Search not working like iOS or Android

Postby kschaerr » Mon Nov 16, 2015 8:50 pm

I'm running version 2.15.10.290 on Windows 10.010586 (Nov. Service Pack). The Search feature isn't working as expected / hoped. For example, if I'm trying to find Pres. Erying's April 2012 Conference talk "Mountains to Climb", and I search for

eyring mountain

I don't get any hits, even though I'm looking at that talk. If I do the same on iOS, I get 14 hits in General Conference alone. If I just search for eyring, I do get hits, but it's not helpful when you can't seem to use multiple keywords.

Along these same lines, when you click on a search result, you are taken to the correct page, but not to the reference you are looking for. The text is highlighted, but in a talk or long passage of scripture, it can take a bit to find what you're looking for. Again, this feature is much better on iOS / Android.

Gospel Library on Windows only supports exact phrase search. Keyword search will not be introduced until the 3.x release on Windows 10.
