The Search playlist function in Amarok is very powerful, as it allows you to search for different tracks by various constraints. The search results limits what you can actually see, which makes it easy to queue up wanted tracks, or remove them from the playlist.
When you type something in the Search playlist field, Amarok will search in your playlist and mark matching tracks, artists and so forth.
The first track that matches the current search will be highlighted as in this example:
This is a small drop down menu with options for the search field, if you need more than simple search. You can choose which types of searching you want to use in your Search playlist. Check the boxes according to what you need for your search.
|Amarok will search for text from tag: Track Titles|
|Search for text from tag: Album titles|
|Search for text from tag: Artist|
|Search for text from tag: Genre|
|Search for text from tag: Composer|
|Search the rating of all songs in your playlist|
|Search for year of publication|
|When this box is marked Amarok will display only the tracks that match the current search|
