Search with Linux

The UI for the search feature is using an embedded web browser in Windows. This works very good when the displayed webpage is not loaded from a url as it is done in the tour blog.

When the displayed webpage is loaded from a url, the whole app will crash in Linux. This is the reason why the search view must be used with an external web browser. Any actions, e.g. select or edit a tour are still working, only the UI is not embedded in the app.



The search feature can be used with an external browser, this action search-external shows the web page url.

Current Limitations

The search feature is not yet fully implemented. Any tours, markers or waypoints which are added, updated or deleted, are not depicted in the search result.

Workaround for these limits

Close Search view and reopen it. This will create the fulltext index from scratch, which takes about 1-3 seconds for 4000 tours with a SSD.


Keyboard Shortcuts
