Adress bar selection

Post by nostra » Mon Jan 07, 2013 12:29 pm

I missing this option (Screenshot is from version 1.2.1.452)

I think it makes little sense if the "address bar" always everything is pre-labeled, thus one always has to click the mouse or the right arrow key press cancel to the mark, when forget this and you typing search term, then deleted of course there entered path and you do a system-wide search, although you really only want to search in a specific folder.

The option is disabled in the picture, there is nothing pre-marked and the cursor is just at the end of the "Address bar" incl space before, so that you can immediately enter the search term.

Only option I see at the moment would be to deselect: Options | Select search on mouse clip.
Now that doesn't position the cursor at the end (unless you clicked there), but it then also no longer selects the entire existing text.

I have added this option back as an ini setting for the next release of "Everything":

Do nothing:

Code: Select all

select_text_mode=0
Select All:

Code: Select all

select_text_mode=1
Move caret to end:

Code: Select all

select_text_mode=2
