Distracting animation of search shortlist
During search, a dynamic short list of results is presented.
Once searching is completed and users focus in the editing area of a selected note, this shortlist is sliding away.
When the user focuses another window, the shortlist slides back in. This is quite distracting, as it draws attention to a window that has consciously been blurred, when the user is switching to another window.
Additionally, when the user is switching from search to editing, 99% of the window's surface starts to move around. Depending on the size of the shortlist, this can be a shift by multiple lines or whole paragraphs. Basically the reason why a note was selected during preview has to be visually located again on screen by the user, instead of staying in the place it was found at, causing a continuous mental load for instance when switching in between windows during collection of information from different web sites or apps.
I'm suggesting to keep the shortlist always visible when a search is active, and make it dismissible by the user instead of this happening automatically.
Update: screen capture of the animation — notice how the animation attracts attention to the Notorious window when the other window is focused, and how far the text cursor position changes when the Notorious window is re-focused via a mouse click.
