Search the Preferences

Search for a setting to show the closest match in the Preferences window. Or use the API to display selectable search results in a dropdown list.

In the search bar, type a keyword. The closest match is shown in the Preferences window.
Tip: Via the API, you can switch between the default filter search mode (above) and the dropdown search mode. In dropdown search mode, as you type a keyword in the search bar, a dropdown list appears, displaying all search results. Select the desired setting from the dropdown list to locate it in the Preferences window.
