When I select the bring up the assets search rail by selecting the "filter" option, it immediately lists all assets from that directory and sub-directories by default. Selecting an asset type or tag from the predicate list then narrows down the assets displayed, but can I limit (or halt) the initial display of all assets when that search rail for is loaded? I'd rather it not search at all until the user selects a predicate or enters a full-text search....just load the form. Is that possible?
That is not possible with changing the code of AEM. This is not a documented use case.
Wow, really? So if I select the search filter drop-down at the root level, it will load thumbnails for all assets? I know I saw a doc that showed a checkbox that said 'search current directory" or something like that but i can't locate that doc now. So there is no simple option to limit initial search scope?
