Show Search Filter in Title Bar

Post by zinklog »

Hello thanks for this great tool.
It happens often that I get scared and find nothing on a common search only to realize a bit later I had set everything to search only images earlier in the day.
It would be a great QoL if everything shows what it is searching for (audio, images, document) on the title bar so it's obvious at a glance.

In that regard, I've been meaning to post:
Tabs show
<search> - {Filter} [in effect], (or {filter} if search="")
is there a way (pref) to NOT show {filter} [in a Tab]?

(am i sure i do not want it to show ?)

The easiest way would be to check the statusbar. The active filter will be shown here (if not the Everything filter).
(most important info will be shown in the statusbar).


You can add the active filter to the statusbar yourself, using the window_title_format setting.

There's no option in Everything 1.4 to show the active filter in the title bar.

Everything 1.5 will show the active filter in the title bar by default and can be customized with window_title_format.

Thanks for bringing this to my attention therube,

I will add an advanced setting to customize this tab title text.
(It's currently hard coded)

Everything 1.5.0.1372a adds support for customizing the tab title.

To change the tab title format:
  • In Everything 1.5, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the Advanced tab on the left.
  • To the right of Show settings containing, search for:
    tab title
  • Select: tabs_title_format
  • Set the value to a custom title format.
    The default is:
    <TEXTJOIN:" - ",TRUE,$s,$a,$d>
  • Click OK.


To show the search only in the tab title:
  • In Everything 1.5, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the Advanced tab on the left.
  • To the right of Show settings containing, search for:
    tab title
  • Select: tabs_title_format
  • Set the value to: $s
  • Click OK.

Would there be any way to also have per tab titling, so that different tabs have different formulae? Most of my tab usage would benefit from this since my tabs have specific roles.

I'm thinking you could enter it using a command/search switch tab_title_format ('tab' in the singular) and it would be disposed of with tab closure.

Cheers, David

There's currently no option for per tab titling.

I will consider an option to do this, or to 'label' tabs.

Thank you for the suggestion.

If using Bookmarks with tabs, could the tab Title be an option in Bookmark settings?

Yes.
Ideally, tab-labels will use the bookmark name when opened.
Thank you for the suggestion.

For now, the tab title will show: search - filter - directory
