I've been trying to figure out how FARR determines the size of the result listing - maybe someone can help me out? From options I see 3 options:
1) normal results list - I think I understand this. Any regular parse result that is not a perfect alias match or a path in directory browse mode
2) extended result list - I'm not clear on the definition of this. Alias listings and die browse seem uneffected. Is the "+sall" suffix used to switch from regular to extended? Is there a hotkey for this?
3) max size to grow results - again, I'm not sure on this one. FARR respects my screen size and doesn't display more than I can handle. Does this just limit the number of "regular" search results (non-alias and non-dirlist)?

Can anyone help clarify this for me?

2) extended result list <-- this used to be for dir listing but i think now i use +sall automatically on dir listing so i'm not sure this is event used now.

3) as you say farr wont grow bigger than your screen size, but this value can tell it never to grow bigger than a certain value.  i should probably make this a pixel size, it would make more sense.

does there have to be a space before +sall, seems like it..

It is nice having a minimal UI but I think it would be good to have an easier way (for beginners/non-advanced especially) to access the rest of the list

a discreet arrow in the statusbar maybe? (although then you'd prob have to change/add to the statusbar text to ensure no confusion)

something like

[use arrow key to go to results                                                               further results V]
