RFE: UI to search history from contact/chat window
I sometimes want to search through the history of a conversation I have an open window for. However, there is no direct option to search through this conversation, and I need to go to View/History, enter the name of the contact, then type in the search string.
It would be convenient to be able to search straight from the conversation window. Here are a few ideas about how it could work:
- ideally, show a list of (only) matching messages, highlighting the search string, and allowing to show the conversation around the selected message, in the conversation window,
- simply show the Conversation History window, pre-populated with the contact/Chat, ready for a search string to be typed; this is a low/hanging fruit.
Another cool feature for the history in general (and this feature, too) would be to do fuzzy search, if fuzzywuzzy is installed.
