About Searching from the Help Center
The Search box is always accessible from wherever you are in the Help. Click to open the Search page. You can set the search filters to narrow or broaden your search.
The following search rules apply when searching the Help:
Boolean—All search words and phrases have an implicit AND.
Word Search—For example, a search for round feature finds all Help topics containing round and feature. The terms do not have to be next to each other.
Search for Either Word—To search for Help topics that have just one of several words, include OR between the words. Without the OR, your results would typically show only pages that match both terms.
For example, search for substitute OR move to find all Help topics that contain either move or substitute.
Phrase Search—To find an exact phrase, enclose the phrase in quotations. For example, search for “reference model” to find all Help topics containing the exact phrase reference model.
Wildcard Search—For example, if you search for extr*, your search results will include any string that starts with extr, such as extrude and extra. Searching for extr without the asterisk, returns the string extr only.
