Search using proximity operator

Post by dschmauss » Wed Sep 04, 2019 1:12 pm

Hello, for following problem I can't find a solution.

The search syntax for a proximity operator search is "Word1" prox / distance <n "Word2". This works fine unless one of the words is a compound word. So, for example, the search "airgap" prox / distance </ 7 "cooling" work, but the search "air gap" prox / distance </ 7 "cooling" gives an error message.

Does anybody know a solution for this?

Thanks!

Hi

You need to not have spaces around the slash

Please also remove the "/" after "<".
The following query
"air gap" prox/distance < 7 "cooling"
will then work fine.
Kind regards
