Let us assume that you are searching for the publication history of a particular book, say for example, Arthur Ransome’s We Didn’t Mean to Go to Sea.

        NOTE: A given text may change its title when a) it is published in America, after publication in England (less often vica-versa). The English title is used.
        A publisher may want to update a title e.g. Joyce Sleightholme’s The Sea Wife’s Handbook(1970) transmutes into The Cruising Mate’s Handbook (1991). In which case, there will be two cross-referenced entries. Author is therefore a stronger cue than title.

        To see all texts that a particular author has written
        Press Find and when the screen appears, enter the author, Surname first, e.g. Ransome Arthur. Now press Perform Find.
        On the top line of the Bibliography, to the right of the green circle, you will see the figures of 21/7654 occur. 7654 is the total number of records in the Bibliography as of October, 2011(and will be continually growing); 21 the number of Ransome entries. (If you had just entered Ransome, you will get two entries by a person with a first name of Ransome, namely Lewis Ransome Freeman).
        You are offered three options:
          A second method of studying an author’s output is in the form of a Continuous List, which saves you pressing the outward facing arrow. In the lower Bibliography toolbar, you will see Layout Modes and to the right, View As. The first option, on the left side, is the Form View, described in 1. Above. If you press the cursor against the next option, the List View, all 21 entries are produced in a continuous roll, and you just scroll down to look at the entries you want.
          Finally, you may be interested in seeing Ransome’s total output in Table Form. Simply press the furthest right [View as: the Table format]. All 21 entries will be laid out in Table form. You will lose Notes. However, you may wish to print the page(s) off and then call up the desired page(s) by asking the programme to find them, as per method l.
          Searches about an author. Say, you want to know all entries relevant to Ransome. AUTHOR will gain you a list of all his works. Putting Ransome in the TITLE box will gain you all records of works about him, such as biographies. Putting Ransome in the NOTES section will give you a wider range of comments/mentions etc. Searching by NOTES is particularly useful when a yachtsman has inspired others, especially those working in media other than word, such as Donald Crowhurst, who has inspired novels, art installations and operas.
