Apologies for repeating the question, but I hadn't made it clear I was talking about "iView Media" and not "iViewMedia Pro".

So, in iView Media, how can I choose two or more categories to display? e.g. I want to see photos that have keywords "South Africa" and "speeches" so I can see speeches in South Africa (rather than speeches AND South Africa which I currently get when I CTRL click)

Many thanks
Corin

You would need to use the Find dialog to do that search in iView Media version 2. You can't do it in iView MediaPro version 2 either. It's something we added in version 3.

Regards, Phil.

Thanks, but I can't work out the Find dialog. For example, how would I find Locations of Colombia using it? There is no "location" choice in the dropdown. Neither is there one for Keywords, People or Dates - not of much use unfortunately...

I'm on Pro so not sure about the standard version but is it just a case of typing in "columbia" (without the quotes) and that will search all fields? I'd assume IVM wouldn't be so anal as to request which field it should search. An option yes but a necessity no.

cpearce:

The Find capability in iView Media does not allow for searching on keywords or other annotations. These are the only items you can search on:


It's pretty limited in it's Find capability.

Sorry for the misleading reply earlier. You're right the Find doesn't cover those annotations. At the moment there isn't a real way to cross reference fields in iView Media like there is in iView MediaPro.

I thought of a clunky way of doing it that assumes you haven't got any items labelled before you start. but maybe someone can come up with something better. Show all 'Speeches', select all, apply label 1. Show all 'South Africa' and the ones with label 1 are your intersections.

Sorry I can't think of anything easier.

BTW I've noticed that iView Media discussions often get confused as people (myself included) answer as if the question was about MediaPro. So I thought a forum specifically for iView Media would help. In some forums a moved post would imply some wrong doing by the poster, obviously not the case here.

I hope this helps. Phil.

Great idea, Phil. I've fallen into that trap more than once.

Agreed, nice idea, but Phil just to point out that your subheading for this forum on the index page still says "General discussion about iView MediaPro"... Obviously you need to differentiate it from the IVMP forum.

Is there a posting somewhere that explains the differences between iview media and mediapro3?
