Hein Online Search Tip: Proximity Search

Support for finding words which are a within a specific distance away. To do 
a proximity search, use the tilde symbol, "~", at the end of a phrase.  Example:

To search for a "watershed" and "planning" within 10 words of each 
other in a document use the search:"watershed planning" ~10
