Having trouble finding that little gold butterfly clip you saw in that cute layout two weeks ago? You remember that it was created by a DSP designer, but who? And what kit was it in? No worries, the DSP Advanced Search feature will find it for you quickly and easily.
In the DSP Store you will see 2 Search boxes, one at the top and
one on the right-hand side. Look at the one on the right-hand side.
Just below the Search button you will see a link called Advanced
Search. Don't be intimidated by this powerful link. This is what
is going to help you find that perfect item for your layout!
When you click the Advanced Search link, a page will come up that looks like this:
Here's where you can get specific and search for exactly what you're
looking for. As an example we'll search for my gold butterfly clip
in my Batik Butterfly Add-on Pack. Here's the element that
we're searching for:
Now if we just enter the word "butterfly" in the Search
Criteria category you'll see that we'll get 11 products containing
butterflies. You could search through all of these products to find
the butterfly clip, but let's save some time and get more specific.
Let's add the word "clip" to our search and see what happens.
Uh oh. Nothing came up. Why is that? If you just add words to the
Search Criteria box, it searches titles only. Click the box "Search
in Product Descriptions" and try again.
Voila! Only 2 products came up and there's the butterfly clip-
right in the first item listed! Success! Clicking the Search
in Product Descriptions box will greatly improve your search success.
Product titles do not carry much information about the kit, but
the DSP designers are very careful to include as much detail as
possible in their product descriptions.
You can also search by category, designer, price or date. If you
have a lot of details about what you're looking for, you can get
very specific using these other search options. However, if you're
like me and can't remember to many specific details about a product,
then the Search Criteria box and checking the Search in Products
and Descriptions box is the way to go!
