Awesome. First question: Am I doing something wrong searching?
After downloading a Bible, I go through the following code to search:

IndexManager manager = IndexManagerFactory.getIndexManager(); 
manager.setIndexPolicy(new IndexPolicyAdapter()); 

// Code runs, downloadedBook.getIndexStatus() is DONE
String searchText = SearchType.ANY_WORDS.decorate(text);
Key results = downloadedBook.find(searchText);

// And results.getCardinality() is 0, meaning no results.

This might not be enough information, if so, let me know, but I never 
get any search results back. I tried to closely imitate And-bible, but 
can’t seem to get anything.

Anyway, if you have ideas, let me know! In the mean time, thank you for 
the warm reception!
