Re: [platform-ui-dev] How do I ask if editor is pinned?


The search view is constantly destroying the context I am working on. By separating  the editors I am developing in from the editors I am doing research  I can keep my context without having to think about it. In the current implementation, the user has to remember what he was working on so he can manually go back after browsing the search result. Since we have to search a lot due the size of the frameworks we use/work we are constantly having to manually go back to the initial context.

Browsing search results is very often a read-only interaction.  I
frequently use search to learn how to use API or to see references to my
own API.  Very seldom do I intend to edit the results view in place.  I am
in favor of a Search perspective similar to Leapfrog.

P.S.  Are you sure you meant to say orthogonal?

What is the rational behind a search perspective?

For me, searching is not an independent task. It's orthogonal to the task I

am working on and the context I am working in. The working context
potentially implies the search scope but even this is not for granted.
