Codebook for macOS 3.6.2 Released - Search Scope & Export Selected


This Codebook for macOS release brings two improvements upon existing features:

  • Search Scope which allows you to filter which areas of your data you’re searching on (Entry names, Field values, Label names). See additional information on our blog post
  • Export Selected Entries which allows you to select specific entries from the center pane and export them to CSV or plain text. This allows some additional flexibility if you want to print just one entry, or entries from a specific search result.

Changes in this version:

  • Enables search scope in search field, includes an option to add labels to the search
  • Adds new Export Selected Entries option to the File > Export menu
