One little question about searching partial text in object name

Feb 23, 2012 5:50 AM

Hello Everyone,


I have searched a bit but couldn't find an answer about this.


I am a Freehand user and i am currently using navigation names for differents items. Works perfectly good.


But now i need to search part of the items name.


For example i have the objects named in the nabigation panel as:

- "ItemA-rotation" for the first group of items

- "ItemB-static" for the second group of items


as for now i can search for all the items A by typing in the search graphic panel "ItemA-rotation" but i would like to find both item A and B by typing a unique search request.

Is it possible to write something like: "*Item*" to search every items that contains the part "Item" in the full name ?


Thank you for your future answers.


PS: i am using Mac os X with Freehand MX.

    It appears it isn't possible. I set up a similar document with spaces added between the word "index" and the letters "A" or "B". My thinking was that the connected wording of your phrase "ItemA-rotation" was limiting the search. But searching for the word "index" didn't reveal all the items; it had to be typed exactly as the name was set up in the Navigation Panel. Perhaps I'm missing some unknown control characters but I have never seen what those could be.
