Description Alex Regueiro 2013-06-20 14:06:46 UTC
To keep with the Mac OS X standard UI conventions and for the sake of simplicity (see e.g. Finder.app), it seems superfluous that the text "Press 'Cmd.' to search.' appears in the search box in the top-right (when it is not-selected). The shortcut can be easily figured out via the Search menu in any case, so it doesn't make any sense to clutter the top bar.

Was part of our new design - @david: what do you think ?

The UI looks cleaner without the text IMO - but it's not really distracting me.

Sounds good to me.

There's been a regression of this issue!

It was a design issue to show that again.
