Unify 1.1.3 Searching by all libs does not work in general search or by tags only works with a specific lib.

It certainly works for me. Can you give an example?

One important thing which has changed (see https://pluginguru.net/unify/change-log.html ) is that the search-text is now matched against not only the patch-name, but also the tags, categories, and author items. Hence if you search "piano", you will find patches which don't have the word "piano" in their names, but might have it in their tags or categories items.

In All libs I get no results, but when I choose a specific lib.

This certainly works for me. The only way I can reproduce what your screenshot shows is by typing two spaces after "BASS".

Please try clicking on "Reset All", then try your search again. If that doesn't work, try rebuilding the patch database by clicking on the lightning-bolt icon, then try again. If it still doesn't work, please describe the exact sequence of steps to reproduce the issue.

Hi Shane,

I start Unify, after browse, click Reset all, and Rebuild Patch lib. Then I don't see any search results.
This happens on my MBP, the search works fine on my iMac.
I am an early adopter and is it an idea that I install Unify from scratch. Obviously I don't want to lose my own Patches?

Thanks in advanced.

Greetings from The Netherlands.

Boy

It's very strange that this happens on one Mac, but not another. I'm not convinced yet, that reinstalling is the answer.

  • Are both Macs running the same version of Unify?
  • Are they both set to the same language settings?
  • As you are typing "BASS", at what point does the entire list of patch names disappear? (If no patches are listed even before you have typed anything, you have a database problem, which I can help with.)

  • The same Unify version runs on both computers.
  • They do not have the same language (MBP English, iMac Dutch).
  • No patches are visible with all libs.
    The search works for each separate lib.

How can we renew the database?

Locate the main Unify Libraries folder (in the main Unify data folder). Inside it, locate the file presets.db, and rename it to e.g. old-presets.db.

IF there is a favorites.xml folder in there too, rename it to e.g. old-favorites.xml before moving on to the next step.

Then re-run Unify stand-alone, open the patch browser, and click the lightning-bolt icon. This will rebuild the patch database completely from scratch. If this does not fix your problem, you probably have one or more problem patch files which are interfering with the database somehow. Zip up the two files old-presets.db and old-favorites.xml and post the zip archive here; I will see if I can repair the issue.

Problem remains the same.

The db + favorites files are in 2 places: 1) in users .... and 2) on my external disk where the libs are located.

I have now renamed the folder in users so that I am sure Unify goes to my ext. disk: PluginGuru/Unify/Libraries/presets.db.

I've also created a new lib called 'Boy's toppers' that doesn't work properly.

Maybe that's the problem and should I remove it and create a new lib.

The "Boy's toppers" lib is absolutely the problem. Unify interprets the apostrophe as an opening quote mark, and this causes all kinds of problems. Remove that library, rebuild your database, and that should fix things.

This exact same issue was just found by another customer. I had never made a library with an apostrophe in the name, so I didn't realize it could be such a problem. I will be looking to see if there's a way we can fix this in a future update, but for now, just name the library something different (which does not contain any apostrophes) and you should be fine.

Thanks for uploading the zip file. I'll have a look at it soon, and see if I can repair the database for you. If you made a lot of presets in the "Boy's toppers" library, zip those up too and I can fix them. Otherwise, you'll just have to throw away those files and start again. I'm very sorry about that.

I'm so glad we found the cause. I am still in a study phase so I remove the borer lib and start again, only educational.
Many thanks for the great support is much appreciated.

I am very happy with both of you John and Shane. warm regards Boy Kollee

Here's a version of your presets.db with the "Boy's toppers" patches removed, but all your favorites intact.

Thank you. Here are the patches in the bad lib, if it is simple for you to fix them it would be nice otherwise I will work on it myself.

Here they are. I have changed the library name to "User Library", so put all the .unify files into Unify's User Library/Patches folder.
