Can’t confirm on Chrome/Win10, not sure if it’s specific to Win7 or fixed after you posted this. cc:@Erica.

I tested it in Win 10. This is still the case.

I mean, when the document name is “a”, then when I click “a”, the result is the document “a” is opened with search information (or should I call it a filter?) “cccc”.

But, if I click on the item “b”, it open the document “a”, focus in “b”, but without the search information/filter “cccc”.

Ah, ok. I see what you mean now. I’m sorry to hear that you’re still experiencing this bug.

Clicking “a”

Clicking “b”

Hi @Chris, sorry for digging this up :grimacing:! We’re cleaning up the bugs and sorry for not responding properly back then.

Now that I look at the bug, it sounds like it’s the expected behavior. Initially the search filter was preserved, but many users did not like that, which led to the current behavior. If you want to preserve the search filter, please click on the document name instead.

Sorry for any inconveniences!
