"Hide on lost focus"-feature forgotten?
« on: March 30, 2008, 10:23:25 PM »
Hello,

in December last year CWuestefeld requested the "Hide on lost focus" feature (which is also used in Launchy).
Do you still plan to implement it?

Greetings

I hope it will be an option only! When I tried to test Launchy for a short time it was just this feature and its fuzzy search that put me off it very quickly. (I didn't intend to leave FARR, of course, I just wanted to know what Launchy is about.)

Another idea: For those who prefer the FARR search window to hide (so it's set in the preferences) a hotkey to make it sticky only until the next call would be quite useful.
So the behaviour would be like this:
normal: call FARR -> let FARR loose focus -> FARR goes away
alternative: call FARR -> hit special hotkey -> (let FARR loose focus -> FARR stays)* -> let FARR hide (e.g. ESC or launch an entry) -> normal case
The (...)* means: repeat (...) x times.
