Help on the Place Cities tab
The Cities tab displays an alphabetical list of the primary and alternate names of Cities contained within a place such as a State or County.
DisplayThe city name and location are displayed in a table.
CityThe primary or alternate name or spelling of the city. Alternate names and spellings are indicated with an asterisk (*) following the name.
LocationIndicates the location of the city with the place. For example, for a state the location would indicate the county where the city is located. For an alternate name, the location also includes the primary name of the city.
If there are more than 25 city entries in the list, the list is divided into pages of 25 entries each.
The paging toolbar (shown at right) allows you to move forward and backward within the pages of city entries. The toolbar contains four page navigation buttons described below:
The navigation toolbar is located at the top of the list at the far right. A second navigation toolbar if located at the bottom of the list in the center of the tab.
Some buttons will be disabled if the corresponding page navigation is not possible, such as the Previous Page button when you are already viewing the first page.
Using a filter, you can quickly locate entries in a long list.
A long list can contain dozens or even hundreds of pages making finding a specific city difficult and tedious. Using the filter capability, you can narrow down the list to only cities whose name matches the filter expression. For example, by entering "gr" into the filter text box and pressing the Apply button, only cities whose name includes a word starting with "gr" will be displayed.
|Filter||Matches Cities with||Example Matches|
|p||Any word starting with the letter 'p'||East Plymouth|
|pin||Any word starting with "pin"||Corner of the Pines|
|grove||Any word starting with "grove"||Birch Groves|
|p g||Any word starting with 'p' and another word starting with 'g'||Pine Grove|
|g p||Any word starting with 'g' and another word starting with 'p'||Pine Grove|
In the filters "p g" and "g p" above there is a space between the letters.
