When a (saved search on the sidebar) search finds an item, it does not auto-expand the item. When a “Go To Anything” search finds the same item, it expands it after finding it.
Example, I have an entry for things I set as goals for the day. This may overlap with actual goals, the point here is to have a free-form list similar to what I like to write out in a notebook.
I have a sidebar search that uses the search term “Daily Free Form Goal and Task List:”. This finds the list, and the list is always contracted. That is, none of the tasks under this are shown.
I also created a quick macro in Keyboard Maestro that uses “Go To Anything” with the term “Daily Free Form Goal and Task List:”. This search finds the same list, always expanded. That is, it is how I would like to see it with all of the tasks showing after I perform the search.
I am posting to ask if there is some way to get the same behavior from a sidebar search as I get in a “Go To Anything” search.
Added: I am also saying that in some instances I do not want the results of a sidebar search to be expanded. The current behavior is perfect the way it is. But in other instances I would like to see it do what I have here suggested.
Perhaps if Jessie has put this in as default sidebar search behavior he might consider adding a tick mark in the menu dialog for editing the search. Check your preference if search results expand or do not expand.
