Library search?


Recommended Posts

I was hunting for a sofa table to put in for space planning. Nothing there, so I opened the grouped living spaces where I had seen some. Brought in the group, unblocked and selected the table. When I opened its dbx the name was "side table" so I put that into the search box. 6 items came up but none of the ones I wanted. I then tried another group that I unblocked. The table in there was a "sofa table" in its dbx but nothing came up when I used that in the search box.

Do I have to use special filters when I have the exact name?

I don't think you are going about it in the proper way.

In keeping with the season here is what I would try. ;)


In the cauldron boil and bake;

Eye of newt and toe of frog,

Wool of bat and tongue of dog,

Adder's fork and blind-worm's sting,

Lizard's leg and owlet's wing,

For a charm of powerful trouble,

Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.

Double, double toil and trouble;

Fire burn and cauldron bubble.


Seriously if the exact name does not return a result

how are all the filter options in the world going to

make any difference. As the Library continues to

grow in size it is obvious that the search engine

needs to be revamped. JMHO

Search engine is TERRIBLE.   Often I will search for exact words that are in the description and it will not pull them up.   I have about given up.   Most of the time, I will do a very broad search and then click on "view in browser" and hope it brings me close to the right place where I can then go and find it.   Problem comes with all the bonus cats or specialty things, this does not work as well on.
