    it's a bit slower than 2.02, based on the search speed displayed at the bottom it is not indexing (30ms) so it must be the display that takes a lot of time
    adding preview and saved searches in the layout is ok in some contexts but not in others where visual noise must be restrained so they would be better as an option, the simple layout before was much better for quick work

    clicking outside of search windows doesn't close it but instead it shift focus to other windows so ESC no longer closes it
    also this doesn't work

    You should do
    =50*3
    , start with
    =

    You can turn side panels on/off using
    F3
    and
    F4

    ESC should close the window if it is not docked, but clicking elsewhere will not close it anymore since the window is not opened as an auxiliary window anymore (this was requested by the designers)

    Nice about f3/f4 I'll get that habit right away.
    Ok so this is reducing the legal file name like upload_2021-2-8_20-51-10.png not that it's super realistic but that's not search's place to impose file name rules, don't you think?
    As we've already discussed last year, a preferred way of handling those queries is to start with an file-illegal character like : or ?
    Why is it not an auxiliary window anymore? Perhaps there is a new type of interaction that requires first click outside search window? I can't think of one. This new implementation obviously gets in the way of work since it breaks standards and transient rules (color picker is transient too) so unless there is benefit to the user ...
