Greetings!

I was trying to search a lexicon for something and I saw a list of check boxes with the title "Attribute." What are those supposed to do?

They limit searches in the given lexicon to either headings in "bold" typeface or words in "italics" typeface or it "ignores" typefaces altogether. I always leave "ignore" checked. But some user probably asked to be able to search for headings or definitions only, so the other attributes were added in order to limit searches and make them faster.

Ahhh. That's what I thought it was supposed to do, but it didn't seem to be working. I realized that I had "Ignore" and "bold" checked at the same time. Silly me. Thanks!
