I am a new user to HoudahSpot. I think I am going to like it very much.
I am trying to search for a Text Phrase in my DEVONthink Pro documents, however, no matter which way I have tried to find a particular phrase I do not get the text phrase. I get each individual word that I have typed which I don't want, but I don't get only the phrase that I do want. With DEVONthink I am used to enclosing a text phrase in double quotes, and from what I gather with HoudahSpot you do not use the quotes. So, can someone please help me with this? Thanks.

To search for a phrase you can use the "contains phrase" option. In the Refine pane: "Text Content" "contains phrase" "a phrase to search for" Do not type the quotes. For this to work the phase must exist as is in the text content of the file. You can use the Text Preview feature in HoudahSpot to see what the text content of a file looks like.
