Setting Default values in the "Search By" bar via registry.

Yo, 

In prevous versions of TRIM you were able to set default values in the "Search By" drop down list via the following Registry Hive;

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Hewlett-Packard\HP TRIM\History\English\PD\FastFindBy\ID4762

You would just add in the value of the search you wish to populate the list - eg;

"1"="Title Word~~Tip : Type words separated by spaces. Use '*' for wildcard searching.~~14"

"2"="Any Word~~Tip : Search TITLE and NOTES.~~48"

However this regsiry hive is no longer recongised in HPRM 8.2. Does anyone have any suggestions on if you need to use a different Registy Hive Location or if it is even still possible to set default searches to appear in this list?

Thanks!

This would be really useful in RM8. The "Search By" toolbar was introduced as the super-simple search option for beginning users.  This was great in Trim7 because you could setup a list of useful search fields in the history drop-down & deploy it to users.

In RM8 the beginner users needs to master the "Quick-Select" button, which is a bit of a conceptual leap.  Until they master it they can only search 3 fields from the "Search By' toolbar.

Quick-select is great for CTRL+F searches because you're dealing with a slightly more sophisticated user.  But the beginners need that helping hand.

Has no-body found out how to do this in RM8?

Re: Setting Default values in the "Search By" bar via registry.

We have gone live with RM8.1 and wish to set default in Search BY to Record Number not Title Word.  I would be interested if this is available as a registry setting too.  It is not a global setting.

Re: Setting Default values in the "Search By" bar via registry.

We have recently implemented RM8.1 and would also wish to use registry settings to set the default Search BY option to REcord Number not Title Word.
