Am I the only one wondering why "Search tool" is missing in the tools menu?
I'm fairly new to EPDM, and just recently started to use the search tool.
Are there any other well hidden tools to know about?
The search tool can be added to the menu by the ePDM administrator by group or user.
Under settings | menus | destination menu.
I live in the search tool all day. For quick, easy access, go to C:\Program Files\SolidWorks Enterprise PDM\ and find the Search.exe file. Make a shortcut and put it on your desktop or pin it to your taskbar. One-click access to the search tool!
Yep! this is the way to do it! I even have different Shortcuts to specific Search Cards and even Favorites!
Hi Adrian Velazquez,
Could you explain how you made these shortcuts? Thanks in advance.!
Could you emphasise how you made specific shortcuts directly to search cards?It would help us a lot..!
Hi Flemming, check out this blog for a bit more info or creating desktop shortcuts to the PDM Search Tool:

Thanks Prasad.! This should be on page three of the EPDM help file..
Searching the help file, I find nada..:-\
It's still four clicks for me though. If I do it like that it opens outside of our servers, so I first have to click our server, then searches, then complete search. Is there ay way to make it open in the comlete search?
Still I find it pretty silly a tool is so well hidden..
