Let's say you have a structured outline.
 
Let's say the first three levels are topic/sub-topics  and levels beyond that contain large text blocks with information.
 
Let's say you want to search for particular topics.  A problem is that the key words for one topic may appear in the text portions of many unrelated topics.
 
 
so,  try this:
 
 
Using slang extension (of course) set up a filter:
 
folder = Mr./Mrs.   (or any text folder in the file)
EQUALS
 
++:: ITL < 3
 
 
 
save as named filter such as Level < 3
 
turn on the filter.
 
 
 
you'll notice nothing happens to your view.
 
all your items are in the view as before, even though the filter is activated.
 
 
but now try this:
 
 
in the quick search box,  set to Filter,  and enter some search term...
 
 
you'll notice that the term only matches if it is contained in the first 2 sub levels of any item.
 
 
Cool!  Smiley
