I would like to know whether I could avoid Recoll searching uses of any of the words in a term and only search the exact term.

For example I'm trying to search for register indirect and it gives searches of register,indirect and register indirect as shown below.I would only like to get searches of register indirect.

Enclose the search terms in double quotes. e.g. "register indirect"

Or capitalize the terms if you want exact word matches but not necessarily consecutive and in order: [Register Indirect] will match [an indirect register] but not [register indirection]
