Search field: why is it cleared upon selection of a different folder in a library?

Hello,

The subject pretty much says it all. When a different folder is selected the search field is cleared. I am certain there is a good reason for this, but so far I have only seen the down side. What is the rationale behind it? I figure the issue could be alleviated by “auto completion” of previous searches à la web browser location fields…

Do not take this the wrong way. EagleFiler is awesome!

It’s the standard way that Mac search fields work, so that’s what most users expect. But it’s not what I personally prefer, so I added the ClearSearchWhenChangingSources esoteric preference.

That is indeed a good reason. Thanks for the solution, and for the speedy reply!

Martin
