Marjolijn,

Is there a possibility to search for empty fields in the SEARCH and/or FIND option.

Find can look for empty fields, that I am certain.  I don't think Search can since it is Spotlight-based and Spotlight wants terms to search for.

Photos that have an empty field

-   Set the Find panel to find "Any of the words",
-   make the find text blank/empty,
-   set In: to "All Items" set the Keyword or whatever field to be searched
-   click Find. 


I hope this will help.
