@levelbest. The way to do this is to save searches that deserve to be saved as separate files (they could be saved as templates also because the distinction between files and templates is small). Make 1 search a template for searches and the others your ordinary files. See attachments. Further, you can easily changes files queries, give titles to them through comments, and see what tags you have. To my mind much easier and much better than Leap. And, yes, agree with you about Leap.
*Pierre: "I am always exploring new ideas to improve HoudahSpot. I am currently considering tabs and a sidebar. The sidebar would be similar to the current Tray window." I would be strongly against a sidebar unless it were optional. I would like all of the screen I can get to display comments and tags (see my attachments). If you take away space from me, I would be harder to use.
Among suggestions that would be helpful to me would be 1) a click box to switch between displaying the query frame and not displaying it; 2) the ability to switch by keys or boxes from various displays. For example, for some display I would like room to see the full comment. But I would also some time like to which to see all of the tags associated with the file. To do this now I have to resize.
I love this program. It makes it possible for me to do my work as no other program can do. Thanks.
