FARR: Search box retains text on opening
« on: September 01, 2009, 09:00:36 AM »
Hi, when I start the find and run there is always text in the search box already and it starts to look for that.  I have to manually delete it sometimes there may be a lot of text before I can enter the search I am looking for.

Anyone enlighten me if I should be doing something or maybe change a setting etc? The text could be coming from the clipboard I use 101clips which I think is fantastic.

Any help appreciated, thanks  :D

Try going to options - settings - hotkeys. Double click on your hotkey, and then check the "set search text below" option and delete everything from the textbox below. That should clear the search string every time you call Farr.
