Tip #075: Display a Custom Search (Part 1)
This insignificant little icon opens a wealth of ways to find exactly the clip you need.
The magnifying glass in the top right corner of the Browser highlights the Search box. This allows us to find clips based upon text in their file name, or, if you’ve entered anything, the Notes field. (This Search box does not search Event names.)
NOTE: I’ve found that trying to enter Notes in the Browser often doesn’t work. Instead, use the Info Inspector to enter Notes. This works more reliably and can be searched just like file names.
However, there is a much more powerful search option just to the right of the Search box. Its the icon indicated by the red arrow in this screen shot.
It’s called the Search Filter window and over the next three tips, I’ll explain how it works.
