Quick Search filters list of files QuickSearchAutoFilter=0

Post by *sangahm » 2017-10-20, 14:59 UTC

IIRC, in past versions there was a config setting in the menus to allow the quick search to either filter out all non-matching files/folders, or just jump to the first directory with that letter.

I can't find that now, so I edited the wincmd.ini file

QuickSearchAutoFilter=0

Was that changed in a later build, or is my memory faulty?

Just press Ctrl+S when the quick search box is shown to turn this on/off.

And yes, it's QuickSearchAutoFilter=0:

0: Automatic quick search filter (Ctrl+S) disabled
1: Automatic quick search filter (Ctrl+S) enabled
-1:Like 0, but do not save state when closing TC (filter always disabled at startup)
2: Like 1, but do not save state either (filter always on when starting TC)

Ok, I get it now. I did try the Ctrl-S option (it was in the help file) but I was not reading it right as to what to do. And I like the -1 option - very useful.

Being a long time user (20+ years), I didn't realize how the Ctrl+S worked. Nice!

Thanks, this thread helped me fix my behavior back quickly. I press Ctlr+S after doing a quick search wondering what it does but I could not see what it does and forgot I pressed it. For a week now I could not understand why it is now filtering instead of jumping/searching.

Anyway wonderful feature the filter will be very useful from time to time and behavior is easily modified with Ctrl+S.

Shows you I have been a Commander user since early dos days and I keep discovering great new functionality, thanks for this thread.
