Filter being set incorrectly on New Window

Filter being set incorrectly on New Window ?

Something odd is going on?

Perhaps it is that the filter is being set from the last opened window, such that once you close that window, & are back in a prior window, a New Window will set Filter to the (now) closed window rather then reflecting the status of the window it was opened from.


Window #. / Filter:

-> Start Everything
1.Everything
-> open New Window
-> set Filter: Video
2.Video
-> open New Window
-> set Filter: Document
3.Document
close 3.
revert to 2.
open New Window

Result: Filter is set to Document. You would expect it to be set to Video.

Current behavior is different, & wrong IMO, from version 1.3.
(All Home settings are at their defaults.)

This is the expected behavior with Everything 1.4.
New search windows no longer inherit the current search window settings, instead they use the "Home" settings.
I'll review what Everything thinks is the last value for the "home" settings as these values could be inherited.
Currently, the use last value is the value when the last search window was closed.

Try setting new_inherit to 1 in your Everything.ini for the old behavior:

Code: Select all

new_inherit=1
