Question re Advanced Search

    No, all we can do is move it out of the way. Since I normally leave both right and left side columns visible I have space on either side of the screen to move it into.

    Another thing I do when I want to work with the results of a search and get rid of the Advanced Search panel is to do a Select All on the search results then I drag them to a regular Album I keep for just this purpose. I have it named '~' so it sorts to the top of the list and is easy to find. I move everything there then close the AS panel and as I finish working on a particular image I will remove it from the Album.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I tried moving to side but I have both left and right open as of my current workflow.

    I like your idea to create an album with ~ in name. I'll try that. I did create a Smart Album today but don't know yet how they work compared to a regular album.

    Personally, I just pull it down to the bottom of the screen with just it's header showing. The only thing it covers down there is Quick search which you won't be using anyway if Advanced search is open.

    I do use the Search bar at the bottom of the screen in conjunction with the Advanced Search panel. It's the only way to combine both AND and OR conditions in one search. You set up the Advanced Search with the "Any of the following rules" setting which is the OR conditions. Anything you put into the Search bar at the bottom becomes an AND condition to go with the AS panel's OR conditions.

    And there's those of who don't see the obvious. I primarily use to quickly see RAWs. If I have only one format raw (ARW) then the filter option works great. However if multiple RAW file formats it appears Advance Search is better.

    I'll probably continue with Advanced search as offers some other filtering options.

    One question though, if anyone knows. Why have AS show up in separate window rather than as in previous versions ON1? Not having a option to minimize seem like an oversight to me too.

    I use keywords extensively.  I formerly was able to click on the keyword to grab all the images that were tagged.   Now the Advance Search option pops up and there seems to be no way to keep the search results on screen unless one creates a smart album.  If I tap on one of the images and close the search box, the images revert to the previous group of images.    I don't want to clutter with a bunch of smart albums that are the same as clicking the key word.  

    What am I missing? what process would keep the search results active after closing the AS panel?

    You are not missing anything; this is how the program works now. I just drag the Advanced Search panel somewhere that it doesn't obstruct my view of the search results or do as you've described and move everything into an Album. I keep one named ~ (so it sorts to the top of the list for easy access) for temporary uses like this.

    Brian:  thanks for the quick response. 

     I think ON1 needs to reactivate the quicker search option.  While the AS option is usable, it is far more than is needed most of the time.

    William, the quick search is at the bottom of the Browser. It will search whatever the current view is, so to search everything select the top folder and enable show subfolders. Then type whatever you want into the search box.

    I am using a large monitor (38") so I usually resort to running On1 in a window, leaving just enough room for AS. Still, I would rather have a (radio) button as an option to choose between AS and the preferred convential mode.
