global browser search and search short-cut

Post by vido » Fri Nov 30, 2018 10:28 pm

When searching in the browser we need to click the folder to search in.

I'd like the option to have a key-command (double tap shift or something like that) leading us to a global search prompt, where we can search all folders in Live.

Example: Double tap SHIFT: keyword "kick 2", result: samples containing kick 2 and the instrument Kick 2.

This may sound like a small thing, but for me who use a trackball on the iMac it usually takes me four-five "rolls" to find the right folder, and THEN search what I want. First hand off the keyboard to get to trackball. Then find the right folder with trackball/trackpad/mouse, THEN write the search-word.

Instead of just double tap SHIFT or whatever and search. Done. If we know what you're looking for, lets say "Operator" thats a lot of time saved. For each time we search. For all ableton live users around the world. Thats a lot of saved time, faster production and more focus when producing, and hopefully even better tracks :)
