Search Manager Window

Top  Previous  Next

The search manager window shows a list of all defined searches (see: Define Searches).  It also provides an easy method of executing or editing any of the searches.  This is particularly useful if you need to do a series of searches involving different search types.

To open the search manager, select the Open Search Manager button (highlighted above) from the main toolbar. Only one search manager can be created. If it is already open, it will focus and appear in front of any other windows. The Search manager can be docked anywhere if desired. However, since it always displays a list of already defined searches, it can be closed and opened as needed without losing any data.

New - Click the New button (highlighted above) to select a signal and create a new search.

 

autosearch-copy

Copy - When the copy button (highlighted above) is clicked, a new search is created identical to the current search. The new search is added to the Search Manager, renamed by adding a sequential number to the search name, automatically selected as the Global Search and is opened for editing. This is a very convenient feature if you want to add another search with similar criteria while retaining the original search or you need similar criteria for more than one signal.

Delete - Click the Delete button (highlighted above) to delete the selected search.
