making a saved search the default

Is there a way to make a saved search the default search ?

i.e: when the "issues" button is used without the dropdown ?

Hello Robert,
Hiding the dropdown is not possible. Could you please elaborate on this? What's your use case?

i dont want to hide the dropdown. I want my saved search to be the deafault search. i.e: when you click "issues". At the moment i have to use the drop down to select my saved search every single time.

The option you select should remain. Do I get it right that you log in as an ordinary user, not as guest? What's your YouTrack version?

If i select my saved search, 3 tickets are shown. If i then click "issues" all my tickets are shown without any filter.

I'm logged in as a normal user, and its a hosted youtrack 4.1

I try to figure out what's happening. Do you select the saved search from the combobox straight to the left of the search bar? Or do you select it from the sidebar to the left of the issues list?

I've been using the filters on the left. If i use the contexts dropdown then it's a little better (clicking issues now reuses the context), but as soon as i leave the webpage and come back it's forgotten the context, so now i'm changing the context rather than changing the filter all the time.

Can you set a context as default ?

Selecting an element from the sidebar is just another way to fill the search box and the search box content is not designed to be saved.
The designed way to work in some specific context is to select it from the dropdown. Once you've selected some entry there, it gets persisted into your profile and used as a default when you open a new window. AFAIU, this is not the case for you, so I'll ask our QA guys to investigate the situation.

ok, that makes sense.

Using the context dropdown it does indeed remember the context while i'm inside the youtrack webpage, but as soon as i close the tab on my browser and go back to youtrack again it reset to a different context.

I'm using chrome, on linux 64bit.

After you reopen a page, does it use Everything as a context each time?

Do you just type YouTrack url and press Enter or, probably, add a space/tab and then press Enter? The thing is that the later case involves a so called OpenSearch meaning you kind of search an empty string in YouTrack. OpenSearch in YouTrack is designed to work in the global (Everything) context.

aha, no, i use a bookmark, but your comment made me look at the url the browser had actually saved with the bookmark, and it'd included the context in there, which explains why it was reverting back.

Glad to here we've sorted this out. Btw, just FYI, when you pass a context in URL, it does not get persisted in a user's profile, but only affects the single window.
