Description ErikRoelofs 2012-10-11 10:29:00 UTC
When searching through a large project there often appear false positives. (That match what you searched for, but aren't what you are looking for)

It would be very helpful to have an option to remove these from the list of search results, so that you can keep a concise list of all the items you were looking for opened in it, without it being cluttered with irrelevant search results.

Obviously making the same search again should return all these false positives, but as long as the search is open it would be nice to have a way to remove unnecesary hits from it.
