    Excellent tool for indexing documents (including text within pdf, chm files). The portable version is an added benefit for indexing documents on portable devices.

    Indexes folders for very fast future text content searches. Previews text and full html with search term highlighting. If you have a number of documents / letters etc to look through, this is the best cross-platform option for retrieving them.

    DocFetcher is truly a great product to work with. Research is a major part of what I do and I use this product a good deal of my time - often for the whole day, daily, for weeks on end. I have never had an operational problem. Except, to be honest, once when I tried to launch the program and I was told that the program was already running. I simply launched the program again anyway and the error message did not appear again. Anyway, if you experience an issue, why not take the time to visit the Forum - instead of bad-mouthing the product out of some frustration (as galaxy11 and shaznay have done). And if something doesn't work as wished for (as with ukelele), why not pursue that also through the forum or via a bug report or a feature request? I have found the support to be exemplary. Responses to my feature requests have been entirely satisfactory - both in speed and content of response, as well as willingness. So far, I have not had to submit a bug report, per se. Not to forget that this is a freeware product - written, maintained, and continually enhanced by an obviously dedicated person entirely voluntarily.
