Unwelcome GUI focus behavior when initiating a search dialog.

Reported by Roland Dobbins | November 13th, 2014 @ 12:41 PM

If I happen to have a particular mailbox selected and click Search, instead of retaining the GUI focus on the particular mailbox I've selected, the Search routine instead seizes focus and puts it on the 'master' aggregated Inbox at the top of the mailbox/folder list.

This is unacceptable. I often want to search within the context of a single mailbox or folder, and it's very annoying to have to move the cursor and re-select the mailbox or folder in which I want to search.

    It'll stay in the current mailbox if you hold down ⌥ when clicking “Search”. There is also a dedicated shortcut in the “Edit ▸ Find ▸ …” menu. (It is also possible to bind a different key to this using custom key bindings).
