Searching for Text (Main Window)

(Go back to Main Window )

The Search Text window is useful in locating a specific piece of information from DM Genie's large database of skills, feats, spells and powers. Enter the text to search for in the “Find What” text box. Check the “Case Sensitive” box if you want to return only results where the case is identical. The “Search In...” checkboxes allow you to limit your search to specific elements. Click “Find Next” and DM Genie will highlight the next place the text is found. Whenever you change the text in “Find What”, the search will restart from the beginning.

Searching Creatures

You may search for a creature's name, for some text in a creature's description, or for the name of an item the creature is carrying, or for any combination of the three. DM Genie will search either only in the current group or in All Creatures, depending on what you select in the box at right.

Searching the Database

Check the box next to what you want to search: skills, feats, abilities, spells and/or powers. Searches are done in the full description of each of these items. Once the text has been found for one item (skill, spell, etc.), the program does not search further into the description for that item – clicking “Find Next” will return the next item with the selected text.
