Is is possible to disable the fade behavior on the predictive search popup? I know how to change the delay, but even if I set it to 1ms I still have to wait 3 seconds for it to fade away. Setting it to 0 or -1 errors out. On top of the time delay it’s really cheesy…
Preferred behavior would be that it show and stay put while typing, but disappear on tab, enter, or when something other than the predictive search window is clicked (the same way predictive search works in just about any other software ever).
The sysconfig settings should apply on re-logon if changed at the individual workstation, though I seem to recall it not taking effect consistently. I don’t install the AUTO shortcuts.
I messed with this for a few hours and then just turned off predictive search. The fade makes it useless, as it takes more time than clicking to use a quick search. It’s disappointing because predictive search works great in just about every other piece of software, including Sage which we migrated from, so it frustrates the users to not have it.
That is so disheartening to know that you just had to disable it completely! With the combined cost and capability of the software, this seemingly basic functionality should work without problem. I know, I said should.
Just an additional comment about searching… many people dont know that you can type the first portion of data, and press Ctrl-S, and the Search window is auto launched, and your value will be searched…
For example, in the Part screen, in the customer ID Field, you can type “ADD” Ctrl-S, and the search window, and you will see it search for “Addison”.
I wish they’d chosen a different default hotkey, because Ctrl+S is “save” in pretty much every Windows application. I set Ctrl+S as my global for save, and Ctrl+F for Search (find). But the search only works for the right Ctrl, not the left–by design?
