- The KwikText search box provides instant access to resources because as you type, the matching resource is selected.
- For example, when I press the P key, Presentation.pptx is selected. If I press Enter, it will open.
- In addition, the selected resource is immediately sent to your clipboard, ready to be pasted anywhere.
- In this case, the file name C:\Projects\Project ABC\Presentation.pptx is sent to the clipboard.
Search and Next Buttons
- When you click the Search button, the first match will be selected, no matter where the cursor is.
- Each time you click the Next button, the next match will be selected, until there are no more matches.
- To restart the search, click the Search button again.
Search All Button
- The Search All button opens a Search window that lets you perform Boolean searches using symbols for AND and AND NOT.
- You can search the content of the current template by clicking the Search button or all templates by clicking the Search All button.
- The Search window opens when you click the Search All button.
- If you have content in the Search Box, KwikText will search all your templates and display the results in a table.
- Click the Search button to limit your results to the current template.
- Searches examine entire nodes. In other words, a search will find a match whether it exists in the label or the content.
- You can search for anything except spaces.
Search Results Table
- When you click on a line in the search results table, its resource will be selected in the tree view, and its content will be sent to the clipboard.
- If you double-click or press Enter, the resource will open if it is a web page, file, folder, software program, or utility.
- Click on a table header to sort the results by label, content, or template.
- Clicking anywhere in the tree view will close the search window.
- The Search Window lets you limit search results by using symbols for AND and AND NOT.
- The symbol for AND is a pair of ampersands: &&.
- The symbol for AND NOT is a pair of ampersands followed by an exclamation point: &&!.
- If you precede the first search term with an exclamation point, the search results will include all resources that do not contain the search term.
- Don't add spaces unless they're part of your search phrase.
- So, to search for every resource that contains the letters A, B, and C, you would search for A&&B&&C.
- If you wanted to exclude the letter C, you would search for A&&B&&!C.
