A running pull request with any 'small' fixes.
It initially started to fix #1353, but I've added various other things over time


Sometimes, if you used space to flip to the argument field (make sure said setting is enabled in command prefs) the 3rd pane wouldn't go to text mode. This fixes it.

Reproduce the problem:

Google search ␣ (space) type somthing ↩
reopen QS
hit ␣ (space) immediately. 3rd pane doesn't go to text mode (not always reproducible?)

"Save Command to File…" should only show folders the same way "Move To…" does. I can fix it, just not right now. Leaving this here as a reminder.

And maybe it should be say "to Folder". :-)


I see what you did there ;-)

It was so easy I couldn't resist, and just incase we all forgot I thought
I'd do it now.

I used the home folder as the default folder. Seemed like a reasonable
option to me

P.S. - I picked up a bug with this code. Something else to fix, I can do it but just not right now ;-)

If currentFolderPath is nil, [NSNull null] gets used instead, which throws an exception later on down the line:

OK, I've fixed that bug, but now I've found another:

  • Select an action that selects nil in the 3rd pane by default (say the 'append to...' action or the search for... action if your search clipboard is empty)
  • Leave the dObject as it is
  • change the aObject to another object that uses the 3rd pane by short circuiting (␣)
  • Note how the iObj isn't updated

Can't fix it right now

This was redundant. I saw whilst in the debugger that setting the action (done a few lines above) already calls this method.

The third pane for web searches isn't being "refreshed" as it should. As described on IRC, if you reinvoke the interface with a previous web search still showing, hitting ↩ runs the old search instead of going to text mode in the third pane. Also (probably the same bug), search text doesn't appear in the third pane. To reproduce:

  1. Bring up a web search
  2. Enter some text in the third pane
  3. Dismiss QS (or do the search - doesn't matter)
  4. Select some text in another application, then hit ⌘E
  5. Invoke QS

The text from the Find pasteboard should appear in the third pane, but it doesn't unless you change the dObject to something other than a web search, then back again.


hmm... I can't reproduce your 2nd problem, but if I reinvoke QS and press ↩ I see the 3rd pane isn't selected


git bisect shows 03d921f is the culprit. Expected really as its an 'optimisation' - in inverted commas ;-)
