How to create a Smart Collection from a full text search

In Papers 3 it is possible to create a Smart Collection from a full text search. For example you can have a Smart Collection named 'Chocolate' that contains every article in your Papers library that contains the word chocolate.

To do this, first carry out your full text search in All Papers. Once all the documents appear that contain the desired word, select all documents and apply a Keyword to all these documents.
