Is there a way to search inside of a folder full of LibreOffice documents for specific text?

Nautilus which comes with ubuntu only searches file name.

Any applications that can do this?

thanks

Hi,

I believe recoll has the ability to search within OpenOffice files (and therefore should still work on Libreoffice files):

And is available in the Ubuntu repository.
