I am seeking a way to disable the following behavior:
When I do search in my EF library, say for “dog”, I get a returned list of documents with the word “dog” in them.
If I then open one of those search results which is a PDF, Skim (my default PDF viewer opens and displays the PDF
When Skim opens the PDF, it automatically picks up the search term/phrase I used to search for the document in EF.
This isn’t always such a bad thing, but it gets in my way more often than not. Typically I find myself searching for the document with one string and then search for a more specific or different string when I within the document itself.
Is it possible to prevent Skim from using and/or prevent EF from sending the EF search string?
I didn’t see anything I could set in Skim to prevent it and haven’t found a way yet in EF. Though, I did fine the esoteric setting “ClearSearchWhenChangingSources”, which, while not solving this problem, is something I like.
