Full Text Service (FTS) - request

Really love FTS BUT would welcome FTS returns to show the number of citations of the search term per book as this would show most relevant books to view rather than current position of just showing one. Or alternatively an option to choose 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 returns per book. Is this possible?

No, sadly the FTS engine only tracks a single match per document (book format). You can open the book in the viewer and see th enumber of matches.

Thanks Kovid. I thought that if it was possible to have more than one match shown or the number of matches per book it would help deciding which books to go to to search further. I have a large library and sometimes get 30+ books returned and it's hard to choose which ones to view. Not Grumbling as a total fan of Calibre and the FTS option. Really grateful for your work over many years on Calibre.

Yeah, I can see your use case, however it's simply not supported by the underlying engine. It could theoretically be implemented by writing a custom SQLITE FTS5 extension function, but that's rather a lot of work to implement. Maybe someday when I have the time.

I would find this useful as well. (I think I might've actually requested it once.)

Many thanks for thinking about doing this. I know how busy you must be.

By the way, love Mumbai. My son was working there for a few years and we went to see him a few times. He lived in Bandra West.

An alternative approach would be to use an 'AI engine' to interrogate a calibre library. Just noticed that the IOS app Evernote is offering users the option to search with AI - whatever that means in this context.

Maybe this would be of interest, it's on my list of things to look at ==>> Open Semantic Search

For the past decade or so I've used Windows Search and X1 to content search calibre libraries. And, since its release in 2016, in conjunction with the Drop Search Results calibre plugin.
