Speed Bar Basics


The Speed Bar allows quick listing searches using abbreviations and shortcuts. Criteria can be entered directly into the Speed Bar or changed after running a search to narrow your results. You can also save your Speed Bar search as a shortcut to use it again in the future. The Speed Bar accepts two types of input:


Speed Bar Shorthand: A series of simple codes you enter into the Speed Bar. Matrix translates your entries into search criteria and runs the corresponding search.


Speed Bar Shortcuts: Any Matrix search that you've 'Saved As' a Speed Bar shortcut. Enter its name in the Speed Bar, and Matrix runs that saved search.


Note: Use spaces between Shorthand codes, not commas
