I just realized when I search a macro name starting with "-" the macro does not appear in the search results. This must be a reserved character. Where can I read more about KM "Search features"? When I search "Search" in the Wiki I don't think I'm finding what I'm looking for.
My reason for adding the "-" is to force the macro near the top when viewing list by name.
Terms you want to exclude (-)
