Using Filters

Use filters to specify search criteria. When you activate a filter, MultiTerm searches through entries that match the filter criteria rather than searching the entire termbase. For example, you can use a filter to search through all entries that were created after a certain date, or by a certain user.

In each termbase, there is one default filter, Source Contains Synonyms, which allows you to filter the termbase for entries that contain more than one term in the current source language. Your MultiTerm administrator may also supply custom-defined filters for use with a particular termbase. Contact your MultiTerm administrator for more information about the filters that are available to you.

 

Activating a Filter

  1. Go to the Terms view.

  2. Click the Click to activate filter: <filter name> icon filtericon.jpg on the Search and Display toolbar. If you carry out a normal, fuzzy, full text or wildcard search, the filter is automatically applied; search results are taken from entries that have been evaluated according to the filter criteria.

NOTE

 

  • Filters are only applied to the first termbase when searching; subsequent termbases are not filtered.

  • When the filter is active, the icon represents a button that has been pressed in.

 

Deactivating a Filter

  1. Go to the Terms view.

  2. Click the Click to deactivate filter: <filter name> icon filtericon.jpg on the Search and Display toolbar. The filter is no longer applied when you search or browse through your termbase.
