Feature requests - checklist

Postby pgk » Sun Aug 17, 2008 9:05 am

Just to keep this list easily accessible, I've copied this form an earlier post (http://forums.x1.com/viewtopic.php?p=11746) in which it was buried. The outcome of the discussion was that Tod was going to go through several feature requests that had been made in the forums. A few have been answered, but there are quite a few more to go. Answers are marked in blue, solutions in green. -pgk

Renaming of the 'more indexing options' button
Implemented in V6.5

Request for 'back' and 'forward' buttons to access search history
Search history implemented in V6.5

Vista x64 compatible version
Not actively being developed, but V6.2.3 appears to work

Search substrings only in filenames (and path?)
http://forums.x1.com/viewtopic.php?p=11253 (+links to other posts)
Answer: difficult, will probably not happen.
My suggestion: install Locate32, and set it up for filename index only.

Progress bar for 'Optimizing index' requested:
Answer: no, we sped up the process instead

Request for a CPU throttle / max CPU usage
No answer

Index Outlook Flag info, including color
No answer

Pause indexing button (X1 answered, but not implemented?)

Do not reset selection to top when deleting a result

Addition of a 'do not ask again' option in recurring dialogs

Add image PDF scanning as option

X1 system tray and icon suggestions; [Thread LOCKED]

Option to turn off 'as you type' searching
No news in over two years

Index Outlook Journal and Notes items

A few requests summarized in one post:

I tried to open the link http://forums.x1.com/viewtopic.php?p=10281 but I get You are not authorised to read this forum.

My comment to this is my computer is I/O bound and not CPU bound. I have four cores with hyperthreading and 6GB of memory. However, with the programs that I use, I find the limiting factor is the throughput of the hard drive (yes I know there are good performing SSDs). In fact, using the full I/O capacity of my computer has greater (by observation) impact on performance than full CPU usage as the CPU always seems to keep up.

If I was to throttle, I would limit the I/O throughput and not the CPU usage.

Hmm.. same problem for me. Maybe they closed that section, I think it was a pretty old request. Either way, interesting suggestion. Managing IO should probably be done 'behind the scenes', not as a user option.

Closed for new messages, as far as I can see. But I can't see why people can't get in there.

Try "Search Forums with X1"?
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.
