Searching software

To start searching in the Software storage, click the   Find button on the Software tree toolbar. The search field will appear below the toolbar.

Matching text is instantly highlighted as you type:

It’s possible to search for exact matches or include multiple search terms. For this and other ways to refine your search, see Searching the trees.

By default, the contents of the Software tree are filtered to only display the software and categories that match the query, and the rest is hidden. You can disable this feature by clicking the Filter button to the left of the search input field. In this case, all software and categories will remain visible while the ones matching the query will be highlighted in orange.

If the queried text matches a category name, all the software in that group is displayed.
