8.0 Beta 1: *REALLY* miss the results filter tool!

Post by nurbles » Wed Jun 26, 2019 12:55 am

So far, 8.0 Beta 1 looks really nice with one BIG exception: The input field where we could type specific things to include or exclude from the search results being displayed is MISSING!

This was invaluable when unsure of the specific name used for an item as it allowed unwanted matches to be VERY quickly filtered out of the results.

PLEASE bring this functionality back in Beta 2! PLEASE!

Or, if I'm just totally blind, please tell me where to find it because I think I clicked all over the results window and looked through all of the settings without finding it. Thanks!

First thing I noticed was missing was the filter bar in the explorer and supersearch tabs. I'll have to go back to NL 7 because I use those tabs way too much to go without them.

it does appear to be missing yes, that is such a useful tool. Luckily I installed Newsleecher in a different directory, so I can go back to 7 while keeping 8 active at the same time to update. But 8 looks very promising, once it has the results filter sorted then I will move on to 8.

Agreed 100%. With Newsbin you do your search then you can filter what you do want from the results, by tying in the same search window. Unfortunately this does does not work in NL8.

It doesn't help that the new "Latest" feature can't take additional search filter terms.

::Deobfuscated-24H:: somestuff

for example, gives an error popup.

Please make putting the results filter into Beta 2 a priority!

Thanks.

I use the results filter all the time. Please bring it back in the next release.

Just wanted to add that I also miss it a lot! Using SuperSearch isn't fun at the moment. When I want to download a complete series, I search for "Series s10e" and get all downloads that start with that search term. That works great, I must add.

But then I want to filter episode 1 and normally I just type e01 in the filterbox... that's gone now, so it's a tedious task to find what I want and do it quickly at the same time!

Please bring it back soon! Shouldn't be that hard!

Filter functionality will be available soon as a part of the Search Filter Service which can be purchased as an addon service to the main application. Coming soon.

Seriously wish the missing features of local search and the features that have been broken/removed from local search but left in or in some cases improved on the SuperSearch would be fixed/restored and improved upon on for local search. - More details: http://www.newsleecher.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&p=127938#p127938

Went back to NL7, besides missing the result filter box, which is a very essential feature to me, I do not like the UI at all. It's non intuitive.
For decades my eyes are trained to recognize buttons in an instant.

Lots of users will like the clean look, I definitely don't. I like to see Tabs, buttons, check boxes, bullets, etc. They were invented for a reason, they serve a purpose. Besides Windows, I use other OSes, too.

So, please let me click on buttons, check boxes, tabs, instead of reading lots of useless text.

Yup, there's a wide empty space where the results filter search bar used to be, there's no excuse of having no space for reincluding the results filter tool in the next beta or so.

All the above. 8.0 beta looks nice but this filter is too useful to do without - back to NL7 for me
