"Stupid User Tricks": Multiple Search Windows

Dave shared this question 3 years ago
Answered

Pressing the keyboard shortcut Command-F (on a Mac, probably Control-F on Windows) activates the search panel. Once the search panel is open, the Find command is disabled in the menu, and Command-F has no effect.


This is to be expected.


Repeatedly clicking the magnifying-glass icon in the toolbar, however, will open up as many search panels as the user wants.


Is this the intended behavior? It doesn't seem to break anything: all of the opened search windows work correctly and independently.

Hi Dave,


It wasn't designed to work like this but it seems that it can be useful so I'm going to file an issue so that both opitions (cimmand-f and clicking on the magnifying glass) work.


We will let you know in which version the inconsistency is solved as soon as we know.


Best,


Marc

I'm glad I "broke" it in an interesting way ;-).
