XF 1.4 How do I search for an exact title when batch updating threads?

I'm looking to search for a specific term, such as SOLD, in the title of my threads, but I can't seem to find the strict search modifier. I am using enhanced/elastic search.

This system doesn't use the search engine (as it has a lot of conditions that can't be represented by it). There isn't an option to do an exact match. The match is always effectively "*<whatever you type>*".

You'd need to go through the list of matching threads and then manually filter them down.
