    Are you looking to search in the program, or in the files on your computer? If on your computer, you could use the search function and search for files with only the extension you are looking for. If you could elaborate on what you need help with im sure people would be able to give you a better answer

    Yes, yes, yes.....

    Click FILE>Search
    Under Search Criteria section, click radio button for "Design Information"
    Under Where section, choose "Description" from the drop down menu
    Click "Search" button....

    That's it, you can also add additional search criteria by clicking on the "Add Additional Criteria" button and add a date range, length or width size, etc.

    PM me if you need more info

    The solution is not in changing programs, it is in asking a question and having someone that knows the software answer. I am an Artios Expert, ask away!

    Hi Spy,

    In order to have files capable of being searched, you HAVE to save these files within the resource folder. Usually, this will be a folder that is withing the Program Directory, i.e. C:/Artios/Designs... that is the usual default. Replace the "C:/" with whatever your install drive is. You can make as many SUB folders in that resource (Artios/Designs), but in order for the file information to be indexed and searchable, they MUST be in the resource folder. Also, PLEASE NEVER manually move files or folders outside of Artios, as all of the pointers saved within the database will be void. If you need to move or copy a file, do not use Windows Explorer to move it, use the Save As feature within Artios or you are asking for headaches. If you have saved anything outside of the default resource, please let me now and depending on your comfort level in Artios I will help you find a solution. If there aren't too many files, you can open and save them into the Artios/Designs folder and they will be indexed into the database. REMEMBER, you can make as many sub folders as you want....

    I hope this helps, if you have any questions, feel free to ask...
