I thought I remembered being able to this once...

Yes. Search with periods between the numbers such as "8.7.8.7.", use a small "d" if you want a double meter. You can use the main search box at the top; or, if using the side boxes, add the field for "Meter" under "Texts"

I was searching for 7.6.7.6.D. and wondering why it only returned the un-D tunes. Also, is the final "." required, optional, or unhelpful?

Omit the final period after the d.
