Contents Tool Factory Database V3 Searching the Bank
Grade: K-12
Required products: Tool Factory Database V2
The “Search” feature is a valuable time saver to find just the right picture, video, or sound.

There is a “Search” feature at the bottom of the bank. Instead of browsing all those folders, conduct a search for a specific picture, video, or sound.
1) Type in the search term at the bottom of the bank.
2) Click the “Search” button at the bottom of the bank.
3) The search results will appear in a category at the top of the bank.
4) Insert pictures as usual.

*TIP* Clear the search results before conducting another search, otherwise they accumulate. Click the “Clear” button at the bottom of the bank.

Make sure to select the right bank!

Bank button #1 is Words.
Bank button #2 is Pictures.
Bank button #3 is Video.
Bank button #4 is Sounds.

The search feature doesn’t work in the word bank (#1 bank button). Realistically, searching for a word is silly, because by the time a search is conducted for a word, it would have been just as easy to type it straight into the project!
