Currently, PrizmDoc Viewer does not allow users to perform exact word/phrase and wildcard searches simultaneously. This appears to be by design as it is specified in the product documentation.
We believe these search methods should not be mutually exclusive. By way of example, when searching within the text "... this decision brings with it: choice and controversy, choice and control, and ...":
It should be possible to perform a search on “choice and con*” using both wildcard and exact phrase, which would result in finding both hits:
1. choice and controversy
2. choice and control
We have compared the PrizmDoc Viewer's search capabilities with other industry standard text searching software and found that these other searches provide us with expected results.
We contend that the ability to search using both wildcard and exact phrase options simultaneously is valid and should be available from PrizmDoc Viewer.
