    MagicFilter and Search

 
 
           * Find the intersect points between data in different folders.
             
           * Instantly filter items from the sub-folders of a folder  
     in a single click.
     
           * Filter based on folder structure and contexts, based on any
     of a group of folders being assigned to an item.
 
...........For example,  Let's say you have a folder "Mall" with sub folders "JC Penny's", "Neiman's", "Polo", "Victoria's Secret", "Old Navy", "Hush Puppies", "Chops", and "Red Dog's".   In context filter mode, by checking "Mall" if an item has a value in any of the "Mall" sub folders,  the filter will match.  Multiple context filters and sub-filters can be used at the same time.

 
           * Create instant on-the-fly 'ALL' or 'ANY' filters just by checking
     the desired folders in the folder outline.
     
           * Create explicit filters.  Normal ecco filters apply if an item's
     parent matches the filter.  MagicFilter filters apply only if an item
     explicitly has the designated folder values.
     
           * Freely combine MagicFilters with native ecco filters, and
     update the MagicFilter portion 'on-the-fly'.
 
           * Filter based on VIEWED items-- narrow searches to currently
     viewed or selected items.  
 
...........For example,  Let's say you have 100 header items (as TLIs in folder or as sub-items of any item) on different subjects.  There may be a 'mass' of text under those headers.   Two or three headers (and their 'mass' of sub text) may be on certain subjects.  If you search for a keyword you'll find the first matching header.  If you press Control + N you'll get the next match inside the 'mass' of sub-items you're not looking for-- not so helpful.   With a VIEW FILTER you can select (or simply set the view to show the desired item level) and then search only those items currently shown in the view,  or only within those items you select.

 
           * Append new searches to Phonebook view, adding the matching items to the existing phonebook view, instead of replacing the existing view with the new items.

Example 1  
 
Example of instant intersect filter.
 
 
What's going on here  
 
A "New" ecco file was opened (from standard default.ect  sans pointer corruptions).
 
Magic Filter was run,  right click on Icon,  REFRESH.
 
Right click on Icon Create Ecco MFilter.
 
Select Tools > Filter View > MFilter
 
Check Priority and Daily Journal folders.
 
Click in All selected.
 
 
 
 
Note:
 
You can select a parent and multi-level sub folders by pressing "Shift" when clicking on the folder.
 
In "in ALL selected" mode,  a match of *any* of the branch of folders is sufficient.  So,  if you have 15 sub-contexts and check the parent context and all sub-contexts (can also be multi-leveled beyond parent/child),  not likely any item will have all sub-contexts checked!  Instead *any* item in the branch is taken as all of the items being selected for filtering purposes.
 
To require matching actually *all* the folders checked,  hold down "Shift" when pressing "in ALL selected".

Example 2  
 
Example of a context filter.
 
 
What's going on here  
 
Items are assigned to very specific contexts.
 
Contexts exist in a larger context.
 
Items are also assigned priority, type of activity, etc.
 
Shift + Click selects/deselects folder & all levels of sub folders
 
Magic Filter for "in ALL selected".
 
 
 
Note:
 
Items must be in "Things to Do" folder.
 
Items can be in *any* of the checked "Shopping" folders.
 
 
Very much helps making sure you do what you need to do when you are there.
 
Contexts can be time zones,  or any other resource besides physical location-- for example people.
