    I am having trouble with the search activity. I have tried several common wildcard characters (% and *) and neither work. I also get poor results searching for any substring.

    try this list, the most common search criteria is a two letter abbreviation used in the “readings” column, such as Mt or Jn, etc.

    @sallymae. Thanks for posting. I took a little time to investigate what you have described. My search function is indeed limited to the filename properties. I really should make the scope much broader, which would accomplish what you expect. I will try to improve it and release a new maintenance version within the next 24-48 hours. Thanks for contacting me about this.

    @sallymae. Also, with regards to the wildcards. Those are typical of database-based searches. The search I use is based on regular expressions (regex). You can enter any text or a regular expression.
