 +===== Search in non-hieroglyphic texts =====
 +
 +Search is no longer restricted to the hieroglyphs. If you have typed translation or transliterations,​ you can search them too...
 +
 +Select **search in alphabetic texts**...
 +
 +{{ :​doc:​en:​textsearch.png?​nolink |Selection of type of search}}
 +
 +
 +Then type your text (search will disregard case) :
 +{{ :​doc:​en:​searchamon.png?​nolink |Searching for non-hieroglyphic texts}}
 +
 +
 +===== 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 "​*"​.
 +
 +{{ :​doc:​en:​foldersearch.png?​nolink |Search in folders}}
 +
 +
 +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.
