4. Under Rule, set a rule to search for the intent objects or build a query.
 
* You can use the Name rule to search for the intent objects, that is, search by intent name. The intent name is unique and is used to define the intent object and how Creo Parametric features reference the intent object. The intent name is not the same as the name of the datum reference feature that defines it.
5. Under Criteria, specify the criteria to search for the required intent object.
6. If required, click Options > Build Query to build a query to search for intent objects and perform the following steps under Query Builder:
a. Specify the rule and criteria for a query.
b. Click Add New, the query appears under Query Builder.
c. If required, specify the rule and criteria for another query and click Add New to build another query. You can build multiple such rules for a single search.
7. Click Find Now. The items and their corresponding references are listed under items found in the Search Tool:1 dialog box. The results are also highlighted on the Model Tree and in the graphics window.
8. If required, click to transfer items from items found to items selected.
