Hi Emmi,I suppose you are talking about Analyst's notebook.When you press ctrl+F you will get a window with setting. On the right-hand side, under "Action" you can choose between "select all: (Default) and "Select First".
When you choose "Select First" you can step through the selection with the F3-button.Does that answer your problem?
I am afraid that I still don't understand what you want to do.
Yes that would make sense. Didn't get that from Emmi posts. I can immagin somone worte a plugin for that. I would be interrested my self.
Hi Anthony, Emmi, I'm not sure if this is still an active issue, but I'm new to the forums and was scrolling through some posts. Would the complex search -> regular expression function not solve this issue, using a pipe character to separate the items?It isn't the neatest solution, but would allow you to search for multiple items at once. Though not sure if there is a limit to the search string length, I did a quick test in ANB and was able to find 466 entities without any issues (search string was 15394 characters long). To quickly compile the list from new line separated values to pipe separated I used a find & replace in a text editor (e.g. Notepad++/Sublime).I hope this helps.
Hello KarstThanks for that. I've been using a form of ANB or its predecessors for over 20 years now and I never knew that trick. It's essentially the In List operator from iBase but within the ANB Find Text - exactly what I suggested Emmi needs. No need for the software to be updated then.
I just did my own experiment - nowhere near as large as yours - and it worked fine. I'll just mention for anybody reviewing this in the future that for the text editor part of the process I used Find and Replace within Word (accessed via Ctrl + H or from the Home tab). I pasted as plain text a list from Excel and then I replaced the paragraph marks = ^p with the pipe character
Good point KarstI know about not keeping the final '|' from iBase In List searching - and I make it very clear when I deliver iBase training to remove it (it's normally critical when searching a large iBase build).
I did remove the last pipe before running the search in ANB, but didn't make that clear to others reading this thread - so thanks for highlighting it. It is very important to do this.That tip about TEXTJOIN is clever but unfortunately not useful for my organisation just yet. We're still on Excel 2016, and whilst Excel 2016 & 2019 & O365 are purportedly all the same "version", Excel 2016 lacks both TEXTJOIN and CONCAT (the newer version of CONCATENATE). At some point in the coming year we're supposed to be moving away from Office 2016 to O365 by which time I may well have forgotten that tip. But it is great advice that hopefully someone else will make good use of.I am however jealous of your ability to incorporate pictures into a reply. I tried PNG and JPEG and I tried dragging the pic in and navigating via Windows Explorer - the pic shows up in the preview but then 'breaks' after I push 'upload'.
Hii can't help re SDK however I am curious if there is another option - what particular feature of find text matters to you in this example? I ask because if I am looking for several things at a time - eg 3 people - say Vidal Picard, Francine Smith and David Thompson I would type all 6 words into the search bar, and not use find text at all - and it is highly likely the 3 people I want will be at the top of the results.
