History Settings

Top  Previous  Next


History settings control which information Agent Ransack remembers about previous searches.




To clear the current history click the 'Clear History...' button. To clear the history every time Agent Ransack exists check the 'Clear all history on exit'.




Options settings

When checked Agent Ransack restores options settings from the last search session, such as expression type, match case settings etc.

Window size

When checked Agent Ransack restores the Window positioning from the last session.

Column sort order

When checked Agent Ransack remembers the column sort order between searches.

Load last search on startup

When checked Agent Ransack loads, on startup, the criteria used for the last successful search. This option effectively overrides the 'Options settings' since the last search will include all the options.


Maximum List Sizes



Recent Files

The number of files shown in the Recent Files list on the File menu.

Drop Down Lists

The maximum number of items shown in the criteria drop down list boxes, e.g. File name, Containing text, and Look in. These items are remembered across sessions so the list from the previous session will be used to initialize the list of the new session.

Search Navigation

The maximum number of searches shown in the search navigation list. Searches are not remembered across sessions so the list is always initially empty.
