Introducing ClipMate 7 > Basic Operation > Searching > Wildcards

Use the * symbol to search on partial matches - but only at the end of a word.

Ex: comp* 

would return complete, computer, compliment.

Separate individual keywords with commas.  Enclose literal strings in double quotes.


Or, you can use the "like operator" symbol:  %

This can be used at the beginning or end of the search string, such as %ow% would return Powerpoint, lawmower, cow, own, etc..

You will usually use the % at each end of the string.  Or, within the string.

Such as %y%mate% would find "Try ClipMate", as well as "my roommate snores".


Both options are case insensitive (not sensitive to case).
