MP Search: Insufficient feedback in the browser

Post by JohnFredC »

Tools->Search works great: Named searches are very useful and the responsiveness is surprisingly very fast.

However, after clicking the "View..." button in the results dialog, although the browser thumbs immediately show the "found" files, there is no other indication in the browser of what the files represent, or how the user got to them.

There needs to be some sort of indication of what search has been applied. Perhaps a text message in the status bar and a symbol in the mini-toolbar?

Something like:

Search "Embed name of active search here" is active

or

Search "Embed active search parameter list here" is active

???

Or simply "<Search results>" as in the Windows version.

More Search issues.

+1 yes, simply "<Search results>" as in the Windows version and the displayed result search into a new window (a new tab).

Well.. that sounds like a "multiple-browser" approach to me! Support ++

Yes, this behavior should be by default in XnViewMP (with an option to disable or enable it) - IMHO

OK, but only if using tabs.
