Please Help! Alias disappears
« on: August 13, 2008, 02:56:22 AM »
I am somehow confused. Maybe somebody can help me.
Look at the two screenshots. Why is my wetter_muc-alias gone in the second screenshot (after typing another t)? Why do three totally unrelated objects appear? Doesn't make sense to me.

Please look into the alias definition. Perhaps there is a regular expression, matching to "wet" but not "wett".
Furthermore you should experiment with the options "Stop search on exact alias match", "Stop search on regex alias match" and "Score non-contiguous matches".

that does seem strange.. there's usually a logical reason for these things though..

can you show use what your wetter_muc alias looks like?
if you disable the alias, does typing wett give you same 3 results?

Alias looks like this:
Group Alias Name: wetter_muc
Results: Wetter in M√ľnchen | http://www.wetteronl.../Bayern/Muenchen.htm

No Regular Expressions etc.

The three other results are from an alias I made that looked for regular Expression tt.
I just don't know why wetter_muc is hidden. I only reappears  when search text is "wetter_muc".

Search Behavior: Neither Stop on exact match or regular expression are checked nor Score Non-Contiguous matches.

Thanks for your help. I solved my problem by adding "^" to the tt-Alias. But it still seems a bug to me ...

As I said, please try experimenting with "Stop search on regex alias match"; this might be the cause here.

Thanks for your advice herojoker. But the problem is solved for me now. Still the semantics of having "Stop search on regex alias match" disabled doesn't correspond to the behavior of the program, or so it seems to me. I don't want it to stop after matching regex alias and go on showing other results. It works like this most of the time, but not in this case. Thus I believe its a point mouser might want to look into.
