Finding images with (any) text in field
« on: September 03, 2012, 02:22:38 PM »
Is there an easy way of finding those images in the Contact Sheet having some/any text in a specified field?  In other words, where the field isn't blank.

I can do it in two steps I think: in the Find dialog, select the field and leave the Word box blank.  This finds all images with no text in that field.  Then you invert the selection.

Any way to do it in one?  Like a wildcard character in the Word box to search for any text?

Thanks,

Mike

No, there is no pattern matching in the Find or Find/Replace panels.
