Feature Request v2 - toolbar and custom tools
« on: July 12, 2005, 10:05:01 PM »
i think i'd like to add a toolbar row to f&r, where the user can configure custom tools on small buttons, like you might configure a text editor,etc.
then you could launch it by clicking the button, or drag a result onto it.

it would just be a nice fast way to launch certain common utilities.
another good idea might be to let buttons be configured to trigger searches, or load config files.. yes i like that idea.

I wouldn't do this.
There is no need for a toolbar of selected applications.
I'm using Find & Run because I'm tired of all those toolbar apps. They are just too slow.
I'd like to see special text shortcuts to start special actions like triggering searches. "g Find +Run" for example could start a google earch for "Find +Run".
It would break the general philosophy of Find & Run to have to click on buttons for some actions.

the command behavior you suggest is definitely being added.
i am definitely hearing you guys who don't want added stuff on the interface - if we add a toolbar of custom buttons it will be optional.

OK ;) If I can put it off I'm happy.
