (1st image) to get search options (2nd image).

Thank you. I now remember having set this in the beginning of the beta.

Is the setting saved with options.

No. It is saved in the project with whatever was the last use.
