Well.. I haven't ever used this feature, so i don't know the last version it was working.
You can now set optional hotkeys for each alias. Pressing the hotkey will bring up FARR (if hidden) with the alias results shown (i.e. as a menu).
-farr's help file
If i understand this correctly, this feature isn't working right now.
I set a hotkey for a test alias, and when i pressed that hotkey, farr didn't come up. The hotkey wasn't even recognized by farr, as it was passed to the window below.
I was thinking this'd be a solution for this post
, since we could add an alias with a low rating, named "+\", which would only be used to bring up farr in folder search mode.
