FR: Improve indication that Search Files/Folders is still running or has completed

#1 Post by Free4all » 25.05.2019, 18:36

Feature Request: Improve indication that Search Files/Folders is still running or has completed.

It can be difficult to tell when Search Files/Folders is running, versus when it has finished. This is especially true when searching for text within files, which by nature, is slow.

Can the UI be improved to make it more obvious that the Search has completed?

Thanks!

I'm not sure if it's enough for you, or it's just a workaround, but try this:

Menu > Options > Auto hide search parameters on search end.

Thanks Dreamer!

I'm going to give that a try as a workaround. I'm not sure yet how it will impact workflow. But it definitely lets me know when the search has completed.

I would still appreciate it if Marek makes it more obvious without having to use that option, but I greatly appreciate your tip! :)
