About Searching the Help or the Help Center
The Search is always accessible from wherever you are in the Help. Searches are performed using a proprietary search tool. On the Search page, the results appear dynamically as you type. Exact matches are highlighted.
When you are accessing the Help Center from PTC.com, you can search the Help topics as well as books.
When you are accessing Help that is installed locally, you can search the Help topics only.
The following search rules apply when you search the Help:
Boolean—All search words and phrases have an implicit AND.
Wildcard Search—All search words have an implicit wildcard. For example, if you type extr, your search results will include any string that starts with extr, such as extrude and extra.
Word Search—For example, a search for round feature finds all Help topics containing both round and feature. The terms do not have to be next to each other.
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.
