Clearing Quick Search entries

Hi:

I am using URP 3.5.4.7.

I try to remove all entries from the Quick Search combo, but cannot (Options|Search/Reminders|Remove All).

Restaring does not remove the entries. Is there something I am missing?

Thank you.

Jon

It appears that Remove All doesn't work if the list was not added to during the current session. Either initiate a new quick search (to add to the list) and then Remove All, or manually clear the list by exiting UR and deleting the registry key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Kinook Software\Ultra Recall\Settings\QuickSearch.

Yes, but not a high priority since there are two workarounds.

I did both but the list remains. Is there another location where the list is stored?

No, unless you're running UR from a USB drive (then they would be in Options.ini in the same path as UltraRecall.exe).

I'm not, yet it is still there. I saw the list in the registry and deleted the entire key. I haven't a clue why it remains.

Me either. Was UR definitely not running when deleting the registry key?

I am 100% certain. But just in case, I rebooted and tried again. The interesting thing is that I see, in the registry, only the newest quick search entries. I do not see the entire list that drops down from the box in UR.

I delete the entire key and fire up UR again. Two observations. First, alll of the entries are still present, even those I just deleted from the registry. Second, unlike before, I can now add to the list. But I cannot delete the list. Does it also exist within the database? This seems unlikely as the same list appears acrosss all my databases.

One more related question, please. While experimenting with this problem I typed "EEEEEEEEEEEE" (no quotes) in the quick search box. It turned up a bizillion hits which is not true. I then ticked "Match whole words" with the same results. Why?

By the way, I just added this stupid entry to my list and can't get rid of it!

Jon

The list is stored and loaded only from the aforementioned registry key. Please ZIP and post or send to support@kinook.com:
1) The info from Help | About | Install Info
2) Run RegEdit and export the registry key "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Kinook Software\Ultra Recall"
3) A screen shot showing the list containing items not in the registry

UR does not create a keyword for a word with the same letter repeated 4+ times (i.e., eeee), and because of this, it also discards such words from a quick search, so all items will match if the search only contains words like that.

You don't have to wait for the search to complete (cancel the search, select another item, or type in a different search).

You could still search (unindexed) for such words in item text by doing an advanced search of Item Text matches wildcard *eeee*.

Sorry for the delay, but I had trouble accessing your site.

Registry export.

By the way, the two items listed in the quick search key are NOT PRESENT in the quick search dropdown box. There is something wrong here.

Can you search your registry for a search phrase that is in the list but not under the QuickSearch registry key? Are you possibly running UR in some compatibility mode (shortcut properties -> Compatibility) that could be causing a registry redirect?
