Benefits and Description
Starting in PTC Windchill 10.2 M010, the Advanced Search page layout includes the following improvements:
Criteria are arranged into collapsible category groups.
Under Type, you can select between All Types or My Favorite Types.
Under Context, you can select context options (such as All Contexts) or My Favorite Contexts.
The Examples for Query Mode Syntax link appears when the Search Mode preference is set to Advanced.
The addition of the My Favorite Types and My Favorite Contexts checkbox options also makes it easier to customize each search. For example:
Select the checkbox next to My Favorite Types to select all object types listed below it.
Clear the checkboxes next to individual object types to exclude those types from a search.
Note: This does not remove the object type from the favorites list.
Select the checkbox again to include the object type in another search.
Selections are maintained between search sessions. To remove a favorite type or context, hover over the name to see a remove icon.
