  • Topic Center search
    What it does for you: Helps you find something inside a topic. Searches just the items in the present Topic Center;
    Searches for:
    A phrase or string that you provide (no keywords, no wildcards);
    Where it looks:
    In the names of all topics and occurrences appearing anywhere in the Topic Center (and in the names of files linked to these occurrences).
    How to start it:
    While viewing the Topic Center, click the Local Search button in the toolbar or press Ctrl+S.


This type of search helps you to locate an occurrence or loosely associated topic (see Tunneling through to more ideas) when in a Topic Center.
