Search improvement REQUEST

Post by lorie_wa » Wed Nov 21, 2018 11:16 am

Please fix or refine the Search function. Previously, if you did a search for UNRATED fonts, it would bring up only those in the LIBRARY which are unrated. Now, it includes those in folders. I do not want to see those fonts when I am working with rating and categorizing new fonts in my library.

Please add an option to limit the search to the LIBRARY.

(This really impedes workflow when you add a score or more fonts from a purchased bundle. Previously, you could just Select All once the search brought up those new, unrated fonts. Now, you have to scroll down and select only the ones you just added because the search brings up thousands of other fonts from the file system.)

Thank you! Your request has been added to our to-do list.
Currently fonts from Library and My Collections appear in search results, and there is no option to choose the desired source (Library and/or My Collections).

The next release will allow to select search scope: Library, My Collections, or both.
