#23 keep search result, add clear search button


When a search is done and I choose one item and click “go to the chosen” it locates it in the main window, and this is great feature, but then when it turns out that this is not the item I was looking for (which sometimes we can assess only by checking on which volume it is located and what are other files there, just to recall) I want to get back to search and locate the next item. And it appears that I need to repeat the search. I think it would be good if the search result could be kept in search window and be cleaned by another search or by closing search window manually, or I propose to add a button “clear search window”.
If you ever plan to add thumbnails that would be important, to search, locate, have a look at thumbnail and check next item on search result without repeating search.

    If did a search, you can click on a result item in list and on the mainwindow it jumps promptly to the node, you dont need to close the find window :)

    I already know that. Looks like you misinterpreted my intention. The point is that when I go to the node and it turns out it wasn't the item I was looking for I need to repeat the search. Instead I want cdcat to keep the search result until I type in another phrase for search or clear search result deliberately with clear button. This way when it turns out it wasn't what I was looking for I will return to search result and repeat "go to the chosen node" action until I find the right one.
