Find objects

You can search for objects using the Find feature.

When viewing the findings in a content window, you can select them and perform tasks on them. If you frequently perform a particular search, save the search criteria as a filter to run it at any time.

You can also search for items using specific words contained in an item revision. For details, see Search and replace text in items.

You can create reports. Reports enable you to specify selection criteria that can include boolean operators. For details, see Create reports.
