It would be "convenient" and "useful" if there was a way to say that the "Find Symbols" scope was synchronized with the "Find and Replace" scope (aka "Look in").

The current options are:
1. Show ... current solution [enhancement to this]
2. Only classes, structs & namespaces

The request/proposal is to an alternate (1) "Show" radio-checkbox that allows setting the "Show" filter to correspond to the "Find and Replace" global search choice in Visual Studio.

I imagine it could be implemented by "subfiltering" (1) to only show those `Find Symbol` "File : Directory" entries that match the "Find and Replace" "Look in" filter.

Thanks for the consideration. VAssistX is a fantastic and invaluable addition to Visual-Studio.

This is an interesting idea. However, our approach is to have different tools for different scopes. For example,

- If you are interested in the current file, we have alt+m, where you can filter all kind of symbol types from the current file
- If you want to search in a class (and optionally its base-classes), we have Goto Member. It is a menu item for Goto Related (alt+shift+g)
- As you already mentioned, solutions/external filtering is available in the alt+shift+s dialog (Find Symbol)
- The closest we have to filtering to directories is if you right click over the symbol list in alt+shift+s dialog, you can also enable File Columns so you can see where are your results are coming from

I know, this is not the same what you asked for but hope this helps a little bit to make use of Visual Assist's features.
