Use this dialog box to optimize the processing of custom properties in the DataFinder My DataFinder. When you optimize a custom property the DataFinder displays a new button for this custom property, in the search area. This button lists all existing values for this custom property. The list makes it easier for you to specify the property value you want to search for, and to avoid spelling errors. The DataFinder can search faster for custom properties that you previously optimized.

Settings
