Hi and good day,

How to set max query to 100 instead of now 5000? 

Sometimes i confuse the start query button and I type the first letter and H.S. directly starts searching (good job!) but then I get 5000 hits for letter ”t” for example, and the spinning wheel.

Instead of ”timelight” etc.

So first of all I want to reduce the query to 100, but where (not in preferences).

All other advice in this respect is welcome!

Hi!

You can set the limit at the bottom left of the HoudahSpot window.

Once done, select Save As Default from the File menu. You current setup will be used as default for new windows.

Phantastic!

And how could I not have seen that!!


Now as I have several templates, can I set this limit (100) to all my templates at the same time somehow?

You will have to "open" each template and re-save with the same name.

Hi and good day,

Additionally, how can I set the default DEFAULT limit for search results for the DEFAULT search window ⌘ - N, i.e. not a template?

Maybe from the Terminal?


PS: I rarely need 5000 hits, I'd like to set 20 or so.

Hi!

You can customize the default search using File > Save as Default.

Set up a search with criteria, search attributes, locations, limit, column, etc. Then select File > Save as Default from the menu.
You can revert to factory settings in HoudahSpot > Preferences > General.

I.e. to set the default limit to 20: open a new window, set the limit to 20 and Save as Default.

Best,
