3Shape has a search bar in the top right of Dental Manager, to help you find your cases.
By default, the Search is set to Match Whole Text. What this means is you must type in the case name exactly as it exists - the entire name, not just a portion of it (i.e., 121016_Bridge_Abutment_Smith, and not just Smith or 121016). This can be difficult and tedious, depending on naming system.
Being able to search any part of any column is a faster way to find the case you're looking for.
To change the default Search criteria
Click on the down triangle icon in the Search field.
Click on Any column. This is now the default.
Now your searches can be on any part of any text in any column!
