I'm a bit confused by this. The manual says "The Browser tabs are organized by the different types of content that are relevant to Bitwig Studio, and the search field allows you to find files/folders by name, creator, category, or tags"

I'm not sure how this is supposed to work in the Browser in practice. Can anyone shed any light?

For instance let's say I've saved a device under the Bass category, tagged Soft. How do I find it as such, in the browser?

Just type the tag soft in the browser for devices and presets and your set to go. Could be me, but I can't search on category - Bass in your example.

According to the manual (as you posted) the search on category isn't working as expected. So this is a bug.

Cheers. I think I must have been searching by category. I can get a tag to work now as you say. Sounds like a bug, have you reported it?

Also, in the bottom bit you can click on creator or category, and it goes into the search bar, but you don't get all the results you should, have you tried that? Seems buggy to me. I think it must be the same bug because clicking on tag does actually work.

Is it possible to add your own categories and tags?

Has to be converted to question.

Yes. If you are saving a template, or a creating a collection you get to choose the author, the tags and the description. Also if you are saving a project or even before you save it there is a tab at the far right bottom there are a few different icons in white. 2 arrows, a hand pointing a folder and the "page with bent corner" icon. Select that and that is where you can set all sorts of metadata for your projects that is searchable in and out of Bitwig Studio! Hope that answered your question for the most part.
