 +===== Search in folders =====
 +
 +This is a very powerful feature of JSesh : it can search in all the glyph files contained in a folder (and its sub-folders). In a way, you can use your texts (including translations typed in JSesh) as a kind of rough linguistic database.
 +
 +To use this function, use the menu **Edit/Find in Folder**. Then select the "​root"​ folder for your search. ​
 +In the example below, I'm looking for attestation of Atum, using a fairly generic wildcard. Note the use of [...] to include variant signs (some possible determinatives are however missing in this search, I leave it to the interested reader as an exercice). Also note the length I have set to limit the //false positive// results. Remember that this length includes the whole result, not only the part skipped over by the "​*"​.

 +Once the search is started, the occurrences will appear in the list below the search form. Double-clicking on an occurrence will open the corresponding document.
