Improve Find-Focus behaviour to autoclose

Post by AbteriX »

Is it possible to "auto close" the Find-Dialog ?

It's a good thing that the find dialog stays open, but...

Little "interferingly" smts
...often i want simple to "focus" the file i have found again
and than the find dialog could be closed in that case at the same time.

If i could hold down the Ctrl-key (or Shift or Alt or...)
while i click on [Focus]
and the find dialog would focus the highlighted file
AND close the dialog for me
would be fine.

What do you think?
Is this an improvement?
Will that be implemented?

Autoclose for find-window

Post by KNUT »

Sometimes an "auto-close" would be nice :D
(instead of having some unused find-windows in the task bar :? )
Kind regards, KNUT

Want to ask too for option in Find dialog "Close Find window on Focus".
My deepest apologies for my awful English.

Yep, that would be a nice impovement. I like the idea of a modifier key. But why not make it also work with View, Edit, Delete and so on?
<modifier key>+<click icon> should auto close the find window, regardless what you click.
