(Go to:Topicscape Pro User Guide - contents list)


If you have found the general area in which the document or reference that you are looking for should be, you can do a focused search limited to that area alone. Right click on the topic in question and select "Search this topic and descendants". The usual Advanced Search panel appears, but it is color-coded to remind you that the scope of the search is limited to that topic and its children (and on, down the hierarchy). The title bar is different from the usual "Advanced Search" and the search statement will name the topic where the search begins.

The function "Search this topic and descendants" looks through the whole of the specified group, (the branch starting at the specified topic) regardless of sharing.

Group file content search

As with the Group search, the file content search can be directed to look at a part of a Topicscape instead of the whole.
