Can I close a tab?

Postby shalom2005 » Mon Dec 19, 2011 2:05 pm

Hello

I like the improvements - especially the bookmark history.

Just a few thoughts:

1) I don't use the Explorer or Repair & Extract Tabs, can these be closed? (I think in a previous version you could close unwanted tabs)

2) I'd still like a wider Super Search filter box - why can't it be dragged to the size I want (or at least double what it currently is?)

Can we also have an update on the Supersearch backend server upgrade, will this get us to 1150 days?

Many thanks
Best Regards

Search button rearrangement

Postby kublai » Mon Dec 19, 2011 5:04 pm

The new placement of the search button in the supersearch tab is kind of awakard. Should be back on the right hand side.

Search

Postby shalom2005 » Mon Dec 19, 2011 5:11 pm

Has the multiple tabbing gone from SuperSearch (Control T not working?)

(I solved the other query I had regarding closing tabs not needed)

And some other questions:

Are there any plans to backfill the missing headers that seem to be occurring quite often especially for very active groups (ex a.b.boneless, a.b.multimedia, a.b.tv, a.b.hdtv, etc)?
Are there any plans to restore the missing search functions to local searching that still work on SuperSearch since the holes across various dates/times in SS means having local headers is still required for complete searches (or use of outside nzb sites)? RE: http://www.newsleecher.com/forum/viewto ... &t=#105749

Are there any plans to fix the modal dialog that pops up when loading a group or doing group cleanups or preparing groups for browsing that puts that little window in front of all other windows? RE (not best name for the topic): http://www.newsleecher.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=105747

Currently at work so I can't test b11 until tonight, so if any of the above are fixed feel free to give me a swift 'Boot to the head' and let me know.

I like the GUI changes (Been using NewsLeecher for many years....)

The latest beta (11) seems to have "reset" the fonts....There is now a lot of space between each row. All beta's up to this point have preserved my compact setting.

Is this a new setting? I compared all advance nerdy tweaks with another computer that has the last beta on it...and I can't figure out the setting that causes this (i think it's "row spacing"). Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Keep up the great work!

Buggiest b to date

Postby JMark » Tue Dec 20, 2011 1:09 am

Multiple crashes when trying to delete headers (CTRL+Shift_DEL.) Was forced to go back to b10 within 10 min.s of use.

Worst build to date. but hey! We have a bunch of cute new features while not resolving the old bugs.

Keen!

How can I download beta v10?

Postby bedub1 » Tue Dec 20, 2011 4:30 am

I use every beta as soon as it's released. Beta V10 was a Release Candidate. Now it's gone through a major change. I don't like it. Wait for v6 for it, and release a good stable version now. Finish off what you have started please, before moving on with other major changes. When you fine tune what you have you end up with Windows XP. When you move on to the next thing you end up with Windows Vista.

Where can I download v5 beta 10?

SuperSearch

Postby _hellonearth_ » Tue Dec 20, 2011 6:34 am

Super Search options aren't saved, like watchdog and number of days to search.
