If I understand you correctly, I think that what you are suggesting would create some confusion; because those searches would not be a part of the files themselves (e.g., sync something across computers and sending the file to someone else), but a setting on the program itself. Also, that option would by design create universal searches. Having that as a metadata (extra information that is part of the taskpaper files), would allow us to just add certain search queries to certain documents. [/quote]
Perhaps I have not understood Jessie’s OP? Embedded search to me means click on a tag and it performs an automatic (embedded) search. If this is about searches specific to a document vs searches that are global vs collaborative (shared) documents then those are all interesting questions. As for me I use it one document at a time and I do not share documents of this nature. When I do collaborate I most often use Word. Not many people I collaborate with use Macs and AFAIK TaskPaper is Mac only.
When I put in a saved search (“@seaerch …”) then it is specific to that document and boilerplate as many searches do of course repeat often. I can and probably will put those boilerplate search strings in a typinator expansion.
There are three areas which now appear on the sidebar as of the beta; Projects, Searches, and Tags. There is a fourth area, Home, at the top. If Jessie was able to put into preferences a way to show or hide these three items in the sidebar - at the same time enabling or disabling them, one would always have to be left on by default but perhaps the user could choose which one, then that might help him in his decision to remove embedded searches.
If you click off [ (x) Projects, (x) Searches, ( ) Tags ] in preferences, Tags doesn’t show in the sidebar and there are no embedded searches with tags for (any) document until you turn it on again.
Remembering preferences by document vs globally is another question but as I am reading this we are talking about a global preference applied to all documents.
