Put Search Results in
You can choose where to display the results of your search. You have the following radio button options:
- New 'My Selection': If this is checked, a new 'My Selection' virtual folder will be created, containing the result of your NoteID Range search. You have the option of entering a name for the virtual folder (if left blank, the default 'MySelection#' naming scheme will be used).
- Current 'My Selection' (append to): If this is checked, your search results will be added to the current 'My Selection' virtual folder. This option is only available when there is already a 'My Selection' folder active in your scanEZ session.
- Current 'My Selection' (replace): If this is checked, your search results will be added to the current 'My Selection' virtual folder replacing the original content of the folder. This option is only available when there is already a 'My Selection' folder active in your scanEZ session.
