Recent and Saved Searches

While searching timelines and other windows, every time a search is done, the criteria is saved in the Searches column on the left of the window. Any search can be easily referenced by clicking on the date-time row in Recent Searches section.

Note: If the list is not in view, click on the disclosure triangle to the left of the Recent Searches text.

When the date-time row is clicked on, the criteria will be loaded and the search can be done again. This does not load previously found data, only the criteria used in the search. This can be saved by clicking on the save button at the end of the Search mode selection row, the criteria will then be saved in the Saved Searches list. The saved search will be given a default name of Saved Search. To rename the search, double click on the name and input the new name.

Search criteria can be saved directly to be used again in the future. This is especially helpful when creating complicated searches. By clicking on the save button at the end of the Search mode selection row, the criteria will be saved in the Saved Searches list. Just as stated above, the saved search will be given a default name of Saved Search. To rename the search, double click on the name and input the new name.

A saved search is saved in the “in the search mode” context. So, when a “find and replace” search is saved, and when it is selected in the Saved Searches list, the mode will be switched to find and replace. The mode is represented by the saved or recent icon; icon is Instance mode, icon is Text mode and icon is Find and Replace mode.
