I'm not sure why essays at the front would preclude the decision to still have an Entry field. It's not just a dictionary, yes, but it is a dictionary (and titled as such). If I want to quickly go to entries that begin with "Temple," it takes some 40-50 marks using the "Title" field to get there. I understand I can just "look up" a word using the left sidebar navigation, but the behavior and usability of the tool (specifically, not having "Entry") just doesn't strike me as consistent with other such tools in Accordance.
I do appreciate the "Title" field, and this is not to criticize the developers' decision, but it is to say: Is it too late/complicated/expensive now for an update to go back and add an Entry search field? I'd be surprised if others didn't find that helpful, too, especially given how most people would use a resource like this (i.e., looking up by entry).
