    Hi there,

    I was wondering if anyone else had come across the problem when searching for acronyms throughout the OB website? There's a searching setting in place that requires 4 or more characters when conducting a search.

    Ironically, most acronyms for plastics are 3 letters long. eg: abs, pla, pet

    How do people overcome this when searching?

    Hello @tablefx
    Thanks for the feedback. We will look into correcting this.
    We are also looking to make the search feature better as a whole as well.
    Thank you
    Mark

    Add a * as the fourth character. This will of course lead to a few false positives (absolute, plate, Peter) but if you limit the search to the specific forum you are interested in, this will limit the number found.
