Windows file explorer displays both a thumbnail AND the content of the “Notes” for Rhino files.
Yet, it is unable to list Rhino files based on textual content…
In-text search works for most text files, including PDF files containing text, so why should it not work for text included in the notes ?
Is there a utility / 3rd party app that would perform this search ?
We plan to make GH definition that would copy the Block names list in the notes, so that we could easily find Rhino files containing certain parts…
I think that this could be useful for people generating large numbers of Rhino files.
Maybe it’s just as simple as adding the content of the notes in plain text in the Rhino file header ?
Then Windows might be able to index this text, hence the files would become searchable using key words.
By the looks if it we’ll have to create a DLL that implements the IFilter interface, then register it with the shell before such data can become available for Windows to index. This is the link to the MSDN I added in the YouTrack report.
