Users of Studio for InDesign and InCopy can create a Custom Search with which they can store a set of search criteria for performing repetitive searches.
It works by defining the search criteria once, saving them as a Custom Search and then accessing that Custom Search whenever it is needed. Defining the search criteria is done by choosing them from a list of options.
Figure: Criteria that can be added to a Custom Search are available in the Add Criteria list of the Custom Search dialog box.
By default, only a few criteria options are listed such as name, type, and comment.
Changing the list
Step 1. In Studio Server, access the Query Setup page by choosing Query Setup in the Maintenance menu on the left side of the screen or on the Home page.
Step 2. From the Action list, choose Query Parameters.
Step 3. Click Add.
When adding a first setup for the chosen query, a message appears stating that in the setup that you are about to create, mandatory properties such as Name, ID or Type will be automatically added. You will also be asked if regularly properties such as 'RouteTo' and 'Comment' also need to be added.
Step 4. (Optional) Click Yes or No.
Note: Properties that are added by clicking Yes or that are left out by clicking No can at any time be removed or added in the next steps.
A list of properties appears: all mandatory properties and optionally all regularly used properties.
The option at the top of the list can be used for adding additional properties.
Note: Options for managing the already added properties will become available as soon as a change is made on the page: either by adding a new property or by navigating to a different setup and then returning to this setup.
Step 5. Add additional properties by doing the following:
- In the Order box, enter a number that specifies the order in which the property should appear in the list.
Note: The higher the number, the lower the property will appear in the list.
- Choose a property from the list.
Note: Custom properties are listed first and are preceded by an asterisk character (*).
- Click Update.
Restoring the list
To restore the list to the default values, remove all properties that were added to the list of Query Parameters.
