Project Browser Search

Project Browser Search

I like the way that Search works in the Type Selector.  Wish that a similar contextual search/filter tool bar was always up and available for the Project Browser instead of the right-Click search (followed by next,next, next, next......)

Finding and searching tools could definitely use an improvement.  Related idea here:

Include a filter box on the project browser.

 

Would be especially useful when placing multiple views on a sheet if you could quickly filter to a single room.

I posted this idea as a comment to this idea as well (didn't see your post). I'd prefer to have a dropdown for browser organization selection though (which include a filter option) instead of only a filter option.

"Search" function to be always available at the top or bottom of the Project Browser.

This is a good lean 2 second improvment. The current search is a bit of a time thief as there is no auto close if you click out side the box.

Good idea, especially for large projects. However there is a possibility to quick search by pressing first letters/numbers of the sheet/view you are looking for. Though it won't work if a name we are looking for is in the middle of the name.

On projects big or small the Project Browser can become an unwieldy impediment to working quickly when we have to search for that view, sheet, family whose name we know but lies buried under four or five levels of branching subfolders whose names are not as quickly recalled.  A permanent Search Filter bar at the top so that with as few as 4 characters we can go right to what we want, just like with components or materials, is long overdue.

Also, a search bar for the Keynotes browser would be nice.

I would advocate for a unified search interface that behaves like the following example:

3 versions and 90 votes later and Autodesk's biggest contribution to this idea was?  Combining my thread with this one.  Great job.

Hi, I want  Project Browser can search for names, like blender.

you can search for names by right clicking in the browser and selecting search option. Then type name view/family/sheet.... you are looking for. a cell to input the name would be handy by the way.

Would be kind of cool to have this.

@ShineThrone ,

It is possible to search in the Project Browser. Right-click on Views and select Search. As @wr.marshall , it is just that there isn't a pinned search box. Is this what you are looking for, or just having the ability to search in the Project Browser?

 

Thank you!

@kimberly.fuhrman, adding pinned search that functions similarly to searching Types would be a good thing to add to this idea. Maybe merge?

Hi, @scbunker ,

Thank you for the suggestion. I think we should keep those Ideas separate as they could potentially be integrated independently of one another. Make sense?

 

Thank you for looking into it!

That blender search (which I use every day) as described in the first post works exactly like @bosborne  described in his Revit idea.

Hi @bosborne, @shine.T, 

 

We created a project browser plugin that has this exact search functionality. Please give it a try and let me know if you have any further suggestions.
