I suggest you ...

Add a Find command to History

I'd like to be able to search through my History window. Ctrl+F should bring up the find box, which should filter what shows up in the History window to show only things that match the find text.

        I would just add that the find box must be able to search more than the reference/article/page# and short title currently displayed in the History pane. Things like the full title, tags, and resource type must be able to be filtered as well. It would especially useful if it were possible to search for keywords in the vicinity of where you were reading. I would also suggest adding the full title and the time and date of each entry to the History pane listing.

        Perhaps this could be alternatively accomplished in the search pane. If a basic search could be limited to the sections viewed in the desired time period and filtered by resource tags, when it was accessed (not just the last time it was accessed), resource type, ect., then that might work too.

        This is really needed. I just spent hours searching for something I read in a commentary last week. That is something that should be easy to do.

        And please make it stop automatically scrolling you to the top of the History pane each time you click on an entry. Very annoying and time-consuming to find your place again!
