searching keywords in iOS

Post by MjRNeuro »

I'm trying to search for keywords in my refs within iOS. In Mac, I can type two separate keywords, which returns only refs containing both keywords. In iOS, typing two keywords yields no hits. Is there a way to search for multiple keywords in iOS?

Some global changes are required to solve this problem, so we will try to improve the internal search functionality for all fields later this year.

I just want to support this request (and extend it from talking about keywords to anything, as this problem applies to abstract, title etc). I love Bookends for iOS for everything else, but the search function frustrates me almost every day I use it. Trying to use iOS Bookends to quickly find a paper is severely hampered by not being able to use any boolean operators, or at the least an AND. I imagine you have some problems with the way the database is setup or something about syncing etc.

Serge, is there any progress on this issue? :fingers-crossed:
