Searching library - descriptions seem limited

Recommended Posts

Warning - I am a relatively new user.  I am surprised that I have to scroll through all the items to find something specific.  For instance, I can type in table and get a long picture list of tables,  but I can't type in small round table.   Am I missing something?  Are there not multiple descriptions on each item to make the searching quick and easy?

In ChiefArchitect software Library Item does not have a description:


It has

a) name

b ) keywords

c) styles.


I may be wrong on that one, but I though that prior to future release X9, item folder  name is not even part of the search.

Library is a little rigid with Chief and slow sometimes. Its the weakest thing about a "great product" . I just decided to get over the little issues. I love the program to much to complain I am afraid they will take it away from me and then my five year old daughters toy allowance  gets slim. I have little blue dots of corrupted files I need to talk to tech about, The library will not allow me to delete them. I had data files from several past updates and I think things got a little messed up. I keep anything from 3d warehouse I use in a separate folder on my PC and fetch them when I need them.

      I am having an issue with the Library Browser where even when the top left Icon and in the view tab icon is show with a check mark to indicate being open but there is no sign of the Library Browser actually popping up on my screen or right sidebar, next to the Project Browser, as I have used it before. Has anyone else had this issue? Am I missing a setting that would hide the Library Browser or does this sound like a glitch/issue?

      I was wondering if anyone has ever built a script that loads a folder full of additional libraries that were downloaded to your machine instead of spending time clicking on each library.  I am a teacher and have 27 machines and its very hard to keep all of the libraries on all of the machines for the students to browse, and I dont want to have them click and run every single one.  I am looking for a one stop file that does this for them.
      Any help would be great.
