Another possible idea may be to write project titles in bold while on 
headlines.  That way all you need search for is the beginning of a line 
followed by a single * followed by a blank followed by the opening mark 
for bolding and if this is only done with project titles you got yourself 
an index.On Sat, 4 Feb 2012, Marc-Oliver Ihm wrote:
