request: allow FARR searches with options open
« on: January 21, 2015, 07:24:53 AM »
While the FARR options window is open FARR search is disabled. Is that necessary? Could it be worked around? When creating more advanced aliases it is handy to search for files with FARR. But to do so one has to exit/reopen the options inbetween.

I'm trying to remember if I did it for a real reason or just to avoid confusing the user.
My memory is something like this: Until you close the options, any changes you make to aliases won't have any effect.
So I probably disabled searching just to avoid the user getting confused about this behavior, and to make sure the options weren't left open on screen behind some other window..

Ok, makes sense in a way. And I discovered a workaround anyhow: we can edit myaliases.alias in notepad while FARR runs and then apply the saved changes by typing the "rplugins" command or restarting FARR. Of course I immediately made an alias for quick opening of myaliases in notepad.  :D
