New feature request: Search the Quick Search Words list
« on: February 15, 2018, 07:22 AM »
I use the Quick Search Words functionality extensively and therefore my list of shortcuts is long.  When I have to edit an existing item, sometimes it's hard to find by eye scanning down the list.  It would be great to hit the Ctrl + F key and be able to search the list for a keyword.  If this exists with some other shortcut, sorry & let me know the shortcut.

Someone else has requested a sort feature for aliases.. would sorting be good enough?

Sorting would be an improvement and would get part of the way.  Looking at my search words and then replacement text, most of them are similar to each other, but some of them are completely different.  In the end, up to you how much time vs value it's worth.  FARR is still my #1 general tool.
