It would be nice if new hyper searches just added a new results tree to the hyper search window instead of wiping out the previous search results.

This will be extremely counter-intuitive. How about just
using a regexp to catch all matches at once instead?

It doesn't seem to be counter intuitive in JBuilder or
A regexp won't work if I'm searching for two entirely
different things. A lot of times I do a search so I can
find all uses of something and change it. Invariably, I
find some other form of what I was looking for or the
change I'm making requires me to change something
completely different. In these cases, I want to perform
another search without losing my original results. Having
all the search results in one window allows me to see all
the items I need to consider when making the changes and
gives me a convenient 'todo' list.
Another case where a regexp won't work is when I have to
search two different directory structures for the same
thing. For example, the other day I needed to search my
Java source tree and two different web app directories.
Sure I could just search my whole hard drive but why should
I search 12G of data when I'm only interested in 5M of
data. I've also found that searching too large of a
directory structure, about 4G, results in out of memory
errors (with the default 32M heap).
Furthermore, regexp are great but I'm just learning to use
them. Sometimes, it's much more productive to do two
simple searches instead of spending 5 minutes trying to
write a regexp. Maybe I'll have better luck with the new
regexp version and the bug fixes.
Thanks for your time, Nathan.
