You can search for a specific one-time date, using either its unique internal ID, or its name, using part of its name or regular expressions.


From inside the saints and namedays manager, click on the Find button located on the left-hand side toolbar, as shown on the right.


The Find Dialog


The Find Dialog then appears, and you can search for a particular saint/nameday or saint/nameday exception, by selecting Saints or Saints Exception, at the top left of the dialog.



Look for


You can only search for a holidays set by an ID, and then there are no further search settings.


You can refine the search for a particular saint/nameday or saint/nameday exception by specifying that the search should be case sensitive, limited to whole words, or that it should use regular expressions.




Use the Where setting to narrow-down your search.


The setting Everywhere is obvious; the search looks for one-time-dates inside every holidays set, regardless of its position in the hierarchy. The setting In same folder and below looks for one-time-dates inside every holidays set below the selected set. The setting In same folder only only looks for one-time-dates inside sets within the same folder as the selected set, and the setting Only in current set looks for one-time-dates inside the currently selected holidays set only.



Note that the second and third options are based on the folder of the currently selected set, not necessarily the set itself. So, for example, as is the case in the examples below, if the selected set is not a folder, then the search starts from the parent folder of the currently selected set.




After you click on the Find button, the results of a search for part of a name are displayed at the bottom of the search dialog, with the searched for term being highlighted.



If you are searching for an ID, and a recurring holiday of that ID is found, then the matching holidays set is selected in the tree-view list of holidays sets.




If you click on any of the displayed results, the Saints Manager will automatically jump to the corresponding holidays set and saint. You can then modify that saint, without closing the Find Results dialog, and then move to another of the results.
