A query is a way to filter out Document Objects based on certain filter criteria. In Aligned Element you can add Queries, modify, copy and rename Queries and also delete them.
A query essentially consists of:
an input set of document objects
a number of filters
These two in combination yield an output set of Document Objects. Queries can be performed on current Document Objects from the master project and the linked projects. Objects from snapshots or of older revisions cannot be included in a Query.
In the Navigation Bar entry Query, select the type name for the Query. In the next view, the left side will display a list of available queries of the type name.
Selecting a query name will display the query definition of the query on the right side.
To run the selected query, click Run.
The result i.e. the Output Set, is displayed on the lower part of the screen.
Use the Action button to preform the following actions on the Output Set.
