Does anyone else find the Search function on this site utterly useless, or am I not using it correctly?

No matter what term you put in, you get screeds of responses which have nothing to do with what you are searching for.

For instance, type in circular window. You'll get maybe thousands of results, but none of them will be about the topic you want, certainly not on the first pages. I can't believe that no-one has ever, ever posted about circular windows, but apparently not!

I completely agree that the forum search is utterly useless. Instead use Google to search the forums by means of a site: search operator.

To search for circular window on the forums, I would Google the following:

circular AND window site:techboard.vectorworks.net

Using the Forum's 'Advanced' Search is better - still not very good - but you have to change the date range from its useless default of 'Newer than 1 Week(s)'.

I can't wait for the Search to be replaced!

The search in the 2015 Help is much improved, completely different from the search in the Help apps from 2014 and earlier and the technical writers are able to correct issues on the fly if you're using the online help and not cached local help.
