I have the Filter Bar set as the default mode for FAYT.
If the option Always, or Whenever a filter is set are used for when to display the Filter Bar, one must hit Esc twice to close it (after reading the link below, I understand that this is expected). For example, if you type "file", hitting escape will delete all characters but "f". A second press of Esc will close the bar. Why the bar isn't cleared, I don't know.
If the option Only when editing the filter is chosen instead, the Filter Bar always closes on first press of Esc, which may or may not be intentional. Also in this mode, pressing
* when the Filter Bar is closed, will open the bar and filter by
*, without displaying
* in the field.
It appears the first issue was already discussed some time ago, and perhaps a fix was never issued?
Edit: In fact, the asterisks not showing issue may be a bigger one and related to something else I was experiencing: sometimes the Filter Bar just doesn't open, but it is filtering (as indicated by hidden items in red appearing in the status bar). After a few more characters, it shows, and sometimes only with the last few characters typed. Other times, the Filter Bar shows up on first character, so I'm not sure what's going on.
