Hi,

When I'm using the menu Search and i type something to search, then in the list of found items, if have to move the mouse right to the side of that menu and then down to the app i want.
If i move the mouse on a diagonal, the menu disappears because the other menu below the Search is activated.

So, in my opinion it should have some time before activating other menus...
Like 300 milliseconds before any menu/sub-menu is shown.

I think this could prevent other menus from being immediately activated and the Search menu disappearing.

I don't know if I'm explaining well the behavior.
I'm sending some photos.

Maybe someone else is have the same problem, but this is very annoying because the menu search is very useful, but not practical because is always disappearing or i have to be very careful in moving the mouse or if i pass through another menu it disappears immediately.

This should be fixed to help working faster using the search menu.

Thanks
Note: Hope this can help in the development of Symenu.

A fast workaround.
Since you have to use the keyboard to make a search, why don't you use a special keyboard shortcut to make the search appear?
This way you don't need to use the mouse to click search, move the cursor on the side menu, leave the mouse and use the keyboard to type your searching text. Your hands will stay on the keyboard for the whole time typing the shortcut plus the text searched.
Could it work for you?

Hi,

Thanks, that could be a solution.

What I'm doing now is to click on the menu going to the search option and then after typing, i just use the arrow key down to the app i need and press Enter.

I didn't think about using a shortcut because i work a lot with more than one computer at the same time, so I'm always using remote access to work with my other computers and all have SyMenu with the same shortcut, so i don't know on what pc the menu is being called.
But i can always have different shortcuts for different computers.... I'll give it a try.

Thanks.

It's exactly what I'm usually doing.
I set different shortcuts for every PC (local and remote one) and it works well.
At the beginning it's difficult to memorize the different shortcuts but then it works very well.
