Special searches use opt-in Search Providers that Quick Search ignores unless you explicitly use them. Special searches differ from regular searches in the following ways:
- You can only execute a special search using its search token.
- You cannot combine a special search with any other Search Provider.
- You cannot toggle a special Search Provider on and off in the Filters pane. However, you can disable Special Searches from the Quick Search Preferences.
To perform a special search, prefix your search query with the provider's search token.
Quick search has the following special Search Providers:
|Calculator||Computes mathematical expressions.||
Calculates the answer to the expression
|Command Query||Searches for items that support a specific command.||
Searches for Scene items that you can select.
|Help||Searches the Quick Search help.||
Searches for Quick Search help entries containing the word "Asset".
|Resource||Searches for loaded resources.||
Searches all loaded resources, and returns Texture type resources only.
|Static API Method||Finds and executes static API methods.||
Searches for static API methods with "Mesh" in their names.
