Some keywords which is aimed for retrieving the respective application target from the system do not produce any output and fail when applications’ list is not displayed (which is the case with Application Finder default window (picture on top). Nevertheless Application Finder is able to list this same applications when the list is invoked manually (picture on bottom).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

1. From desktop panel select Applications → Run program…
2. Enter (as example): “screenshot”
3. Click Launch
4. Extend the list

Actual results:

Expected results:
Input to be able to produce available outputs as it is entered and finally succeed once it has been entirely entered.

Comment 1 Kevin Fenzi 2017-11-23 21:47:26 UTC
I think this is by design because the smaller/unexpanded app here is really xfce4-run, which is expected a command to run, it's not for searching. The open version is xfce4-appfinder and can be used to find applications. 

If you would like to have this change, can you file a bug upstream at ?
