advanced search for "All fields and tags"

I am trying to construct an Advanced Search that would filter in the same way as the "All Fields & Tags" main search engine, then further filter those results for only items of a specific type (in my case, Books).

The result should be the same as typing the query into the search bar, but then filtered to return only items matching a specific type.

Currently, I only see a way to use Advanced Search in a more limited manner, searching specific fields (e.g., title) for a query.

Is there another way to do this? Thanks!
  • There's no advanced search equivalent to the quick search bar, but it's a common request and will happen at some point.
  • We've added an Any Field condition — searching all fields, notes, and tags — in the latest Zotero beta. It will be included in Zotero 6.0.19.
  • This is available now in Zotero 6.0.19.

    I'm thankful for this new function.

    In addition, can you add an option of selecting default search criteria?

    For example, whenever I click Advanced Search, Any Field contains... is default search condition?
