The "Find Action" window is really useful. But I think it could be even more so if the matching was more flexible.

If I type "export pdf" or "pdf export" I get no hits because the command ist "Export note as PDF".

Currently it simply searches for the text in all action names and tooltips in the menu..

  • the Find action dialog now searches for every entered word (for #1007)
    • all menu items that have one of the words in them will be shown

I have missed your emails from two days ago.

I just tested and I very much prefer this new version over the old one. I think it's much more useful Thank you very much.

If I'm petty there are two things that are not perfect. But I don't think that they are really relevant in real life and probably not worth your time.

  • If I enter a space after a word this again shows all possible matches it's no longer narrowed to the first word I typed in
  • In at least one case I got hits for a word that is definitly not in the options.
