Searching custom attributes

When a text-based attribute is created, it becomes available for searching using Quick Search or Local Search.

Quick Search: Precede the name of the attribute with "attrib_" and then add a colon followed by the query term, e.g. "attrib_color:blue".

You must use whole words when searching for elements containing particular values for local attributes.

For searching purposes, words are the terms on either side of a space, hyphen or underscore in a name. The names of elements and folders are split into words when indexing.

In the Local Search (Image search_database_16_h_p) tool, the local attributes are available to select from a drop down list, in addition to Name and Path.
