Suggestion: Search - zoom to result always "centered"

Post by Peter2 » Mon Jul 01, 2019 3:48 pm

Standard behaviour:
- search a text
- click next - next - next
- it zooms to next - next - next

But:
If the "next search result" is already displayed on current page, there is no real "zoom to it". It is only selected and displayed.

That's OK for test-documents, where "next" is alway below the previous. But when you search in drawing, then "next result" can be somewhere on the screen - and in complicated drawings with a lot of content you have to search the search results with the finger on the screen ;-)

So pleae add an option like "display current search result always centered on the screen" - important fro drawings ..

Thanks

Hi Peter,

thanks fro the feedback. Are you using the current build? It should already be doing that:

Are you seeing something different? Perhaps I misunderstand what you are looking for here?

Paul

I have build 331 and this behaviour:

As described, if the second result is already on the page, it "jumps aside" and does not center the new result.

Hello Peter,

Thank you for the video showcasing the issue, I have created a formal feature request to offer an option than enables this.
RT#4835: Option to always center search results

I can say that the current handling is useful for a large number of users, but I agree that for drawings and other plans this is less than ideal. I unfortunately cannot make any guarantees about implementation or timelines at the moment however.

Kind regards,
