Search for exact string
 
Is there a way, while using the custom search filter (or another way), to search for an exact string?

For example, I'm looking for anything that has "DC 18" exactly somewhere within the article. By default, it seems to search for any article that contains both "DC" and "18", regardless of placement of the text.

Alternatively, a way to search inside the article suffix would also work for what I'm trying to do.

I'm trying to tag a whole crapton of stuff that I didn't think to tag before, and this search would take a couple days of work down to a few hours.

placing the phrase in quotes works for me.

That's the first thing I tried and doesn't work at all. In fact, the quotes are removed from the searchbox when you go back in.

What version you on? 253 here because of import bugs.

I installed both 254 and 255 just so I could do this, but getting the same thing. I'm still getting results that don't match.

I have an Invisible Sun realm that I've been updating the past several days. I searched for "1 Wound", and while most of the results include that exact phrase, I do have a couple of false positives, like an article that has the phrase "6 (+1 die)" and the word "Wounds", but not "1 Wound".

Edit: I'm running 254.

Hmm. I built a topic specifically to test this and had the same problem.

Since I usually search for tags I guess I've never noticed.

Just another issue that will bug some people and never get fixed.
