Style Search not working
« on: March 20, 2020, 06:47:17 AM »
Hi

I tested Style Search and it did not behave as expected.

I used the File > Rename command to entered unique letters "varx" at the end of Style names to indicate styles that I improved for a number of styles.
I entered "varx" in the Style Search box and it returned nothing.

Does anyone know what I could be doing wrong?

It probably dose not recognise the varx part of the title.
  If I were you I would create a folder called Varx and save your styles in this. Will then be easier to find.

The search index is updated regularily. After renaming you should wait some minutes for this process to happen.

I just tried it and it returned half of the "vx" (new suffix) files. Before it returned none. Maybe it's because I have too many Styles on my flash drive. I downloaded a ton from this website,

That's a different story. If your search criteria finds more than 100 entries you will see only those first 100 styles. But in that case, you should get a message informing you that serach limit is exceeded. Like it or not, but honestly, what is the benefit of getting say 1000 entries or more as a result of a search. Typically you may want to narrow your search, don't you?

I often get this message, have many styles! But the search function is very handy!!

Then you just have to wait until the index is updated. Let your keyboard rest, with the power on, and the USB inserted, for about 15 minutes.

Another idea is to put your "vx" styles in a separate folder. Then they’ll be easy to find.
