Hi mouser !

i have a small feature request, is it possible to have a "link" in the contextual menu of an alias (in the result list) to go to its edit dialog ?
It would be very very handy to slightly modify an existing alias...

Cheers, Nitrix

I have got another problem, FARR seem to have stopped search results in the history. It began between the version 2.0.60 and 2.0.68.
I think that this bug might have passed unnoted. It presists in V2.00.76. I'm noticing it because it's one of the features i most use in Farr. :)

2 newbish questions:

1) When I search for a term and say 6 results show up, pressing the number doesn't go to it, but instead gets typed.

2) How do I open 5 pre-defined URLs in tabs in a tabbed browser, say Opera by typing a single alias?

For the first question, alt+number will launch the app for that number. For the second one, you have to see if your browser has some switches to allow links to be able to open in a new tab.

opera seems to use -newpage

#1: what warbird said (OR you can use function keys OR you can configure FARR to launch on number key press OR you can use numpad).
#2: if you make an alias with the 5 urls, then you can type the alias and hit Ctrl+Alt+Enter to launch all.

If people are interested i could add a flag to each alias to let you say that these should all launch as a group by default.

This seems like a really good idea.  I am currently creating batch files and including them in the alias to allow me to launch a single program or the whole lot, but a switch would be easier and faster.

Could there be possibly an option to center FARR at the first start. Currently it is positioned anywhere on the screen, but there is no option to re-place it to ease handling.

Ok... I have the same problem. Noticed it after rebooting my computer (BSODs makes it compulsory...).
But even if I cleanly exit Farr, it will not remember it's position at first launch.
And, of course, after I position it, it will remember its spot for the subsequent triggering.... Until I need to exit and restart.

Small bug ? Never had that problem before v2.00.71 I  think.

i might try to install v2.00.76, maybe, and see...  But I shall try to figure out my BSOD problem first, though.

Mouser,

I have a shortcut on my desktop named 'SAP Logon'. In FARR, it shows up when I type 'SAP', but the moment I actually type the exact name 'SAP Logon', it doesn't show up. Is this the expected behavior? Shouldn't it show when am typing the exact shortcut name?

Here is a screencast of what am talking about:

wow that's really weird sri..  let's try to figure it out on irc rather than in this thread but it sure sounds like a bug; the SAP related alias you have sounds like it might be causing the problem.. try examining the alias or changing it and see if you can discover what is making the bug happen. definitely looks like a bug!

It certainly has to do w/ the alias. Once I disabled the 'sapmats' alias, FARR is behaving the way it should.

I'll catch you in IRC in the evening. (am at work now)

Hey mouser - Not sure if anyone has ever mentioned this before. But I just increased the number of results to display in the normal results list from 8 to 10 and I noticed that the Alt+# launch keys only go up to 9, leaving the last entry without a number. I think it would be nice if you were able to use 0-9 as well as possibly a Letter for anything past the first 10 entries. It also may be useful to have the launch key differentiated from the actual name a bit more in the display. I'm not sure if have a letter - program name will get confusing for people.

For example something like:
Code: [Select]
[0] Program 1
[1] Program 2
...

Thanks for the great program.

A minor addition but potentially quite useful (seeing as I just noticed that the alpha I am running is a bit behind the times)
How about a "Check for New Version" from the help menu

Nobody has that problem ? v2.00.76 and v2.00.71  behave the same.

A few issues here:

1. Running Vista Ultimate
2. @120 dpi
3. Problem #1 persists at lower dpi as well
4. Problem #2 goes away at the default 96dpi

Problem:

1. Generally, the status bar is not visible (120dpi) or half-visible (96dpi)
2. At higher dpi, a drop-down menu opens a few pixels away from the drop-down button -- as if detached

I have attached some screenshots that might better explain the situation:
Bug_1.jpg and bug_2.jpg show the detached daughter from the drop down box. Bug_3.jpg shows the non-existent status bar (note that the status bar was half-visible at 96dpi).

Interresting.

I uninstalled FARR completely, reinstalled the latest alpha, and now it remembers its position. Weird. It even seems a tad faster.

I'm crossing my fingers : maybe will my BSOD problems go away too... :-\

Morale de l'histoire : afterall, installing over previous versions might not be such a great idea...

By the way, in complete despair, I tried Enso (Humanized) and Launchy. Hmmmm.... Came back to Farr in 15min. I am not saying the other don't have potential... They're just not there yet  ;)
