how to search for a keyword in the Webhelp documentation

Discussion created by peter_grundler_automic on Apr 13, 2016

Since the HTMLHELP documentation is no longer supported you have to use WEBHELP. Unfortunately the functionallity of searching for a keyword got lost with this change :#

Neither the local installation (i.e. c:\automic\documentation\guides\webhelp\) nor the hosted content (docs.automic.com) supports wildcards any longer when entering a search term top right :/

After research I'm now using "Agent Ransack" - a free windows search utility that comes with a nice GUI, support of regular expression for content and other useful features.

-> which tool do you use to replace this capability? The windows build-in command "find" (or grep on Unix/Linux) gives results but doesn't look nice ...
