Quick switcher Plugin - Scroll through all matching files

Use case or problem

When I want to change to another file and I remember some part of its name, I use the Quick switcher. But when I type words (e.g. ‘how’) that are used in a bunch of filenames, only 10 matches appear. Never more than 10.

Searching for ‘how’ inside ‘Obsidian Help’ vault with Obsidian. Only 10 results.

Proposed solution

Show all the matching filenames (file + path) adding a scrollbar. If you must set a limit, it could be higher… 100 results maybe?

Current workaround (optional)

I open my vault with VSCode or SublimeText, press Ctrl + P and search there.

how-sublime

Searching for ‘how’ inside ‘Obsidian Help’ vault with SublimeText shows all the 19 results. The first is ‘Advanced topics*How* Obsidian stores data.md’ , the other 18 are the 18 md files inside ‘How to’ folder. The scrollbar is present and the resultset can be navigated with keyboard.
