Searching Patch View

You can easily search for specific patches contained in the top pane. All searches are performed using the Search tool.

To initiate a search you simply click in the Search box and then type the text you want to find. Only those patches matching the search criteria are displayed; all other patches are hidden.

Tips for Using the Search Tool

  • The Search tool works only on the information currently visible in the top pane.
  • If a Smart Filter is applied, only patches matching BOTH the search criteria and the smart filter criteria are displayed.
  • All partial matches are displayed. For example, if you search for patches that contain the text acrobat, any patch with "acrobat" in its name will be considered a match (e.g. Acrobat Distiller, Acrobat Reader, etc.).
  • The use of wildcards in the Search tool is not allowed.
