Hi all - just a quick query. I'm trying to compile a list of songs with exact words in the title - so, for example 'ace'. The search function by default will include words that ace is a component of - face, etc. I've tried using quote marks as I would in an SE but no luck. Is there any way I can do this?

I may be missing something obvious.

Thanks!

That's not exact word search but whole word only search.
If it's OK to omit first/last word cases, then simply add spaces before and after the term inside a double quote, e.g. " ace "
To be precise, use custom search with "match RegEx/i" (i means case-insensitive search) by adding word boundaries (\b) before and after the search term, e.g. \bace\b

The latter is exactly what I needed! Thanks for the help!
