Walkthrough: Searching For Data

Searching for a particular item in your list is very easy to do in Vanilla. All you do is select the "Search" Tab:


This will bring up the Search Panel:

The Default Search Panel


All we have to do is to select the "Enter Search String" field, then type in a word/phrase, and Vanilla will go all through your list, and see if it can find any occurrences of that text in either, the Name, Description, Genre and Reference fields. In our case, we'll search of all occurrences of "cat" in the Sample List:

We Searched for "cat" in the list.


As you can see from the above Screenshot, the search for "cat", Vanilla found it in 19 separate items. You can still drag (or use the "F" key), any of the items that you are interested in into the favourites list, then you can export the favourites list as described in the previous walkthrough. You can combine the favourites from the Main and Search lists.
