do not remember to which collection the record belongs, or you know the records
you are looking for belong to more than one collections, you should use the
"Global Search" command in the main context menu or the corresponding
toolbar icon. You will then be prompted to enter a search string and the search
results will be displayed in the "All collections" table. Records will
be selected which match the search string either in the category or item title
or item content fields.

collection, you should open the table view of that collection using the
appropriate command in the main window context menu or the corresponding toolbar
icon. You should then press the "F3" key to open the dialog box to
enter the search string (for some collections such as "contacts" etc.
the search dialog box is opened automatically when the table window is opened).
The result will be displayed in the same table window.

records. You can enter your search string directly into the filter or filters
associated with the field or fields you want to use for matching. If you use
more than one filter, you can chose whether to use and "AND" or
"OR" logical operator for the matching rule.
functions are also available in the calendar window and random map window.
