Multiple clicks in Mac search box delete notebook selection


Recommended Posts

A.  Here is the scenario, that works OK via the browser:

--you select a specific notebook, on the left column.

--you type in multiple words in the search box, and the search is done.

--you then need to change and redo the search, so you triple-click in the search box, which selects all the words, and you enter a new search, which is done fine, within the selected notebook.

B.  Unfortunately, this does not work the same way on the Mac implementation:

--when you select a notebook, it is inserted at the front of the search box.

--you can type multiple words and do a search.

--but if you want to re-edit the search, you triple-click on the text, which selects all the words AND THE NOTEBOOK SELECTION.

--when you type a new search it replaces the old text AND THE NOTEBOOK SELECTION, so the revised search is performed across all notebooks, not in the notebook you selected.

C.  Possible change:  have triple-click in the search box only select the text, and not also select the notebook specification.  If you need to change notebooks, explicitly delete notebook selection.

The search box can contain various parameters; Notebook, Tags, Text, Dates ...
This would be the notebook:aaaaaa parameter

It seems logical that  "clear search box" deletes all the parameters in the search box.
Why is the notebook parameter special?
