    Into the Use exact phrase entry field.

    which period do you suggest for an archive that spans such a long time?

    County boundaries have always been mobile

    Lots of the newspaper archives are BOUND in volumes, and cannot be laid flat

    If you search for your word IN THE EDIT BOX, you will go to that part of the edit text. Even better, if you then click, it will zoom/scroll the image.

    The same applies to counties - much of my interest is on the Norfolk/Suffolk border. I would VERY MUCH like to search those two counties

    You can already limit to a single newspaper.

    Bu the Times has its own archive, and is not on the BNA

    And the same for counties and publications.

    ironically, the FMP interface, which is generally worse, handles this fine!

    It's tricky, since with fallible OCR, you're never certain if a match is really a match without reviewing it.

    Agreed - even though the OCR is sometimes poor, I would love to be able to preview the OCR version (because it's fast) before going to full page, which is slow for ME, and puts a bigger load on YOUR servers.

    I use a big monitor (actually a virtual VERY big monitor) and take a screen shot

    Sadly there would then be a motivation to just cut n paste trash to earn rewards

    I think Sue's "Hot Match" idea would (in practice) cover this, and is more general.
