Searching the Documentation

All documentation is available through the VSimComposer itself by clicking on the Help icon on the far left or by going to the top menu bar and selecting Help –> Help Contents.

The Search field in particular is a fast way to find terms and examples, and supports the following options:

  • Wildcard search

    Use an asterisk * to represent a sequence of characters such that the term you entered can either be the whole or a part of the results displayed. For example:

    • Searching for “process*” will display “process” as well as results like “processes”, “processing”, etc.
    • Searching for “*process” will display “process” as well as results like “postprocess”, “preprocess”, etc.
    • Searching for “*process*” will display “process” as well as results like “preprocessed”, “postprocessing”, etc.
  • Omit words You can omit words in your search by putting a minus - sign in front of the word to omit. For example, typing “cylindrical -coordinates” would omit results that contain the word “coordinates”, so your results would only include terms like “cylindrical capacitor”, etc.

All searches are case insensitive.
