Is there a way to add extra search keywords to a feature?

Sometimes it would be nice to be able to type a few different things into the feature search bar and find the right thing. For example I have this Cone feature, but it can also make cylinders. I don't want to name the feature "Cone/Cylinder" but would love for the keyword "cylinder" to also bring it up when searching. Likewise for the "Cube" feature, I'd love to also let people type "box" and bring it up.

    I use this
    annotation { "Feature Type Name" : "C2i Redondeo Completo",
            "Filter Selector" : ["allparts", "c2i"],
            "Editing Logic Function" : "C2iELRedondeoCompleto",
            "Icon" : icon::BLOB_DATA
        }
    So you can try with
    annotation { "Feature Type Name" : "Cone",
            "Filter Selector" : ["allparts", "Cylinder"],
            "Manipulator Change Function" : "twoEndedManipulatorFunction",
            "Editing Logic Function" : "twoEndedPrimitiveEditingLogic",
            "Icon" : icon::BLOB_DATA}

    Un saludo,

    Ah cool, thanks! What I'm looking for is a way to make it show up here, which Filter Selector doesn't seem to do.

    • ”Feature Type Description”: A description of what the feature does and how to use it, to be displayed in feature tooltips and the “Search tools” panel.
    annotation { "Feature Type Name" : "Slot",
       "Feature Type Description" : "Creates a rectangular slot in a selected part.<br>" ~
       "This feature is an <b>example</b>"
     }
    This should work
    annotation { "Feature Type Name" : "Cone",
            "Feature Type Description" : "Creates cones and cylinders"],
    "Manipulator Change Function" : "twoEndedManipulatorFunction", "Editing Logic Function" : "twoEndedPrimitiveEditingLogic", "Icon" : icon::BLOB_DATA}

    Thanks.I've tried that too, but it doesn't make it show up when I search it. It just adds a description once you find it, which is still cool. Just not what I'm going for.

    The keyword search is an internal table we maintain - great IR though.

    Ditto, this would be incredibly useful for me.
