Search -function
« on: October 28, 2019, 04:25:25 PM »
Hi, i have used PM5 for a couple of years and I love the program. Now when i updatet to Catalina and got your ver.6 I´m very disapointed that you have skipped the search funktion. I used it all the time when looking for pictures, by date or caption text and so on . Very powerfull tool. When will you implant it again? Using the finder in OSX is not comparible to PM5 . I´m in the testperiod right now and not in the mood to pay for a program that is not better than the latest version ....

Hi wallwaall,

You do have the option to use the Find feature, which is different than the Spotlight Search but much more reliable and complete. Here is an article about using it. https://docs.camerabits.com/support/solutions/articles/48000361385-search-for-photos-using-the-find-feature-

The Spotlight search feature will not return.
