    Is there a way to do a global search (i.e. across all the forums)? I've read the FAQ and hints, but have found no answer. The search dialog requires me to choose a forum, so if I want to search the whole board, I must repeat the search (up to) 29 times. Is there a way around this? Thanks!

    That is a good trick and I will use it. Not as clean as if the board had its own global search function, but a good workaround. Thank you for pointing it out, mazak.

    Best regards,

    If you click Search > Advanced Search, the default is "Search All Open Forums" and a check mark is set at [ v ] Also search in child forums.

    Isn't that pretty much a Global search.
