I experience the sort function as limitedly functioning;
1. When I search for 'starts with' (begint met in Dutch) it still shows items with the second word matching too. Meaning I cannot search specifically.
2. The sort function does not include a search om on title (In Dutch 'Kop') or subtitle. As a biologist/bird hunter I have numerous pictures named after the species shown. If I want to look for the best pictures showing specific species (and reduce the number to increase quality) I need to type the titles one by one. If I would be able to search on the titles, the cleaning up of my library would be much easier.
Please get this added in the search function in Lightroom (or Bridge)
There are certainly limitations in the Filter Bar. It doesn't always work the way I would like (or the way many people would like). You may want to consider using a plug-in that makes many of these difficulties go away: https://johnrellis.com/lightroom/anyfilter.htm
Thanks dj, but I am sorry to state that a plug-in producing a listing does not really help. I want my pictures sorted in the order I want to work with these. I already use jb_listview to sort next to Lightroom, but that still forces me to use 2 screens and type in the sort names.
I would appreciate if Adobe would take care of it within the search function they offer.
I feel your pain: a bit over 30 years ago I needed a database that could sort on multiple levels and at the time there was nothing available. Then, a new company, FileMaker, came out with their database product, FileMaker 1.0. I bought a copy and have been using it ever since. This should not be hard for a database (and that is what Lightroom Classic is), so I do encourage you to send this request off to Adobe. If you do, please leave a link to your request here and I will sign on to it.
