Configure search with Dtsearch to take me to the document area with words that do not exist in the index

Good morning everyone on the forum

I would greatly appreciate if you could help me solve a problem with dtsearch engine on Windows and I explain below.

After making an index of a book and doing a search with a long series of keywords, with the search option "any words", it selects the document with the most matches, but it does not take me to the area of ​​the book where they are found . If I use the search through "boolean search" if the search keywords are exact to the document, it takes me to the part of the book where they are found, but if in that search there are any keywords that do not exist in the index document, it gives me the message "no files were recovered".


QUESTION: How to configure Dtsearch and what parameters should be used to search a long series of keywords and take me to the area of ​​the document that contains the highest number of matching words and the closest to each other, even if there are words in the search that do not exist in the index document.

Thank you very much

DTSearch will not find words that don't exist!  Your best bet is to use the w/n command - word1 w/3 word2 and its variants.  But this does not give a complete answer to your question.
