How do you search for an object?

How do you quickly search for a specific object in a layer?


We have a layer with lampposts in a city. Each lamppost has its own number. To search for a lighthouse with the number 999, simply:

  1. Open the Lanterns Layer Attributes Table
  2. Open the Basic Filter and select 999 in the Lighthouse Number field
  3. Press Enter (all beacons whose numbers contain the string 999 will be searched for, i.e. 1999 too, for example)
  4. Click on the line with the number 999
  5. Wait until the Information Panel opens
  6. Click on the Zoom tool

A more advanced search can be carried out using the Advanced Filter.
