    Oh well Guess I keep bouncing tiffs around. 

    Couldn't see anything when I searched. Must have used the wrong terms.

    The forum search is pretty bad.  I couldn't find anything with that either because it just swamps you with tutorial posts about layers and doesn't seem to be able to limit your search to community posts or feature requests.  I found these links with Google search and point Google to  only search site:support.captureone.com.

    For what it's worth, the new AI masking tool does let you add to or remove from an existing rasterized mask.  It still doesn't let you combine a parametric mask with any other mask which is still a feature that is needed, would be greatly appreciated and Lightroom already has.  But if, for example, you want a gradient from the top combined with a gradient from the left, you just can't do that in Capture One.

    Combining Luma Range with the Background mask and judicious use of the brushes and erasers sometimes helps.

    After sending search term there is a Community button on the left of the results though; after clicking it the list of Topics is expanded and it gives a chance to narrow down to Improvements.

    Are you suggesting there's a way to search just the Capture One Improvement posts here on this site?  I don't see how to do that. 

    It's off no use for me to just browse the entire list of Capture One Improvement posts as that's far too inefficient (needle in a haystack).  The leading result I eventually found with Google was posted two years ago.

    John Friend, I have updated my previous post to indicate that I mean buttons appearing to the side of the search results, not in a random place. And that's it, as shown on the screen below.

    That's a cool feature.  Didn't know that was there because you have to have a wider window width than I normally browse with to see that left column.  Thanks - that is useful.  I'll now update my post with the additional posts I've round related to that topic.

    The above post should get its own pinned post on how to search for existing topics related to an improvement idea.

    If the window is too narrow to have that left pane, the buttons are moved to the top as collapsible lists, so all is visible are dark-gray bars titled "Type" and "By Topic". Supplementing for anyone else that missed these almost "black on black" features.

    Walter Rowe we could hope for that... the pinned posts are not visited as frequently as we would hope for, lol. Maybe instruction should be a bit more verbose: https://support.captureone.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/14490836552349-Search-Improve-Capture-One-Pro-topic-first-to-avoid-duplicate-posts

    I have nothing against putting it in a pinned post, but I'd be concerned about who actually reads pinned posts in a forum you don't generally visit as I assume this would be pinned somewhere other than the regular product forums?  I generally just look at the newest posts across all forums and would thus never see such a pinned post.

    What would make more sense is making this enhanced search UI a bit more obvious/discoverable when your window isn't wide.  Even just tweaking the colors of the current implementation (so it isn't black-on-black) could go a long way to making it more obvious.  Perhaps add a heading to the two drop-downs that labels them as "Enhanced Search Options" or something like that?  Or some actual UI person would probably have a good UI tweak suggestion within minutes of looking at that page.

    Improve Capture One Pro, Improve Capture One mobile and Request Camera Support all have a sticky where we explain how to limit the search scope.
