Search criteria clears when changing source types

Postby pete » Wed Jan 25, 2017 7:56 pm

Hello,

One thing that annoys me a bit about searching is that it gets cleared when you change the source type.
For example, I might have it on emails initially and type in what I'm searching in the top edit box. I then realize I really wanted to search documents and then click that but the search box cleared and I need to type it in again.
I've tried using the "everything" type to overcome this issue but then the columns aren't the same for email (eg Subject) compared to documents etc. So then you need to muck around with the columns.
If the application didn't clear the search when changing the source type I think the usability would be much better.

Regards,
Peter.

Not sure how you are changing between searches, how you "change the source type", but holding down Shift when you move between them can carry over the search.

It works easiest if you have searches on the Favorites bar. Set up your search, the Shift + click between them.

No, I have nothing to do with X1, just a user since 2004.
