Hello Zigbert
I am using tahr-6.0.5 with pFind-6.1 OOTB.

When pFind is invoked via Menu>Filesystem, the searchbox is populated with "Search text", and changes to blank as the cursor gets there. The purpose I presume is to inform the user to enter the target text in the window. I think a combination of a static "Enter Search text" label below an empty window and code change will achieve the same objective but without the undesirable results described below.

For purposes of "copy/paste" text, I usually highlight the text and use the middle button of the mouse to paste. It is faster and uses fewer mouse clicks than right-click+Copy/Paste [Ctl-C/Ctl-V] which I use less often. If I hightlight a search target somewhere and invoke pFind, the highlighted text buffer is clobbered and replaced with "Search text" and the middle mouse button doesn't work. Would you please consider modifying the code to at least avoid the clobbering? You could retain the hiding "Search text" in the window and modify the code to avoid the clobbering or replace the hiding "Search text" with a static "Enter Search text" label as suggested above and code to not clobber the buffer. Your choice of course.

TIA

I had an idea you'd found a way to display it there but make it disappear when you click there... am I imagining it?

A suggestion:

When there is more that 500 results, then automatically save a text file
of the paths in /root or $HOME folder and warn user .

Going to home is easier than /tmp

Yes, that is possible, but the textfield (entry) has the default focus to write your search strings without any clicking...

I made a right click utility (pfind plus) for the distros that don't have a right click available to search in folder.
