Title: Two keyboard shortcuts
Post by: ikk on August 16, 2006, 07:09:41 pm
Hello,

I'm looking for two keyboard functions:
a. select word under the cursor, same as mouse double click but using only keyboard.
b. quick search, like Ctrl+F3 and Ctrl+Shift+F3 in MSVC 6.0. i know that pressing Ctrl+F opens search dialog and word which was under the cursor is inserted as actual search string. i'd like to have it under one command, without seeing search dialog.

Is there any chance this ll be implemented in new CB version?

C::B is great, im plamning to use it over MSVC.

Find next F3.
Find previous Shift+F3.

We had this implemented for a while, but many users were unhappy with it, so it was removed again. You'll have to press Ctrl-F again, sorry (but at least the current selection will automatically be filled in).

I enjoyed that feature also. I always wondered why we couldn't have had an option to turn it on or off.
