Post Suggestions for bookview search improvements
May I suggest allowing booksearch to include metadata options? Sometimes I just want to gather together all books by a certain author (Smith, for example), but if I type in "smith" into booksearch, and search by content, I could get hundreds of results, including when any Smith is cited in the text, or when the editor himself is Smith, or the publishing company is Smith & Sons, etc. If there were a field for "searching by author" it might be handy in different ways.

You should be able to do this in Define Module sets window-> Create custom set.

Or use the 'search for book module'. (SHIFT+F2) input text box.

Yes, that's a very good solution to what I was after. I wasn't even aware of the drop-down suggestion menu that appears before clicking RETURN. From there I can certainly select any title from the author. Thanks for the secret function. (I promise not to tell anyone, except all those who read this post. Ha)
