Search Edit requests

Post by etc » Sat Feb 15, 2020 7:40 pm

1) Better word selection:
For example:
size:123456
size:123,456
Double click to select "123456" or "123,456".

2) A command to empty the search edit.

That can be configured:
Under MEnu:Tools > Options > Keyboard is a setting View | Go To | Home , currently configure to Alt-Home, but you can add a keyboard shortcut to your liking.

Pressing Alt-Home will empty the search edit filed and bring the cursor to this.

Yes, I also use that command.
But it's for changing the whole view, including sort, filter, search options, ...

Ah, missed that ..

A bookmark like this should get you close (unless I missed even more :) :
Pressing CTRl-Z will also remove the current searchquery.

Oh I forgot that a bookmark could "forget" anything.
And Home can "use last value" as well.

Thank you for reminding me.

(But currently bookmark UI does not accept Esc key for the keyboard shortcut.)

Just tested: could not get that working either. Now you are doomed :D

Though editing Bookmarks.csv will do:
"*",,,,,,,,,"",,"","",1,,27,

27 is the code for Esc key.

Clever!

I assume you removed the ESC keyboard shortcut that is currently bound to "File | Close (Global)" ?

@void ,
Will you consider 1) ?
Thank you.

3)
If Esc is a shortcut key,
and when the Filter dropdown is open,
Esc should close the dropdown first.

4)
I hope a shortcut key for a bookmark will also have the scope setting (Global / Search Edit / Result List).

I'll consider making the double click word select smarter for numbers.
If Esc is a shortcut key,
and when the Filter dropdown is open,
Esc should close the dropdown first.
Done for the next major release.
4)
I hope a shortcut key for a bookmark will also have the scope setting (Global / Search Edit / Result List).
I'll look into making this an option. For now, the shortcut keys are always global.

Thanks for the suggestions.
