Oftentimes i find myself in a situation in which i have searched for 2 or more values in one Scan Tab but i wanna narrow it down, because if i do it after naming gets messy because its hard to tell which value is connected to which ingame value.

It would be great if i can open a 2nd or 3rd tab and copy the Results from the first tab into them to diversivy the search and safe scans/time

I didnt read thro all Forums but i hope noone requested something like this yet, if possible i'd like to get some feedback and hope this could get implemented

it could look something like i uploaded, maybe with a Ctrl+V to input the values (if thats possible without too bad lag)

best regards
comps

The values in the list you see are not all the results.
The results are stored on the disk.
I asked DB to change how it works (data is written twice at the moment), not sure whether anything's changed since there was no new release for a year now.
Back to your request, once my suggestion was implemented, it would be fairly straightforward to fork a previously performed search (i.e. reuse previous search data in another search window like you suggest).
Would it be useful? Yes. However, truth to be told, it's not a critical feature I would use on a daily basis. I think 98% of the searches are covered by the current functionality. But, as I said, I wish the files were handled differently.
