I don't need that much help to do my job.

I don't like screen clutter.

At least it should stay off for the rest of the session once it's clicked off. Currently it pops up every time I click to another page, which I need to do all the time. Not good for the UX or BP.

Maybe put it on the top menu bar.

It's an intrusion for the visitor who doesn't need immediate help.

It's a much-welcomed feature, Derek, but personally, the social media "sticky" gets in my way. I'm the same way over the online "chat" feature at my bank website.

+1 for putting it in the top bar or just simply improving the Find tool.

Extremely Annoying!

EricLNZ wrote on 2/25/2020, 4:50 PM

Very, very annoying. I wish I'd found this thread earlier as I've spent ages trying unsuccessfully to get it to go away permanently.

EricLNZ wrote on 2/25/2020, 4:59 PM

Hmmm. The same pesky thing appears on the Magix Community Forum but with Magix instead of Vegas in the small box.

rraud wrote on 2/25/2020, 5:37 PM

As well in the Magix Sound Forge forum. I would like it forever gone immediately if not sooner. It is a real forking annoyance.

fr0sty wrote on 2/25/2020, 10:20 PM

Good intent. A few tweaks would fix it. As suggested, nest it into a menu, out of the way, and only show a notification announcing its existence once. Allow it to be disabled.

Persistence is not user-friendly, by definition.

I don't care so much on the PC but on a phone this takes up a lot of screen area.

FayFen wrote on 2/26/2020, 1:24 AM

It's a feature.

Not sure what are you talking about. Newer seen it.

Is it in the forum? If yes, then probably uBlock Origin & blocker on my router do their job well.

Adblock Plus on Firefox isn't killing it for me. @set which blocker are you using?

vkmast wrote on 2/26/2020, 1:54 AM

This needs to get fixed, not blocked. Anyway, currently "Find..." though far from perfect is still what I will use. At least you get to browse for your poison from the list.

EricLNZ wrote on 2/26/2020, 2:00 AM

Blocking would be a temporary fix before it sends me bonkers on another hot humid summer night.

@EricLNZ luckily we have here the season that used to be "the winter" 😁.
