Ctrl+H - History manager - make 2 tabs

Post by Stamimail » Thu Apr 27, 2017 10:24 am

1 for Seacrh History
2 for Run Count

Wouldn't it be better to make just one csv named History.csv?

Showing the Run history like Search history could be useful, I'll consider making a UI/tab for it.

Not really possible as they refer to different things, eg search history has searches and search counts, whereas run history has filenames and run counts.

I don't know.

I meant that the History.cvs will have 6 columns or 3 columns in 2 sheets.

Maybe Ctrl+H should show the droped list of the triangle button (and not the dialog box).
Ctrl+Shift+H for the dialog box.

1. When I'm double clicking on the SearchBox, I get a different list than when I'm clicking the triangle button. Shouldn't it be the same?
2. The list is wide enough (at list on my system) and can include both Seacrh and Run history (to make 2 columns).

Double clicking and typing shows the search history with the highest search count.
Clicking on the drop down box shows the search history with the most recent searches.

The sort when double clicking and typing can be changed with the search_history_suggestion_sort ini option:
search_history_suggestion_sort=x
where x can be one of the following:
  • 0 Sort by search
  • 1 Sort by search count
  • 2 Sort by search date
For example, to change the double clicking and typing search history sort to search date, in Everything, type in the following search and press ENTER:
/search_history_suggestion_sort=2

To change the search history drop down sort:
  • In Everything, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the History tab on the left.
  • Change Sort all search history results by to the desired sort type.
  • Click OK.
Run history is different to search history.
Run history is the full path and file name history of manipulated results.
Search history is the history of the search text when a result is manipulated.
Run history will only be shown in the result list. I'll consider showing run history in the search history box.

I'm not sure it's right thing to combine the settings of "double clicking and typing".
I can understand why when "typing" it is set to the highest search count.

When "double clicking", I think the user is looking for quick access for one of these:
1. the most recent searches - to use again the search he used recently.
2. highest Run Count items - Path+File list - to manipulate (run) the most common folders/files used.
3. highest Search Count - to use a common Result Lists.

IMHO,
1. should be the default of "double clicking"
2. If can't be added to "double clicking", needs to find a way to let quick access to this list.
3. I think who is looking for common Result Lists, should use Bookmarks.
