    The search of notes (f4) does not find symbols. I wonder if the # could be used as a tag mechanism. I have be using cat: as a tag but the # might be more useful and consistent. Would that conflict with anything is SwordSearcher?

    It wouldn't conflict with anything. Non-word-characters (stuff that's not letters or numbers or hyphens etc) are ignored by the search engine.

    Could the # be added in to the acceptable characters for searching in the future?

    I will add it to the list and consider it. There are lots of possible side-effects for changing the way the search engine works like that, it is unfortunately not a simple change. :)

    Thanks. I can continue with a text tag like cat: No cats in the Bible :)
