Since JSesh version 7.2, it's possible to search in JSesh document (it was about time!).
It's possible to search either in the current document or in all the JSesh documents contained in a given folder.
To Search in the current document, you can use the menu entries:
You then need to describe what you want to search. JSesh is quite powerful here. You can both search for hieroglyphic and non-hieroglyphic text.
By default, the search will look for corresponding sequences of signs, regardless of their layout. If you want to search for a specific layout, check the “Whole Quadrant Match” box.
Searching for hieroglyphic text can be quite simple. Type the text you are looking for in the search field (see picture below), and press the “search” button.
By default, the search will look for sequences of signs, regardless of their layout. If you want to search for a specific layout, check the Whole Quadrant Match box.
You will notice a number buttons below the text field. They allow you to include more variability in the text you are looking for.
The “*” button allows you to search for sequences of non-strictly consecutive signs. For instance, 𓁹“*”𓏏 will search for sequences of signs containing 𓁹, then possibly a number of other signs, then 𓏏.
