DONE? Tweak how fuzzy search results are presented

Post by pjj »

It would be really helpful if you could tweak the way fuzzy search works or, more specifically, how hits are sorted and what gets highlighted. Now it seems that the whole path is parsed character after character, which means that -- if you write down part of a filename and you have many files in your project -- the best hit is hidden down the hit list:

I am searching for "admin" here, but hits with this term in a filename are not presented at the top of the list, and I can't quickly see them, because letters in the pathname are highlighted instead. I guess the desired order would be this:
* whole hits in filenames
* whole hits in dirnames
* fuzzy hits in pathnames

so e.g.
D:\wwwJobs\uzaleznienia\subdomains\ankieta\admin\admin.php
D:\wwwJobs\uzaleznienia\subdomains\ankieta\admin\forms\edit-admin.php
D:\wwwJobs\uzaleznienia\subdomains\ankieta\admin\index.php
D:\wwwJobs\uzaleznienia\subdomains\ankieta\index.php
By the way, you may want to fix appropriate page in the on-line help: fussy → fuzzy 8)
