How does the ASTERISK when searching work?

The asterisk can be used as a root word/stem/truncation search. In other words, Vincere will return and highlight any word that begins with the root/stem of the word truncated by the asterisk.

🔥Example: admin* will return: administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.

The asterisk is a time saver because it saves you from creating long OR statements and having to think of every way a particular word can be expressed.
