Problems in 1.3.1.636b

Post by pscapini » Fri Mar 01, 2013 12:26 am

Running on Win7 64 bit:
1. "Select search on mouse click" option doesn't seem to work
2. Escape key doesn't close window

In previous versions, when I pressed the hotkey (Alt-Space in my case), the search window popped up with last search terms already highlighted (with "remember last search" on), so that as soon as I started typing a new term could be entered. Now, if I enable "remember last search", the caret is at the end of last searched string and I have to delete it manually.

Thanks!

1. "Select search on mouse click" option doesn't seem to work
What is select_text_mode in the Everything.ini set to?

Please make sure select_text_mode in the Everything.ini is set to 1.
If this is set to 2, the caret will move to the end instead of selecting the text with "Select search on mouse click" enabled.
2. Escape key doesn't close window
Please check the keyboard shortcut for the close command is set to Escape.
To check:
  • In Everything, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the Keyboard tab.
  • Select File | Close in the command list.
  • Is Escape displayed in the shortcuts for File | Close command?
In previous versions, when I pressed the hotkey (Alt-Space in my case), the search window popped up with last search terms already highlighted (with "remember last search" on), so that as soon as I started typing a new term could be entered. Now, if I enable "remember last search", the caret is at the end of last searched string and I have to delete it manually.
I think you have select_text_mode set to 2.
Please see above.

Here is the list of select text modes:
  • 0 = Do not change the text selection or move the caret.
  • 1 = Select all text and move the caret to the end. (Default)
  • 2 = Unselect all text and move the caret to the end.

select_text_mode was indeed = 2, changing to 1 solved the problem :)
2. Escape key doesn't close window
I have Escape (Global) as a shortcut for File | Close, but it only works in the Results List and not in the Search List.

Thank you for your help!

Please try restoring the keyboard options to their defaults.

Restored key defaults, reconfigured my Alt-Space hotkey and now all is working as expected :D

Many many thanks!
