I'm trying to create a dictionary of Brazilian sign language with the LIBRAS corpus and I have focused entirely on the Search function starting with the handshapes in Sign-Symbol-Sequence order. If ALL signs don't come up by that, then there is something that is definitely missing in the search process. 
When dealing with symbols, there are 3 features of SignPuddle for searching: including Search by Symbols, Search by Groups, and Symbol Frequency.

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 searching.

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.
