I select a subject tag

Open context menu

Select Andersen-Forbes Clause Intermediate Constituent

Select Search Everything on the right

Get some garbage Factbook results but no results - no even the one I started with

I've just looked at the AF resource and it has no search fields - searching for anything (including standard English text) in the resource returns no results. I don't think I've seen that before!

Interesting ... that gives me a couple of ideas to pursue as this is the one AF search documented in the wiki

Syntax Search of Andersen-Forbes Phrase Marker Analysis finds <AndersenForbesPhraseMarkerAnalysis = sbj: gram>

Fascinating as the results that are shown in the BWS are clause level ...

The AFPMA is intended for a Syntax Search, as with all other Clause Visualization type resources. The Context menu should have a Look up for the AF Glossary (as with Cascadia or OpenText).  The Search is inconsistent, though. Also, you would normally see a Glossary definition on hover, but not with AF.

Hi MJ.

The syntax graph resources are not indexed at all. Syntax search works off of a completely different database (only searchable using the syntax search) that models the data to which the graph resources simply give a view.

So if your query is regarding not finding results in the graph resource, that's why. I believe the search of (basically) "everything else" is to facilitate searching other resources for the thing currently under selection.

My query was more pointed. The system built the query which I chose to run again everything. No where in the system did it find a match. What resource is needed to find a match? or, if as I suspect, there is none why build a search that does nothing? It leads the user to misunderstand how the Search function works.
