Multi-file searches

If you have a large number of files in a browser, you can use the browser’s search features to narrow down the list and easily find the particular file you’re looking for. Type something into the search field at the bottom of the window, and PlistEdit Pro will search the list of files for ones matching what you’ve typed. You can search in one of two ways, either by the file’s name, or by its content, chosen by clicking one of the radio buttons just below the search field.

When searching by content, the search will open up all the property list files in the list and look for the given text within the content of the property list. Clicking the “Options…” button will display several ways to customize how it performs the search:

Clicking the “Save As Default” button will save the current search options as the default ones to be used whenever a new browser is created.
