Select graphics and spreadsheet data with Instant Search

Titler Live includes an Instant Search feature that enables you to select a graphic in the playlist by typing a graphic's name. Also, if a spreadsheet is connected to a graphic (which is a feature available in Titler Live Broadcast, Complete, and Present), you can select data in a spreadsheet by typing a graphic's name and the data that you want to display.

Note for Broadcast Pix: This feature is not available in NewBlueNTX.

Tip: Consider naming your graphics in a way that is easy to remember and type; the graphic's name is what you'll type to select a graphic when using Instant Search. To rename a graphic, double-click the name of a graphic in the playlist and enter a new name.
