    Hi Sim,
    Can you allow three letters in the search tool? I wanted to search for "CBA" but it said it was too short...

    Will look into it.

    Allowing 3 letter words dramatically increases the size of the search index in the database, which is why it is typically disabled.

    I am planning on implementing an external search engine (based on ElasticSearch for the technical people here), but that's a little while off before I'm ready for that yet - but it may make it easier to manage searches for shorter words.
