Description

This wouldn't be much of a problem if they would be shown at the very end of the search results. However TopicInfo, StartScript and Metadata is shown below those. So I have to scroll ~90 entries to get to those.

Where do those "added"(?) filters come from?
How do I prevent that they are shown in the search result?

open an addon (containing self-made data) > (menu) "edit" > "search" > change "text" to "record state" > set record state to "added" > click on "search"

It doesn't happen when "modified" is set instead of "added".

Added means everything that was added related to the file you are working on (i.e. not in any of the dependencies). There is plenty of stuff added in implicitly. For example in case you are basing only on Morrowind.esm new mandatory records that came with the expansions.

We also have a local project file that is maintained alongside your content file. This file contains persistent project data that is not supposed to go into the content file itself. These include record filters and debug profiles. Everything in the project file is also flagged as added.

Maybe we can extend the global search with additional filtering (i.e. only certain record types or exclude certain record types). But I would consider that a post 1.0 feature.
