To everyone who thinks he needs this feature:
Please try the latest version for at least 3 days, and then reply here whether you really need it. Download link: http://www.listary.com/download/beta/ListaryBeta2332.exe
As you can see in the screenshot below, the latest version always shows search results from the current folder on top. If I change Listary to search only the current folder by default, the only change you can see is a smaller search result count number at the top right corner (maybe decreasing from 100+ to 30 because search results from other locations are no longer counted).
On the contrary, the drawback would be quite noticeable. When you don’t find what you need in the current folder, you have to move the cursor to the beginning and add a modifier to restart searching.
If you still insist that you need this change, please give me some real-life examples (e.g. with this change you can reduce keystrokes from 8 to 6 when finding a file on your disk).
