Search in Adobe plugin

from Zoom 7.0 onwards

Searching within the Evolphin Zoom plugin has changed to be more adaptive to how we work with Zoom inside the Adobe apps.

Zoom 7.0 to 7.2

Click on the Browse tab and then the Search tab to search within all assets available to the logged-in user in the Zoom repository.

Start searching by either typing a search text or by choosing to view filtered assets.

When you start typing in a search text, all assets that start with this text are listed below the search box.

Press Enter to view all assets that match the search text.

Choose from the Filters drop-down to view all assets filtered on the chosen criteria.

The search filters are configured using zoom.properties. 

 

You can narrow down within your results by further filtering text-based search results or by searching within filtered results.

The number of assets returned after searching and filtering are shown in the lower right corner of the plugin window. The number of assets selected is shown in the lower-left corner of the window.

After searching for assets, select one or more assets from the results and click  to link those assets with your project/document. Click to check-out the selected asset(s).

Click  to reload displayed assets so that any new changes are reflected.

Configuring search filters

The filters listed while searching in the Adobe plugin can be configured for a Zoom Client using its zoom.properties or configured at the Zoom Server to be propagated to Zoom Clients.

  1. On the Zoom Client machine, open zoom.properties file from $Home/.zm
    For Example: C:\Users\joe\.zm\zoom.properties
  2. Metadata based drop-down filters can be updated by adding LIST_DEF_PROPS followed by the metadata eg. IPTC_City

  3. Multiple drop-down filters can also be added in the structured search view by adding “,” separated values in LIST_DEF_PROPS.
    For example : LIST_DEF_PROPS = IPTC_City,FIPR_Color Mode

  4. You can also filter your search results based on File-type filters already set up from the Asset Browser. For example, you may only want to see Images, or Videos, or Layouts, etc., each of these File-type filters can be configured by adding FILE_TYPE_FILTER inside LIST_DEF_PROPS in zoom.properties. There are other preconfigured faceted search filters available for use as filters here with LIST_DEF_PROPS. Use one or more search filters to make your custom search filters list for your Evolphin Zoom plugin.
  5. Save the file.
  6. Click Reload Properties in the Evolphin Zoom plugin panel’s flyover menu to reflect the changes made in zoom.properties.
