Finding Objects


You can search for objects using the Find command. You can display the found objects in a content window, where you can select them and perform tasks on them. If you frequently perform a particular search, you can save the search criteria as a filter that you can run at any time.

You can also search for items by searching for specific words contained in an item revision.

In addition to this you can create reports. Reports enable you to specify selection criteria that can include boolean operators.

To find an object:

  1. Select Edit | Find, and select the type of object. For example, to search for an item, select Edit | Find | Item.

  2. In the Find dialog box, select criteria to limit the number of objects found. For more information about the criteria on each tab, click the Help button in the dialog box.

  3. TIP  You can quickly search for all objects of a particular type by clicking the Find Now tab without setting any criteria.

  4. To display the list of objects that meet your search criteria, click the Find Now tab.

  5. On the Find Now tab, select one or more objects.

  6. To display the selected objects in a content window, click Open.

  7. To close the Find dialog box, click the Close button.
