Populate by Search Criteria - help

Is there a way to search and list (either on-screen or printed) based on a category listed in the Information box? I want to search all fonts by a copyright/designer/trademark name so I can organize fonts by my favorites. I've searched the manual and found this at the end of the manual but I'm not sure where it might apply (more variables on the following page including {FONT_DESIGNER} and {FONT_TRADEMARK}). I've tried the print function, but I don't see a place to put any SEARCH criteria.

You can not search all those fields, but you can use search by foundry from the upper right corner:

Unfortunately, this is what a large portion of mine show. Even outside of Unknown, most only show the name of the program it was created from. Do you happen to know what that portion of the manual is referring to? (referring to the pic attached to the original post) I was wondering if I could export a font list to excel and sort on these categories listed from there.

How about searching by your chosen criteria, then tagging the fonts? Print or export the tagged fonts to HTML.

Sort by foundry first, open the Font Information, Naming category, then scroll through looking for the Copyright Information. Tag all Google Fonts with one tag, etc.

As mentioned in the user manual, those font variables are only available for Print and HTML Export, but can not be used as search criteria.
