This topic describes how to use the Axis Library Search feature to locate a specific term or phrase in the Inkdocs available to you while you are online.
Enter and delete a search term
Note: If your device is offline, Axis Library Search displays simplified suggestions that show only the titles of the Inkdocs available to you, without any highlighting. You can download an Inkdoc and search within that publication for a term or phrase.
For the web and iOS applications, you can view and access Library Search at the top of the page. In Android, click the magnifying glass icon to access the search field.
Type a search term or phrase in the Search my library field and click Enter. Axis shows the results highlighted in pink and grouped by matching Inkdoc and matching page.
Axis includes an autocomplete feature for Inkdocs published in English that offers suggestions while you type your search term. To use this feature, you must enter your search term in English. For example, if your device’s default interface language is set to Español (Castilian Spanish), you would enter blue for azul. Axis returns results and suggestions only for Inkdocs in your library that are published in English.
To delete a search term, use the X on the right side of the search field or the delete button on your device.

Axis Library sorts the results list in this order:
Results that contain an exact phrase match.
Results that contain all search terms, and the terms can be in any order.
Results that contain any of the search terms, but not all.
Axis displays search results grouped by whether the result is an Inkdoc title or a match within page content. Results display in bold text and highlighted in pink.
Each page lists a maximum of 10 search results in Axis Web Library. You can navigate through the search results using the Previous Page and Next Page buttons at the bottom of the results page.
On iOS and Android native apps, the results list is infinitely scrollable. Axis Library displays a cloud icon next to a search result if you have not yet downloaded the content.
Search results are grouped by the match type and display with a pink highlight.
Access a search result
When you click on a search result, Axis Library opens the corresponding element, such as a chapter, exhibit, figure, or video. The page scrolls to the first instance of the search term and the background of the found search term is highlighted in pink.
Return to the search results list
How you return to the search results list depends on if you are using Axis on a desktop or mobile device.
