Isolate search to a particular group/folder?

Sometimes I want to only search in a particular group or a sub-group or an individual folder, but with the search bar at the upper righthand corner, I am unable to (it’s a global search).

Is it possible to narrow down your search or is DEVONthink meant to be like this?


The search window is a true global search, searching across all open databases by default. The search field in the toolbar searches in the selected database, but you can narrow the search to the current group or even a selection of documents by choosing the ‘In Selection’ option when clicking on the disclosure triangle in the search field.

Fantastic. I do apologise for not knowing about this in the first place.

No need to apologize-glad I could help!
