KatePart Search Bar

How to use this page

  • Please append "// ~~~" when adding items or commenting so we can see who said what later easily. Thanks! // sping

Usability issues and improvement ideas

Incremetal search bar

  • Do we need a clear button for the search pattern line edit? (#161415) // sping

Power search and replace bar

  • Bar is too wide and makes window grow on open (#159954, Mail by Chusslove Illich) // sping
  • Bar is quite high // sping
  • Is switching modes (e.g. "Plain Text" to "Whole words") easy enough? // sping
  • Are the "Add..." buttons used at all? Remove or move into context menue? // sping
  • Checkboxes: How often are they toggled? The state of which does the user need to see? // sping
  • "Use Placeholders" - better name? // sping
  • Add option for selecting match or just highlighting? (#130396) // sping
  • Mode combo box and "Add..." button next to each other as of now set a rather high minimal width for the search pattern line edit above // sping
  • Number of replacements made is not shown anywhere // sping
  • Tab-Order of the replace bar --> I think the order should be: 1. Find, 2. Replace, 3. ... same as now // 93.83.106.50 mat69

Both editions

  • Remove From cursor option and make enabled default? // sping
  • "Reached buttom, continue from top" indication spans two lines which also grows/shrinks the height of the bar (#168687, #170279) // sping
