Search results disappear

Hi there,

I encounter sometimes an issue with the search in 5.0.97-beta.33+fdcd4e51c.

1. I type keywords in the search line (not in the advanced search window).
2. A get the items.
3. I open one item in the built-in pdf reader.
4. I read it.
5. I go back to the library where I expect to see my search results, but they are gone. The search line is empty, and I see all items, as before I searched.

    Unless this happens simply from opening the PDF and closing the tab immediately, we'd need the exact steps to reproduce, including exactly what you're doing in the PDF tab.

    A Debug ID for reproducing it would also be helpful.
  • I encounter this if I highlight the document. I haven't tested other edits. It would be great if highlighting didn't clear the search results.
  • @JimHokanson Just creating a highlight doesn't seem to clear search results. Could you give exact steps what are you doing?
  • @martynas_b For me it is that simple ... Here's a video demonstrating it:

    The video shows me doing a search, getting some results, opening one of those, and then when I highlight some refresh occurs on the main screen and I lose the search results. Note in the video I am trying to show the size of the scroll bar as one indicator of how many entries are showing up from the search vs. showing up after highlighting in the document.
  • Wondering if this has been confirmed as a bug or not? Happy to try to provide more info. Would love to see this be fixed!
  • Can you provide a Debug ID for it? We still can't reproduce this.
  • searched for articles with my last name name, opened a file "Predicting outcomes ..." - highlighted a bit of text on page 439, then went back to the main window where my search result was in the process of disappearing. ID: D313222159
  • Thanks — this is now fixed in the latest Zotero beta, and the fix will be included in Zotero 6.0.19.
