Steps to reproduce
- Enter Search mode, whether clicking the search icon or using hotkey
- Type some search terms
- Click on some found text. In particular, select some nested text which is not visible (unfolded) in normal view, but which is shown because it matches the search
3½ Bonus: Maybe even select multiple nodes
4.A. Try [ESC] to get out of search mode. Doesn’t work when search box has lost focus
4.B. Click the ‘x’ in the search box to leave search mode
I am pretty sure that 4.A used to work (maybe months ago), meaning this is a regression.
But no matter if I choose 4A or 4B, I expect to keep the input focus on the text I had chosen in 3. And in the 3½ bonus case, I expect the selection to be preserved.
The intended use case: I want to reorganize some nodes, e.g. move some node to the top of a list, even if it is a nested node.
I find the node using search. Then, to move the node, I have to exit search, so that I can correctly place the node. But when back in normal mode the node is lost, maybe even no longer visible. So I have to find it again.
I expected if the cursor was on the node in search view, that node would still be unfolded, with input focus on that node, once I exit search mode.
Workaround: While still in search, collapse the parent nodes and reopen them. That way they will stay open when going to the normal mode.
