Searches – Overview

Transana lets you search for Quotes, Clips, and Snapshots that contain specified Keywords or text. Searches are named, and, once created, they appear in reverse chronological order under the Search node in the Database Tree. This lets you keep track of what you’ve searched for and what you found when you searched. You can save the results of a Search as a Collection, but Search Results are not otherwise permanent because searching is essentially an exploratory activity and not all of your searches will provide interesting results. You can also save search specifications to re-use as your analysis proceeds.
