Optimizing Properties for DIAdem DataFinder Advanced Search

Issue Details

When I perform an advanced search in the DataFinder and specify a pre-programmed DIAdem property like Name or Unit, I can click the ... button on the far right to view a list of available values for this property. How can I obtain that list of values for one of my custom properties?
Fig. The Property field and ... button are highlighted in the image above.


By default, the DataFinder does not optimize custom properties. You can specify which properties you would like to optimize by navigating to Settings»My DataFinder»Optimize Custom Properties... to open the dialog box shown below.

Select the tab corresponding to the category that contains the property you would like to optimize (FileGroup, or Channel). Scroll through the list to find your property and change the Optimization field from Not optimized to Optimized. You can repeat this process for multiple properties or choose Optimize All

When you have selected all of the desired properties, click OK to save the changes and close the window.
