Searching in PTC document

Searching in PTC document

I wanted to do a simple search in one of our documents, exactly searching for a word like 'permanent'.

Using many 'search fields' (Show items containing, CTRL+F, etc) I could find the object that contain the given keyword,

but none of them highlights where the keyword occurs, which is a bit akward since a simple notepad++ can do that (highlighting all the occurences),

and since we have pages of long texts in some of our objects (with tables inside) now I have to export our documents to a docx format and do the search there.

Am I missusing the tool offered menus or is it really not managable to pinpoint me to the found keyword?

Re: Searching in PTC document

Hello Tamás Gulyás‌,

Ctrl+F will get you to the correct item, but as you pointed out it will not highlight the actual text, or place the cursor next to the relevant text.  I suggest posting a product idea/enhancement request for this.

From here, click on the Actions menu, and select Create a product idea.

I hope that helps.
