Papeeria News, January 14: full-text search

TL;DR: you can use full-text search in Papeeria. Hit Ctrl+Shift+F.

Did you ever find yourself trying to guess which file out of dozens in your thesis includes  that figure? Or maybe trying to recall a specific LaTeX trick which made Beamer slide happy? Wanted to search across all your TeX files? Well, now you can. We just have launched a preview of full-text search.

Button which opens full-text search dialog sits in the top-right corner. You can use a handy keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Shift+F (or Cmd+Shift+F on Mac OSX) to access the dialog.

Full-text Search dialog with search results

Full-text search returns both full and partial matches and understands morphology, so you don't have to type extremely precise queries. Search results are ranked and we show the best results first. In case if you need more results, you can request them by clicking "load more" link.

In the search result snippets matches are highlighted, and clicking a snippet will open the matching file in the new tab and will position the caret exactly at the snippet start.

Full text search is in preview which means that it may not work perfectly sometimes. We're monitoring how it behaves and will update it with bugfixes and enhancements in the course of the next few weeks. Don't hesitate to file an issue or drop us an email if search is broken or works wrong.

This is a premium feature. Users who are subscribed to paid plan Delta can search across all projects which they own or collaborate in. Those who use free Epsilon plan can search currently opened project only.
