Instead of selecting the matched element when searching within the Inspector panel, the match should only be highlighted like it's done in other panels with search capability. Sebastian
One of the important features of the search tool in the inspector is, in fact, to quickly navigate to a node, so if you only highlight but don't select, then that feature is gone. Why would you not want to select elements when searching? (ccing Brian who's been working on the search tool recently).
(In reply to Patrick Brosset [:pbrosset] [:pbro] from comment #1) > Why would you not want to select elements when searching? In the case you want to keep the existing selection but just search for another element e.g. for comparison or if you just want to search by text. Or you only want to select the right element. E.g. you search for class 'test', several elements within your page match it, though you only want to select the last one. This would have the advantage that the subtree containing the previous match could be closed again. > One of the important features of the search tool in the inspector is, in > fact, to quickly navigate to a node, so if you only highlight but don't > select, then that feature is gone. I know. This would need to be reached differently then, e.g. by an additional shortcut like Ctrl+Enter or something. Sebastian
