File search in advanced MATE menu


is it possible to:

(1) Expand advanced MATE menu from it's default size? (to accommodate file search results)
(2) Get the file search results in advanced MATE menu itself... just like application search results?
(3) Indexing with file contents, now this one I don't know if it's like this by default of not.

I'm using Familiar panel layout in Ubuntu MATE 19.04 x64:

Thanks a lot in advance.

This is not currently possible within the menu itself, and as far as I know it is not being planned for, however if I get around to learning enough Python I am planning on making a menu that will, but it will be its own places menu not within the application menu

Not currently, no. But you should probably file the feature requests
(each separately) directly on
so that the developers can take a look.

Off the top of my head, I can tell you that 2 could be implemented
without a huge number of changes, but would still take time to develop.
Number 1 will probably depend on 2. And 3 sounds way out of scope for
the time being, so I'd say not for now.

@vkareh @Bernie many thanks for the replies.

In regards to filing feature requests on GitHub link you've provided, I should open a "New issue", right?

I'm little confuse between an "issue" and a "feature request". Thanks.

Ha, yes GitHub is not great at making that distinction... File it as an issue and put something like "FEATURE REQUEST: Blah blah blah", and then fill in the description with as much information as necessary for a developer to understand what they need to do

Thanks! :slight_smile:

Thank you so much :slight_smile:
