PM5 had a great search functionality, that I totally miss in PM6
This has made working with PM so much less useful .
I understand that is was not perfect with spotlight, but give us the option.
Let me tell you how I was using it.
I had folder open in PM5 with many files. I would retouch them and ad an R at the end: SampleR.JPG and SampleR.PSD and Sample2R.JPG
at the end I would filter out with a search: R.JPG
all the finished retouched images appear, upload and invoice.
with you correct search it is impossible!
Good news. We know that feature was useful for a lot of people, and we're working on bringing that functionality back. If you'd like to preview it a little sooner, check out our Photo Mechanic Plus beta release here: http://forums.camerabits.com/index.php?board=15.0
I just wanted to update you that search will be back in the next update and there's more good news: https://home.camerabits.com/2020/03/27/spotlight-search-returns-to-photo-mechanic-and-a-sale/
Good news. Spotlight search is now back for Mac users. Here it is: http://forums.camerabits.com/index.php?topic=13227.0
I am using the 90 days trial version (v6 build 4538) and my Windows 10 notebook.
It seems there is still no possibility to search for filenames.
I remember seeing it in some old version years ago. My previous experience is what made me look for Photo Mechanic again nowadays.
Is there a plan to bring back the search functionality soon, for the Windows version as well?
The search feature relies on the macOS-specific Spotlight Search, so we can't create that for Windows. However, Photo Mechanic Plus has a lot more search options.
