The search/replace dialog should be persistent

Postby OldGrantonian » Fri Aug 10, 2018 6:21 am

It would be convenient if the search/replace dialog were persistent.

When using s/replace with a simple editor such as Notepad, it's possible to insert the cursor anywhere in the main text, do some work, and then continue using the dialog.

With CN, clicking anywhere outside the dialog exits the dialog.

Thanks

You're right, this is certainly non-standard behavior.
We thought that it would be convenient that the dialog gets out of your way once you find what
you have been looking for. But now I see that for your use case it can be annoying.
We'll fix that in the next update, thanks!

Good news - actually, it turns out no change is necessary!
Just change the "editor.find.autohide" parameter to 0 in cintanotes.settings (don't forget to exit CN before editing the file).

Also I made "0" to be the default value in the next version. However, it will only affect new installations of CN.
