Global search and editor search preferences don't sync

Quick Search


Reproduction steps:
1. Create a new project
2. Open the Global Search window
3. Open Search Preferences (Edit > Preferences... > Search)
4. Disable any enabled Provider Setting in Preferences
5. Open context menu in Search window, notice that the same provider is still enabled

Expected result: Search Preferences are synced in both the context menu and Editor Preferences.
Actual result: Search Preferences and Editor Preferences are not synced

Reproducible with: 2021.2.0a1, 2021.2.0b2
Not reproducible with: 2021.1.13f1
Couldn't test: 2018.4.33f1, 2019.4.28f1, 2020.3.13f1 (Global Search was added in 2021.1)

  1. Resolution Note (fix version 2022.1):

    Fixed in 2022.1.0a7

    The current behavior is the expected one:
    - When disabling a provider from the preference, we expect the currently opened Search window to have those provider be disabled.
    - When ENABLING a provider from the preference, we DO NOT update the provider in the various search window. There are multiple ways to open the search window with only a subset number of providers enabled (to have a more focused search) and we do not want to mess with these configs.
