Search feature
« on: February 19, 2013, 01:55:36 PM »
Hi, I attempted to search for some old city photos and came up with zero results.  I went to edit, find, selected "any of the words," put in the city name, checked filenames and IPTC data but came up with no results.  Any ideas what I might be doing wrong?  Thanks.

Did you have it find in all photos or only selected ones?  Do the images in your contact sheet actually have the word(s) you're looking for?

The Find panel doesn't search your entire hard drive.  It searches only the files in the current contact sheet.

Just selected photos.  I checked the contact sheet and see that one of the files has the name in it.  I erred somewhere.
