Improve Search Results (Rapid)

Postby Will Fastie » Thu Jul 06, 2017 3:00 pm

When Find All is chosen in a search, a list of results (clickable links) is returned. However, editing the file causes the results links to go bad. Clicking on a bad link takes the user to the vicinity of the found item but if a lot of editing has been done the distance between the link's pointer and the actual found item could be large.

Two better solutions:
  • Create internal (invisible) bookmarks for the find locations that are independent of the line/column positions and can thus be found with precision.
  • While editing, automatically update the search results to maintain the accuracy of the position information.

Thanks for the suggestion. I'll add it to the list but I suspect this might be tricky to implement for technical reasons. We'll take a look and decide.
