Search open-ends using regular expression

Updated at July 17th, 2023

Protobi supports simple search and filtering of text verbatims. The search filter appears when there are 10 or more distinct values.

Example filters

Try entering the following filters:

  • able matches any element containing the string 'able'
  • able$ matches any element ending with the string 'able'
  • ^fa matches any string starting with 'fa'
  • some|ful matches any string containing 'some' or 'ful'

Values are filtered out as you type, but do not drill in. Press the "Apply" button to actually enter the filter as a subsetting constraint.

Protobi search uses Regular Expressions, which can be very simple to very expressive. See the RegEx cheat sheet.
