mag+ Text Search - Implementation at Issue Level

As of version 7.4 of the mag+ tools, you can now instantly search the desired text within issues. Earlier, the app users were only able to perform search in the library page. Now, with the introduction of additional search operations the search feature can be enabled at issue level while designing your apps. This will help in upgrading apps with better search functionality.

NOTE: In iOS, the search feature implementation is supported by iOS 11 and above. In Android, the search feature implementation is supported by Android 4.2 and above.

 Present search functionality doesn’t support searching less than three letters. So, one can search a word with three or more letters only.

Two new additional search features are as follows:

PDF Text Search at Issue Level

This feature if enabled, allows user to instantly search a desired text within a PDF-based MIB.

  • When reading an issue, just click on the search icon appearing on the top navigation bar as shown in the screenshot below.
  • Clicking on the search icon displays the device keyboard as shown in the screenshot below. Here, type the desired word you want to search and press the search button.
  • On pressing the search button, you’ll immediately get the results displaying the pages with the searched text highlighted.

Implementation of PDF Text Search at Issue Level

This new feature “PDF Text Search at Issue Level” can be implemented in two simple ways –

  • While exporting the PDF based MIB from the mag+’s production tool.

In this method, after PDF import is done from the mag+ Designd plugin, export the created verticals to the mag+ production tool.

Here, you can quickly enable search operation by selecting the checkbox titled “Enable Search” under Feature Options and finally clicking on Create MIB as shown in the screenshot below. The created MIB will have the search feature enabled and allows user to search any text within the PDF. Read more about PDF Import
