Search Edit dropdown

Post by etc » Thu Jan 30, 2020 5:41 am

1.
It's annoying that the Search Edit dropdown (topmost?) blocks the IME candidate window.
Hope there'll be a solution.

2.
Hope keyboard shortcuts can work even when the Search Edit dropdown is open.

It's annoying that the Search Edit dropdown (topmost?) blocks the IME candidate window.
Could you please send a screenshot?

Does enabling show search history above the search edit help:
  • In Everything, type in the following search and press ENTER:
    /search_history_show_above=1
To show search history below (default):
  • In Everything, type in the following search and press ENTER:
    /search_history_show_above=0
Hope keyboard shortcuts can work even when the Search Edit dropdown is open.
Fixed for the next major release.

/search_history_show_above = 0 or 1 doesn't help.

With these INI settings the suggestions will not overlap the results:

Code: Select all

search_history_always_suggest=1
search_history_always_suggest_extend_toolbar=1
search_history_always_suggest_visible_count_max=5
(There is no similar setting for when the suggestions are *not* alway visible)

See Hidden INI settings for details.

Thanks but I don't mean the results.
The screenshot shows I'm editing in Search Edit with IME.

search_history_always_suggest_extend_toolbar is interesting, though not my style.
