Entrian Source Search 1.7.8: Multiple tabs

Tuesday, May 2nd, 2017 by Richie Hindle

I’m very pleased to announce Entrian Source Search 1.7.8, which includes one new feature and a pile of bugfixes. Source Search now let you have multiple tabs, so you can keep one or more sets of search results open while performing more searches:


See the manual page for Multiple tabs for full details on tabs and how to use them.

Also in this release:

  • You no longer see duplicate results after case-only renames on filesystems with 8.3 filenames disabled.  Thanks, Alan.
  • Fixed a crash trying index a directory for which you don’t have read permission.  Thanks, Jools.
  • Files using Mac line endings are now indexed properly.  Thanks, Keith.
  • The “Unexpected IO Exception” dialog now works for the indexer as well as the searcher, so if the indexer hits a transient file system problem, you get a chance to retry.  Thanks, Eddie.
  • Fixed a crash when using the “Previous Hit” hotkey for a file: search.  Thanks, Sam.
  • Fixed a rendering glitch in the results list for long source lines beginning with tab characters. Thanks, Anders.
  • The settings file is no longer truncated if the disk is full when Source Search tries to write to it.  Thanks, Martin.
  • If you try to create an index, find that there’s already one of that name, and ask to recreate it, you no longer get a silly error telling you that the index already exists.  Thanks, Martin.
  • All of the controls in the crash dialog now render clearly in the High Contrast theme.  Thanks, Martin.
  • Fixed a rendering glitch in the results list when using the editor font on a High DPI display.  Thanks, Chris.

As always, this upgrade is available for free to all licensed users, and as a 30-individual-day trial for everyone else.  You can download it from the gallery or the download page.
