Search menu


The Search submenu on the main menu is available at the middle and professional levels. It can be used in searching your collection for texts, pictures, fonts, etc. Many of those searches are done with the help of registries. Those menu items that provide access to a registry, display the number of members in the registry in parentheses (for example, the Search menu in the picture (click to enlarge) shows that the exemplary collection stores 870,202 texts with a lexicon of 633,724 distinct words - note that the number is so high because proper names, different numbers, etc., are all stored in the lexicon as separate words):
