Clear Search History - selective

Postby raw_toe » Sun Jan 14, 2018 3:08 pm

You know how you can highlight and clear specific entries in dropdowns on webpages? I'd like to be able to do that with search history, I don't always want to clear the whole thing.

thx!

It would be nice if the history was stored in the data folder - maybe as a text file.

It's in GuiItems.db3 So, it's possible to use an Sqlite application to hand edit it. I'd have to figure out how to permit a delete. I don't think this particular control lends itself to doing that.

Since SQLLite is already integrated in the app, would it be possible to put in a simple data grid interface to allow editing of db3 files? Can of worms I know.
