Hi Mouser,

i think it'd be great if we could have a new keyword modifier to switch from small icons display to big icons display

for instance :
when you have an alias with few results (let's say the windows management alias of jgpaiva)

you could set up a "super" alias using a dosearch command :
dosearch WindowManagement +showbigicons

or for a alias with lots of results (let's say one that finds mp3...)
dosearch +folder_mp3 +open_in_winamp +mp3... +showsmallicons

i would be very nice ! and makes FARR even sexier  cheesy

Keep up the good work !
Nitrix

"dosearch using keyword modifiers" really makes FARR unique  Kiss

farr will on its own switch from large to small if there are too many to show in large mode, providing you have that option selected.

yes, it is already great as it is...

but i thought a keyboard modifier would make the experience more consistent, so that for one alias it does not switch from one to the other depending on the number of results...

i personnaly use the small icon mode all the time

but i would love to be able to specify the use of the big icons display for actions

it would visually differentiate search results from actions

Anyway this is already great as it it Wink
Cheers, Nitrix
