Another problem I have is that I often _don't_ want to refresh my search. Some of my mail processing, while not visible in the search window, since we don't have a way to refresh tags yet, will remove some of the current search results from matching the search query. For example, I like to have notmuch folder definitions with "tag:unread" in them. For those search views, once I've looked at any of the mails, they no longer match the query. Sometimes I want to refresh the search so that those mails are no longer visible, sometimed I want to apply an action on all the visible messages which I've just processed. When I visit a folder view, what intent do I have? Am I returning to a 'moment-ago' processing view that was interrupted? Or am I wanting to do the search again on the current contents of the database? I could easily see mental models that match either way. I think I read that Carl plans to update the tags in a search view at some point, without removing threads automatically. Perhaps there ought to be a way to colorize threads which are displayed but no longer match the search criterion? -Mark _______________________________________________ notmuch mailing list email@example.com http://notmuchmail.org/mailman/listinfo/notmuch
