Reset Instant Search

Instant Search is a powerful feature in Understand that builds a search index out of the analyzed code for immediate lookup. Occasionally that index gets too large or gets corrupted and Instant Search can stop working. Fortunately it’s pretty easy to reset it, just delete the following folder:

  • Windows C:\Users\USERID\AppData\Roaming\SciTools\index
  • Linux/Unix ~/.config/SciTools/index
  • Mac OSX ~/Library/Application Support/SciTools/index
    • This directory is hidden by default in Finder. One way to navigate to it without using the terminal is to select the Go menu from the Finder menu bar while holding down option. Then Library will show up in the menu.
