Search dialog: "Stop" instead of "Abort"

Postby helmut » Thu Mar 30, 2017 8:43 pm

Currently, when searching for files (Browser: Tools » Search...) you can press "Abort" button to abort the search. The search will abort and the results found so far are deleted.

Instead of the "Abort" button I'd suggest to have a "Stop" button. When pressing the "Stop" button the search is stopped and the search results found so far are shown as result.

The user can perform a search and if he/she sees the wanted item in the search results found so far, he/she can stop the search and work with the found items.

Regarding the "Abort" button, it's not focused now, so if it will be changed to "Stop", I suggest to also focus this button.
