Aliases don't appear in History
« on: April 14, 2019, 11:51 AM »
I'm been using farr as a portable app for years--and love it, but I have one longstanding annoyance that I was hoping someone can help with. When I set up an alias (e.g. for 'capture' to  %APPDRIVE%\PortableApps\FSCapture\FSCapture.exe or to D:\PortableApps\FSCapture\FSCapture.exe ) and then use the alias, no entry for FSCapture.exe appears in the History list. The History list works as expected for non-aliased entries.

The following are enabled in History options (these are the defaults afaik):
-Add launched file to launch history
-Blank search shows files from launch history in initial results
-Ignore History Scores on Blank Display
-Keep track of search string history

Any ideas how to solve this?

Yeah, it's something people have asked for.. Let me reconsider it..

Until then, what you CAN do is type: historys
which will show all your past searches which *WILL* include alias executions
(you can also make a FARR hotkey for that)

OR hit Ctrl+UP arrow to scroll through previous searches.
