The Results List is where you will spend most your time. This is where all your library files and searches are displayed. You can customize the layout of columns, save layout snapshots, use the Search Bar to display filtered results and manage all your files.
Library / Search Results
When you click a library in the PeakTree all records in that library are displayed in the result list.
If you perform a search, by default the search is done on your entire database. You can then click a library to filter results in that library based off your search in real-time. This means even after you have entered a search you can click through your libraries and only show records based off the search result.
To focus all your searches on a specific set of libraries hold Ctrl/Cmd + Click the library to force results only from those libraries. Do the same to reverse this selection. Check the PeakTree page for more detailed info on how to filter your libraries in the Results List
Hint: If you have selected a library or performed a search and want to go back and display ALL RECORDS in your database again, make sure all search boxes are clear, click in the first search box and just press Enter and this will revert back to display all records.
Column Layout & Snapshots
You can customize the fields that are displayed in the result list and reorder their position easily. Simply Right-Click the header of the result list to select the fields you want to display and Click-Drag the headers to reorder the positions.
Snapshots will store your current result list view including the fields displayed, positions and sizing. This can be handy to create different views to see the metadata you need for a search. There are 4 snapshot slots which you can choose to store the current layout or recall a stored layout by Right-Click the header bar
Navigating the file list is as simple as navigating files on your computer. Use the mouse and scroll bars or use the keyboard Up / Down arrows to step through results. As you scroll each sound will play automatically which you can toggle with this button in the transport bar:
Shortcut Keys for Playback
Pause Playback = Space
Retrigger Sound = Esc
Result List Options
This option button (Option menu on mac) allows some options to set how files and groups of associated files will be displayed in the list.

When ON keeps track of which records you clicked on already until manually cleared. You will see the number of records increasing near the Results Tab. To reset it to back zero simply click on the greenish number label:

Show Header Grouping (PC Only)
Set ON to show “header grouping” which allows you to set which headers you want to arrange your results by. When enabled, a bar will appear at the top of the results list where you can drag headers from any column into the bar in the order you would like to arrange your results. Drag any added header out of the grouping bar area to remove it and click any of the headers to order first by that header
Expand Rows Dynamically
When ON the results list will display multi-line [description] and [track_title] fields using multiple lines in the result list. Switch OFF to display as a single line (affects only records with multi-line description/track title data.
Show Extra Split Channels

Double Click to Open in Wave Editor

Right click options are pretty self-explanatory and have associated keyboard shortcuts to speed up workflow.
