ctrl+f to search on torrents
« on: September 12, 2017, 03:27:34 pm »
This might be one of those niche features, but honestly I just never use the top toolbar, I find that is a waste of space, but sometimes I do need to search for torrents and well a search feature makes it easier.

Maybe a key to toggle top toolbar? or smaller window for search only?

Uhm... There is a search bar on top, and CTRL+F activates that...
What do you mean exactly? (maybe it's just a bit early for me)

There is no search bar if you disabled it
view > top toolbar
Using ctrl+f does not bring it up.

Basically, what I am asking is for a feature like ctrl+f on browsers where it only appears when you use the keybind, that'll probably make more sense?

Ah I see, so basically auto-hide search bar.
Well if someone is really bored I guess it could be implemented.

Or what if the search + lock would be simply moved to the bar where the tabs are placed as well?
(Looks good on paper, but it may not be as simple to implement in Qt.)

Nevertheless, please make a ticket on Github.
