customizing default search item

Post by rra »

On XnViewMP 0.26 the default search item in the browser-mode is for filenames,
I mainly search for metadata, therefor I would like to have an option to
set ther search item to e.g. IPTC keywords.
I known I can search for these items using the tools dropdown-menu and then selecting add and so on.
This is cumbersome, especially if XnViewMP doesn't remember my last chosen items.
Is there some way to custimize the default search item ?

Hello,
For me it's here:

The last chosen items :
Tools\search\add>> \ the last criteria
(or maybe the history of the 10 last items)

and/or

Tools\search\add>>\IPTC\Keywords\ the last criteria
(or maybe the history of the 10 last IPTC Keywords typed)

But you can save the search

Yes, right, maybe is enough ?, but maybe to save the last search is a good idea too ???
