Title: Improve Quick search
Post by: AnW on September 17, 2017, 00:06:25
I have the following options selected to be able to move between files and directories as fast as possible:

Please add one more option: Filter list of files/folders
With this option turned on the list of files/folders should be filtered similarly to ordinary filter available in the bottom right corner of the list (Ctrl + F). Why do I want this option? Because I use it Total Commander and I love it. Filter in MC is powerful but it requires to many keystrokes. Quick search is (as name suggests) quick but if you have hundreds of files it is annoying when selection bar jumps up and down when I press arrow keys to move between files.

You can also consider simple pattern matching (* and ?). When you add it you can remove "Search for text parts anywhere in the file/folder name" option because with patters we can simply start our quick search with * and it is equivalent.
