HP Prime Help searching

HP Recommended

If I go into the help system, and select search, I can enter some text to search for.

 

I have noticed that it will stop at the first occurance.  I do not see a way to search for the next occurance.  Nor are there any "advanced" searching features (shall I mention regular expressions?) -- just a simple search.

 

I hope HP will increase the functionality of the Prime's built-in documentation as I indicate here and in other messages I have posted.

After performing a Search, "Next" will appear on the 4th menu button of the Help Tree screen.  Each press of Next will jump to the next Tree entry containing your search text. After the last occurrence is found, pressing Next just flashes the orange alert icon.

 

If you are already viewing a Help screen for an item, be sure to tap Tree (the 1st menu button) to return to the Help Tree.  If you tap OK instead of Tree (while viewing a Help screen), you won't be able to continue the Search.

 

Hope that helps!
