Search function

Hi, I would like to see implementation of search function in the menu area. Is these possible, or in plan to do in the future? Otherwise, your software is great, much better than of competition!

Hi,

Thanks for the feedback. Just to understand a little, What is it you want the user to be able to search for? The text in the publication and /or key words that you set for each vertical or specific objects?

Hi,

I understand that content is in jpg or png files (not text anymore...), but I would like to make annual report and user of that report would like to search specific terms or keywords of objects/pictures. So keywords in objects but in all verticals within publication.

Hi -

Right now, no there is no search function in the app. The text is turned to images upon export (unless it is included in embedded HTML as text). However, we do preserve the raw text in the xml of the file, so we will be able to add search down the road. It is not currently on a scheduled release, but I expect it by year end.

Hi.

I was about to ask the same question. That a search function should be included in Mag+. Something that can search a keyword, then when that keyword is clicked, it goes to a defined area or a page.

I came across with the need for search function.
Maybe for example we have lots of popup items, then we name it individually, and here maybe we will need that search function.

" It is not currently on a scheduled release, but I expect it by year end" - Any update on this?

Hi all- 

yeah, sorry this got pushed back. We did launch search in the store/library to search on titles and descriptions, but we decided not to do the limited version of the full search we had in mind (which would not have searched any deeper than a vertical), and instead wait till we had text rendering as text so we could do real search down to the word (as it does in browsers). Fortunately we are now very close to releasing text as text and behind that we'll have search. I don't want to promise end of year as there are still some unknowns but we'll be pushing for it as soon as we can.

Hello David,

Unfortunately not yet.  We are still in the beta development stages of allowing text as actual selectable text which is now currently available:

We hope to eventually add to this function once it is polished but please feel free to provide any feedback you might have.
