When dealing with symbols, there are 3 features of SignPuddle for 
searching: including Search by Symbols, Search by Groups, and Symbol 

The first option "Search by Symbols", starts with a location aware 
search.  After the initial search, you can ignore the location for a 
more general search if you want.

Both "Search by Groups" and "Symbol Frequency" do not use location aware 

All three of the above search options can show all of the signs that use 
a given hand shape.  For the "Search by Symbols", you'll just need an 
extra click to ignore the location aware search.
