The File-based Libraries Search dialog provides controls to perform library searches, including filter constraints and search scopes using a specific search path.
The File-based Libraries Search dialog is accessed by clicking the button in the upper right corner of the Components panel then choosing File-based Libraries Search from the drop-down.
Use the available filters to filter your search terms.
Field - select an available field from the drop-down or enter a filed in the text box. For example, Name, Pin Count, and/or Description.
Operator - select an available operator from the drop-down. Available operators include: equals, contains, starts with, and ends with.
Value - select an available value from the drop-down or enter a value into the text field. For example, COAX-M or Connector 14.
Add Row - add another constraint row. By default, there are three filter constraints; you can add up to seven additional rows for a total of 10 rows.
Remove Row - remove the last added filter constraint row. You can remove rows that are unused.
File Mask - enter the file mask string or choose one of the existing file masks from the drop-down list. The search is filtered that match the string. You can use the * (any character) wildcard in the string. For example, type * to search all the files and type M to search all files that start with the letter M.
