Reason for the "history list" upper limit ?
« on: November 29, 2008, 12:57:43 PM »
I'd like to have a longer history list (to mimic an index a bit more).
Is it possible to remove the 990 lines limit ?

Thanks!

I will try to fix this by saving the history list to a separate file -- which will also speed up loading+saving of config files.

Sweet! Any chance you could do the same for the search string history which is currently a little limited.

it would also help if the older history items are purged once the limit is reached so that the new items are inserted. i have my limit at 75 but it seems that once there are 75 items, new ones are not saved.

I also notice that the history list upper limit is still set at 990...
