Wasted space in search results

Post by Timur Born »

Hello.

How can I remove this "sheet" icon from search results?

Hi Timur - can you please provide a little more context about where you are seeing this sheet icon, and which feature you are using for the search?

Many thanks,

I see the sheet icon in front of every single advanced search result line, regardless of what options I try. It seemingly is meant to indicate a search hit on a text page and can also show bookmark (and likely other) icons instead.

It wastes a lot of space due to:

- showing in front of every single page text result, even though this is rather granted as long as no other result/icon is shown.

- using an expansion arrow even while searching in single active documents only and unnecessarily using too much space for indentation.
Image

- being vertically centered to the search hit preview instead of being placed in the first line.

Here is what it could look like instead, wasting far less free screen estate:

Hello Timur Born,

Thanks for the suggestion! I have passed it along to the UI team leader for consideration.

Kind regards,
Stefan
