not sure if this is a suggestion or a bug...advanced searching full text and another criteria

Daniel C. shared this question 4 years ago

Hey there,

(This is for citavi 5; not sure if this is still the case in 6).

When I run an advanced search with both full text and another criteria (like author), Citavi will search through every single pdf first, and then narrow down the results to the particular author.

This seems a little silly—both a waste of time and resources?

Why not have the full text search run last after the other criteria have been applied, and that way it's only searching on a few pdfs?

Hi Daniel,

Thank you very much for your message.

This was indeed a bug with Citavi 5 which is fixed in Citavi 6.

In cloud projects, a full text index is created so that searches run even faster.

Kind regards,
