is it possible to turn off this "Find as You Type" (FAYT) feature? instead, i would like to use Listary for the "Quick Switch" feature and "Favorites" menu.
I'm using Version 3.51.819, last but one. The Applications tab has these:
Application Settings: (only affect selected application in the list above)
[ ] Enable Listary for this application
[X] Track recent files and folders
But, even set like that, I don't think you can switch off FAYT without switching off the other features. I don't actually use Favorites inside Listary, but I use Total Commander as my file manager. Listary integrates well with TC (and several other file managers), understanding my TC favourites list. I tried my editor Notetab Pro with the Listary settings above, and asked Notetab to open a file with the standard WIndows File Open dialog. Alt-tabbing between TC and Notetab didn't
switch the File Open dialog to the folder TC was pointing to. You might contact the author to be sure, though.
