#642 3.26 Enable Search tool in toolbar (by default)

Ian Finlay

I could not find how to search via Menu's at all

I have seen references to the Edit menu, containing this,

But in 3.24, 3.26 I had to manually add the Search tool to the toolbar, and only after this did the edit menu provide triple the number of menu options (previously Find, Find Next ,...) were not visible options

    This is not a Bug but a Feature Request to have the Find Bar visible at all times.

    Password Safe remembers whether it was visible when it is closed and, if it was, will automatically show it again when restarted.

    Lastly, Find (Ctrl+F) is always in the Edit menu (certainly in V3.26 and later). Find Previous and Find Next are only in the menu if the Find bar is visible and a Find has been executed - it doesn't make sense to have them there if there are no current find matches to go to.

    We won't make the Find bar visible by default as a number of users do not want it taking up room in the display and it remembers if it was shown on restart.
