Suggestion: Ctrl-F3
« on: December 30, 2006, 01:49:32 pm »
Like in MS Visual Studio, find next occurrence of the word under cursor.
The shortcut should be Ctrl-F3.

we don't have that behavior, we have (in MS called Quick find : ctrl-f) just a simple find. It are 2 different behaviors, because in ctrl-f you don't want your search to change because in the meantime you might have selected something else in the editor. For ctrl-f3 the change of search selection is it's feature.

I understand the difference between ctrl-f and ctrl-F3.
I would like only to suggest the ctrl-F3 functionality. I miss it in CB.

Set "Find uses selected text" and see if it works for you.
If Find has never been primed with a selection, it will open the dlg box.
But after the first Find, it will find newly selected text w/o poping the dlg box.

Be careful about the Selected Text vs Global bullet, else it might keep telling you nothing found.

Thank you.

I tried it, but it was working the same way as classical find.
