Feature request: Filter recent document list

Post by christian kuhlmann » Mon Sep 15, 2014 12:42 pm

the recent document list is a very useful tool, especially since it shows thumbnails. However, it could be improved by providing a filter option that narrows down the list by entering a search string.
The reason to filter within this list and not search within the file system is speed: Searching the file system is generally a very slow operation (especially with network drives), but searching the recent list could be a lot faster.

Best regards,

Hi Chris,

Thanks for post and suggestion - I quite like this idea personally, but whether or not it's something that would be possible/practical for us to implement I can say without first talking to the Dev. Team. I'll put in a feature request for this, but do note that I cannot guarantee the implementation of the feature, only that it will be seriously evaluated.

If posting files to this forum, you must archive the files to a ZIP, RAR or 7z file or they will not be uploaded.
Thank you.

Best regards
