The AND and OR Boolean operators are no longer supported in the quick search. All multi-word searches are “and” searches by default. Support for explicit AND and OR searches will be available with advanced search.
- The words 'and' and 'or' and 'not' (lower-case) are ignored as stop-words and are not considered as part of your search. Currently, 'NOT' (upper-case) can be used to exclude a word, but 'AND' and 'OR' (upper-case) are ignored.
- Minus (-) can be used as a prefix to exclude a word.
- When more than 4 words are present, the search looks for items that include at least 4 of the words. Plus (+) as a prefix makes a word mandatory.
- Quotes (" ") designate a phrase.
