Searches - and, or
« on: 01. January 2008, 16:57:10 »
Hello,

I was just wondering if anyone figured out how to do searches in DfM on cell phones where you can specify 2 words and not have it considered as a single string.  Maybe have the option of searching for word1 AND word2 (but not necessarily together) or word1 OR word2.

For example, right now in my dictionary if I search for "fried chicken" it will look for that string specifically... but won't return entries for "fried crispy chicken".  I'd like it to return that one.  Any ideas?

Thanks!!
Ryan

Ah yes... thank you!  I missed that before.

But for some reason it doesn't work to use the "/" character in front of my search string.  Hmmm  I'll look into that more...  Anyways thanks!
