Double-click to clear search

Postby danhotchkiss » Sat May 26, 2018 10:32 am

Just thought of this: why not double-click on a search (in the left menu or the Favorites bar) to clear it? That is my most frequent first step, and this shortcut would eliminate an awkward pause while I wait to see where the "Clear" button will end up after I switch to the search I want to use.

Try hitting Esc.
MK
X1 Search 8.5.2 - Build 6001si (64-bit)
Windows 10 Pro 64-bit | Windows 10 Home 32-bit
No, I have nothing to do with X1, just a user since 2004.

Right you are! I somehow missed that useful trick.

Thanks,

The tooltip hint when you hover over the Clear button now says, "Clear all search modifications." Adding "<Esc>" to this would help people to discover that the escape key is an alternative to the Clear button.

Same suggestion goes for all the other buttons that have keyboard alternatives.
