Will the Dropbox search feature show a mockup file if I search for 'photo frame'?

Explorer | Level 3

If a photoshop file contains a mockup of a e.g. photo frame and the photoshop layer is named 'photo frame', but the PSD file is simply called 'mockup', will the dropbox search feature show this file if I search for 'photo frame'? Or, does the file name have to be called 'photo frame' as well? 

Thanks in advance

James

Thanks for reaching out to us here @jduk42!

The searching function would be able to find files from their name, keywords within the file and extensions. 

In this case, the file type isn't searchable so you wouldn't be able to locate the file using "photo frame".

I hope this helps, let me know if you have any questions!

Hi Daphne,

Thanks for the quick reply. So to clarify, the 'AutoOCR', 'Full text search' or any other Dropbox feature doesn't locate photoshop layer names within a Photoshop file?

Thanks, James

Thanks for getting back to me here @jduk42!

At the moment, OCR is available only for text within .pdf files. You can find a little more info on this here.

You can also check out which file types are searchable with full-text search from here.

Sorry that I couldn't be of much help with this. Don't hesitate to get back to me here though with any questions though James.

Cheers!
