Entrian Source Search 1.3.6: New hotkey: Activate without searching

Thursday, September 24th, 2009 by Richie Hindle

Entrian Source Search 1.3.6 comes with one enhancement and one bugfix:

  • There’s a new hotkey Shift+Alt+= which activates the Source Search window without doing a search.
  • A wildcard search that returns no hits now correctly says “No hits” rather than giving the misleading message “Please enter a search term as well as a filter”.

Entrian Source Search 1.3.4: Better searching, better sorting.

  • You can now filter on:
    • file:. or path:. to search just the file currently open in the Visual Studio editor
    • dir:. to search in (and under) the directory of current file
    • ext:. to search files with the same extension as the current file (thanks, Dan and Joe).
  • Sorting the results list by Folder name, Filename or Extension now only takes one click, not two (thanks, Dan):
    Sort triangles
  • Multiple +file filters act as ORs, not ANDs, so you can say +file:main.cpp +file:old_main.cpp (thanks, Anton).
  • Fixed a crash when you resized the Search window so small that no Hits could be shown (thanks, Andrew).
  • The timeout for incremental search is now two seconds rather than one (thanks, Dan).
  • Scrolling the results list with the scrollbar now gives the list the focus, so that the mouse wheel then works (thanks, Dan).
  • Improved the visual appearance of the results list column headings and the toolbar on Vista and Windows 7.
  • Fixed a painting glitch that could prevent the “Partial results” warning from showing and hiding itself at the right times.

Update: Many thanks to Anton for spotting a bug in file:. filtering, which could make Source Search crash if you mistyped it as file: – that’s why we’re now at 1.3.5 (blush).

The upgrade is – as always – free for licensed users, and there’s a free 30-individual-day trial for everybody else. Download from the usual place.
