Search problem

Postby Wyl » 29 Dec 2011, 18:40

Hi, can someone help how i make this search in Magic Album?

I want to search my collection for cards, which have something to do with "Zombie". This means I want to find cards, which have Zombie in Text or Type. But I can not find a field to filter for this. If I try to type "Zombie" to "Subtype" and to "Oracle Text" field, the software seems to use "AND" even if i set "OR" and shows only cards which have Zombie in Subtype or Text.

Thanks
Wyl

I don't think this is possible in MA right now. The AND/OR/NOT for each search field applies only to the text in that specific field. When multiple fields are used, each field is automatically AND'd with the others, as your zombie search has shown. I believe there is a feature request ticket in the bug tracker addressing this.

For now, I think your best option is to do two separate searches:
-Subtype: AND Zombie, Oracle Text: NOT Zombie
-Subtype: NOT Zombie, Oracle Text: AND Zombie
This will produce two mutually exclusive (so the two searches will not have overlapping results) search results which, combined, will return all the cards you want.

Yes, right now it is not possible. And it is already added to the wishlist.
