Help on the Search ePub

Quick question......I am doing a search and wanted to know if there was a way to pair down the results. For instance, I am looking for tablet, but the search also returns tabletop as tablet is found in that word.

Thank you

Huh. I did not know that was a feature of Quality Check. Now I'm going to tell you how it works.

Looking in the code, it uses a regular expression search.

So to make only tablet, use: \btablet\b
\b means 'word boundary'.

To match tablet and tablets, use: \btablets?\b
s? means '0 or 1 s characters.

Regular expression reference.
