Searching Across Topics in Content Fusion

Post by jmorales » Fri Feb 26, 2021 11:01 pm

It appears that the Search feature in Content Fusion only searches within the currently open topic. When someone has sent me a large number of topics to review, it would be very useful if I could do a search through all the topics. Thanks.

Hello,

I've added your vote for this feature request.
As a workaround you could use the "View topic content" button [1] which is available for ditamap files. After the topic content from referenced topics is expanded you can use the find action to search through all topics.

Best,
Gabriel

Thanks Gabriel, That's a very helpful workaround! It's not perfect, because if I'm searching and making changes as well, I have to keep going back and forth between the combined view and the edit view for individual topics. But at least your workaround makes it possible to do a combined search, and that's a big help.
