I think that the find-dialog is way to tall. I am working on a macbook air, and I don’t have that much screen real estate. It would be beneficial for me, and probably others, to have it as small as possible.
Did you try to override the height in yout
Maybe there could be Shft + Command + t or something that provides an alternative light-weight finding filter down at bottom of screen. Sometimes my brain needs to see the code (which gets hidden by file finder popup) in order to quickly remember which file I’m going to switch to. In such cases, the main pop up tends to make me lose my train of thought. But of course I still use the main finder dialog.
Just a thought, thanks!
