Search Rules

If you need to find one rule among many, or filter the list of rules for a certain folder to show only those matching some criteria, you can use Hazel’s search feature to do so.

To search or filter, click the search   icon below the “Rules” list and type any text in the search field that appears.

As you type, Hazel filters the list of rules to show only items containing the search term. (The search term can appear in the rule’s name, in its note, or in  any  of the rule’s fields—including embedded AppleScripts, JavaScripts, and shell scripts.)

To see recent search terms, click the magnifying glass   icon in the search field. Choose a recent search from the pop-up menu to use it again, or choose “Clear” to clear recent searches.
