The 'Find Anything' Feature
The Find Anything feature allows you to search for any selectable object in any open project. Enhancements over Space Planning’s normal Find Product feature include:
- Finding anything selectable—not just Positions. Drawings, fixtures and even segments and planograms can be found.
- Searches can be done within an existing selection to narrow your scope, such as finding Positions within a selected Segment.
- Selections can be added on to. Find all positions of Brand A, then easily add Brand B to the selection.
The second step is to select a scope for your search to cover. Selection will only search currently selected objects. Active Planogram will search the entire currently active Planogram. Active Project will search the entire currently active Project. All open Projects will search through all your currently open Project files.
The third step is to specify your search criteria. This is done by providing a search field or formula on the left, a method of comparison in the middle, and the value to search for on the right. Any field can be searched as long as it has a relationship with the object type you’re searching for (e.g. Product, Fixture and Performance fields can be used and combined when searching for Positions.) Complex formulas are supported—click F to open the formula builder to build one. The dropdown list on the right will automatically populate with all potential values based on the current search field or formula. Match case will toggle on and off strict matching of uppercase and lowercase letters.
Finally, the options on the bottom control how the found items will be selected. Checking Add to current selection will always add the results of what was found to what you already have selected. Find Next will find and select the next occurring object that matches. Find All will find and select all objects that match.
