Small request about FARR 2 (last version)
« on: June 18, 2008, 03:46:50 AM »
I finally made the jump and upgraded yesterday from V1 to V2 !!!  I like a lot the new version, but I am missing one small thing : formerly, when the search results where displayed and when I pressed Enter, the top of the list item was launched.  Now it is the same behaviour *but* the entry is no longer highlighted, same thing when I press [1-9] to select one of the first nine entries, before it was highlighted.  I realize I was looking at this.  Is there a way to have this back ?

Thanks !

incidentally on my PC, Farr v2 does highlight before launching the top item. maybe you can try un-check the 2nd option (see pic) & see if that works for you.

Thanks for the hint.  It doesn't change on my current system at work.  Will try on my home PC tonight.  Maybe FARR2 is so much faster than V1 that the brief highlight is lost before the desired app starts ?

Merle,

so basically you are not saying you need it to functionally behave any differently, you justmiss the brief highlighting of the result before it is launched, is that right?  It's only the brief highlighting visual feedback that you are wanting back?

Exactly, this visual feedback helps me confirm I made the right selection.  In some cases, it has helped me to perform specific actions when I realized I had not chosen the right program (like waiting for the chosen program to load and not leave my seat...).  That would be wonderful if you could put it back (possibly as an option if other people don't like it).

Thanks !
