    Whole Words Only In Concordance Automark?

    How can you designate to find whole words only using the Automark feature of the concordance?

    As an example, using our acronym "ATT", automark also marks
    DOCUMENT ATTACHMENT PLAN as
    DOCUMENT ATT{XE "ATT*Attitude*Chapter 5*"}ACHMENT PLAN when only the following is meant:
    FLIGHT ATT/DIST for
    FLIGHT ATT{XE "ATT*Attitude*Chapter 5*"}/DIST

    Try using ATT followed by a blank!

    Nice thought. It doesn't account for all the other punction marks (.,/- and such). Even if it did, this is just one of a number of cases.

    This document on the Microsoft site seems to indicate that you have to allow for all variations you want to capture and would also seem to indicate that it is searching for whole words only, i.e. delimited by spaces on both sides. It may not work that way but that's how it reads to me. YMMV.

    That's my point. This is finding the occurrence within a word. Can anyone confirm this is a bug, or seen it before, or have a workaround?
