What is the Knowledge Base?

The Knowledge Base is a searchable collection of support related articles, including:

  • Frequently Asked Questions (and their corresponding answers)
  • How-To Articles
  • Bug Reports (and their workarounds, if any)

The Knowledge Base is not a tab search engine. If you're searching for tabs, see the Knowledge Base article Where Can I Download Tabs (.ptb files) for Power Tab Editor?

Searching the Knowledge Base

To search the Knowledge Base, type one or more search terms in the search box, and then click Search. A list of results matching your search criteria will be displayed, ordered by relevancy.

Search Notes

  • Only results matching all of your search terms will be returned.
  • A maximum of 100 search results will be returned.
  • Searches are case insensitive. This means that searching for Power Tab will yield the same results as searching for power tab.
  • By default, common words such as the and is are automatically excluded from your searches.
  • To force a common word to be included in your search, preface the word with a plus sign (+).
  • To exclude a word from your search, preface the word with a minus sign (-).
  • Word variations will be returned in your search results. This means that a search for install will match against install, installed, installing, installation, etc.
  • A maximum of 7 search terms may be included in a given search. If you enter more than 7 search terms, they will be ignored.
  • The Knowledge Base search engine is incapable of searching for phrases.

Search Examples

Power Tab Editor - Matches all articles that contain the words power, tab and editor.

tab -power - Matches all articles that contain the word tab but not power.

+the end - Matches all articles that contain the words the and end. (without the plus sign, the would be ignored since it's a common word)

one two three four five six seven eight - Matches all articles that contain the words one, two, three, four, five, six and seven. (eight is ignored due to the 7 search term limit)
