Help to Restrict Search to Subject and Keyword

First, off I'd like to say "Thanks" for Caboodle. It helps me tremendously in my job. It's a great little product.

I currently have 288 items, and use the Search frequently to locate the exact item I need. Currently, the Search returns all items containing the phrase I enter - whether it's in the Subject, Keywords or Body. It would be great for me if there was a way to restrict it so it only looked in the Subject and Keywords (reduces the number of returns). I tried using all caps in the Keywords, and then typing my phrase in all caps, but the Search is case-insensitive.

If anyone has any suggestions for how I can restrict the Caboodle Search to only return entries whose Subject or Keywords match my search phrase, I'd appreciate it.

Thanks!

Re: Help to Restrict Search to Subject and Keyword

If I recall correctly, you can restrict it by prefixing the field name. For example, "subject: your subject" or "keywords: keyword". This would probably only work with the first words of the field, though.

In the future, I want to add more refined searching, like in the Finder.

The prefix doesn't change any results for me. Is there any way to limit results after entering a matching string? Thanks.

Not at this stage, unfortunately. Definitely something I want to improve, though.
