There are times when I’d like a more fine-grained search tool. Does anyone know if Scrivener can do this, or if there is some ad-on?
For example, I’m looking for the word “table”, and I want to see how I’ve used it. But going through the Binder Search Collection is too cumbersome. I just want to see each occurrence I’ve used the term, and some context, maybe the sentence, or two sentences, or +/- a certain number of words.
I don’t think there’s anything like that, but you can use CMD-g to search for the next instance that matches in your search collection. That’s worked for me.
I agree, this would be great. In fact I think I posted something similar about six months ago. Done right it would let scrivener replace QDA software that runs $600+ .
Actually I was thinking of this post re including the document path, also concerned with improving search results:
