      Description

      To search, you currently select a tree entry in ldap browser, then new -> search

      I find this not very intuitive to have to click new to get a search dialogue (I know, this is the Mac "everything is a document" spirit , for me, the collection of search results is useless, especially, as it is hard to re-use them (scroll down, find the last, change properties, double click).

      I suggest to add an additional context menu "Search" to the tree entries, which would immediately get a search dialog. If you allready had done this previously, you get the previous search settings.

      This menu entry should be right at the top. Also, there should be an entry "show last search result".


      search
      show last search result


      I think, this is what you mostly need, I never need or use the list of old searches.

        > Do you know the "Quick Search" feature [1]?

        No, I did not notice it, cause it is not in the tree's context menu

        The Quick search is a bit too quick, I'd rather have a search dialog to enter settings.

        I think CTRL-F could be better used to show a search dialog (Internet Explorer's search) instead of showing Quick Search (Firefox's).

        Anyway, having Quick Search in the context menu would be good.

        Do you know the "Quick Search" feature [1]?

        I think it almost does what you need:

        • Doesn't show up in the search history
        • You can re-open it with context menu -> Properties or Alt+Enter

        We can add a "Quick Search" menu item to the context menu that opens the Quick Search property page without seeking for it.

        WDYT?
