    Another related approach to the same problem would be the ability to retrieve search history. Then it wouldn't matter as much if the current search was dropped, because it could be quickly retrieved from the search history.

    A related challenge I have is: clicking on Home or another bullet clears the active search, so I lose my results and my search string. This is a problem when, for example, you do a search and then realize you want to have done the search from higher up in the outline. Remembering the past search strings as Jonathan suggest would help alleviate this frustration. 

    And related to Andreas' issue, ideally the search box would allow us the option of auto-clearing or persisting when we take an action that may or may not be intended to clear the search.
