[Search] Keyboard shortcut to search All

Postby orsonk » Wed Jul 15, 2015 5:27 pm

Maybe there is a keyboard shortcut for this, but I haven't found it. I often leave CN with a tag selected and often a text string in the search box. Ctrl+F is good for taking me immediately to the search box, but I still have to press ESC (once or twice, depending) to move to "All" on the left.

So many of my searches start with All. I'd love to have a single keyboard shortcut to reset the search to All and an empty search box.

Hi Orson,

you can tweak CintaNotes with the following settings:

filters.autoreset.keepeditednotevisible = 0
filters.reset.multistep = 0
filters.reset.onctrlf.enabled = 1
filters.reset.onescape.enabled = 0
filters.reset.onnewsearch.enabled = 0

These are the settings i use personally. For the details on each you should try the various effects, but i am sure it does handle your request.

Thanks. Yes, I've been playing around and I think I've found the optimal settings for my needs.

Thomas thanks for helping out!
Probably time to think about pulling some of these settings up to the UI..

I agree. It's about time. I have checked my settings and suggest a new option "Multistep Reset". This is the current default, but you might want to consider to turn it off for new installations.

Affected settings:

filters.reset.multistep = 0
filters.reset.onctrlf.enabled = 1
filters.reset.onescape.enabled = 0
filters.reset.onnewsearch.enabled = 0
app.mainframe.minimizeonenter = 1
app.mainframe.minimizeonescape = 1
app.mainframe.minimizeonescape.immediate = 1

Basically these settings change the behaviour, so that ESC will always exit CintaNotes right away. No reset on the search settings. To reset search, one must explicitly press Ctrl+F.

I'm still not sure that "Multistep reset" should turn on cleaning of search text on Ctrl+F.
I suspect this could make users confused, don't you think?

Imo, the settings offer a different usage scenario. Without Ctrl+F you miss the ability to reset your search instantly. Also it is still possible to press TAB to move from the notes list to the search box, without resetting search.

Regarding confusion: The settings should apply for new users only. So there should not be any confusion, right? Imo, it makes things clearer, because you have a dedicated way to reset your search.

Well, I guess you're right, however these are two separate aspects: behavior on Esc key press ("multi-step reset") and behavior on Ctrl+F press ("reset search on Ctrl+F"). I think it would be better to keep two separate options here.

Great! I'll put it into the pipeline for one of the next versions. Can't promise it will be in the next update though.
We hope to finally bring file attachments to life and everything else except crash-and-burn bugs is de-prioritized.
