The "Search" tab
Click on the search
tab ( 1
) of the navigator. The normal project tree is replaced by the search criteria form ( 2
) and the result list ( 3
When opening the search tab for the first time after opening the project, the result list is empty. Search results are temporary
and will not be saved along with the rest of the project.
Specify your search criteria. The screenshot above shows:
Search the entire project and find objects where the field name contains the text "gal". Ignore casing.
Now press the Search
button and all found elements matching your search criteria will be displayed in the result list.
Selecting an object in the result list will show the details in exactly the same way as when selecting this object in the normal project tree.
As an option you may want to show the claiming state of the found objects' partition ( 1
), display the object color ( 2
) or group objects based on their location in the overall project tree, the object path ( 3
). For long paths only the first and last part of the hierarchy will be displayed.
Setting the search critera
Specifying a search is very easy. First, specify if you want to search in the name
field, the description
field or in any text field of articy objects.
Next, enter the search text. All objects that contain this text somewhere in the chosen field, even if there is more text, are added to the result list. Also decide if you want the search to consider character casing by checking or unchecking match case
Third, decide if you want to search in your entire articy:
draft project or if you want to restrict the search to a certain part of the project. The search below would only find objects in the entity folder "Minor NPCs" and its sub-folders.
