Atelier Search Tab

The Atelier tab in the Search dialog allows you to perform basic text searches in a specified namespace on any configured server connection, and returns results in the Search view.

You can open the Search dialog by selecting Search > Search from the main menu bar or clicking the search button (Search) in the main toolbar. A drop-down on the search button lets you direct the dialog to open with the Atelier tab selected, as shown in the following screen shot.


The following fields and controls make up the search tab.
