Advanced search profile (suggestion)

Post by bernard meunier » Wed Aug 28, 2019 11:55 am

Hi,

I would like to know either or not it is possible to create "search profiles" so that to
facilitate searchs with different settings.

Let assume that for some search you want "Upper/lower case match search" + "Sub-folder search"
and other "not take care of upper/lower, neither partial/full word search" w/o Sub-folder search.

It would be really convenient being able to create search profiles that can be selected along the
actual start folder/actual document in advanced search pane.

That could be a nice enhancement (at least for me!).

Regards
Bernard

Hello Bernard,

Thank you for the feedback on our product productivity.

Currently, this is not possible, but we will make an internal Feature Request ticket,
and send it to our developers for consideration.



Regards.

The whole search needs an overhaul. It's still not possible to do different searches in different tabs. Once you change search options, search words or even search results in one tab it applies to all other tabs as well. The only way to workaround this is to use separate windows per document instead of tabs.

Hi,

That's is well understood. Topics was to suggest being able to create various search profiles
for ease of use. It's ok if selected apply to all tabs.

Thanks
Bernard

I absolutely support this suggestion. Often I find myself not using useful search options because of the necessary sub-menu clicking and then resetting for other searching. Still having the suggested feature active globally instead of per tab still would only be half as useful, because when you change it in one tab then all other tabs are affected, necessitating changing profiles back and forth.

Currently the only way to get consistent search (profile) behavior for separate documents is to use multiple windows instead of multiple tabs. That is why I stressed that the whole search (result) experience needs an overhaul.

Still the suggested feature would be very useful for those of us who do lots of different searches.

I can certainly see the value in having each tab be able to use it's own search criteria!

Even if that's not possible/practical, I think that saving searches for quick access/reuse would at least be an improvement.

FYI - the ticket for this request is RT#4903: Feature Request :: Editor :: Advanced search profile (suggestion) - it is for internal use, however any staff member can get status updates.
