GEPS 041: New Selector

919 bytes added, 20 February
Clever search for each selector
# Runtime and performance
# Selection expected by the user, marked and tagged objects
# refining a selection
====[[Gramps_4.2_Wiki_Manual_-_Filters#Filter_vs._Search|Filter vs. Search]]====
# Few fast filter rules, by default
# Consistency, mixup of features and widgets
# Hierarchically grouping records (e.g., Person, Place) in the Selector cripples sorting capabilities. Sub-sorting within grouping by "Last Changed" is of little value compared for the entire list. Add option to use Flat lists?
{{man note|Note, there was a [[#Interactive_Search|Gtk SearchEntry bug (latency and collapsed seizure)]] limiting a good search match: max_length(3).|Fixed since gramps 4.2.0, see bug report {{bug|1450}}.}}

Ability to also use one search field matching on multiple columns (''names'', ''ID'', ''dates'', etc ...)

Tested some years ago with remaining indirect and unfixed issues (title, model, editors) because the focus was on possible modifications on Selectors. Should take it as a draft.
