SongList Search Helpful Hints

Broad Match - Enter several keywords (or parts of keywords) to narrow down your search results. Ex: Enter "pres lone" to locate "Are You Lonesome Tonight" by "Elvis Presley".  
Multiple Selections - To Select/Deselect Multiple listings, hold DOWN the "CTRL" key while clicking the desired listings.  
To select consecutive listings, click the FIRST desired listing and hold DOWN the "SHIFT" key while selecting the LAST desired listing.  
Embedded Search - Use surrounding "quotes" (") to search for complete "phrases". ie:{"My Way" Elvis} will locate the song "My Way" by Elvis Presley or "I Did It My Way" by Elvis, since both files contain the "phrase" "My Way" and also include "Elvis" anywhere.  
Search As You Type (H) - Activating this options allows for immediate Search Results without the need to click a button! CAUTION: Extremely large Songlists may impose excessive CPU load on the underlying computer system. This is entirely dependent on the System Performance capabilities.
