Ctrl+F3 searching is broken

(1/2) > >>

jporkkahtc:
I use Ctrl+F3 to quick search a lot.
Now it doesn't repeat.

Repro
1. Place cursor at the start of a word
2. Ctrl+F3 -- the word is highlighted.
3. Ctrl+F3 again -- the next occurrence is found
4. Ctrl+F3 again -- now it fails to find more occurrences.
5. Press right-arrow -- the selection is cleared.
6. Ctrl+F3 again -- the next occurrence is found
7. Ctrl+F3 again -- now it fails to find more occurrences.

Seems like at step 4 is must be limited to searching in the current selection?

Lee:
I have tried default config and one your configs you have uploaded in the past, and am not seeing what you are seeing in any version so far.  Is there a particular example file or language mode I need to be in?  There isn't any state carried over from quick-search to quick-search.  It always rebuilds the search word from either current selection or word at cursor every time.

jporkkahtc:

So I messed up the repro steps - pressing F3 sometimes instead of always Ctrl+F3

Fixed:
Repro
1. Place cursor at the start of a word
2. Ctrl+F3  -- the word is highlighted.
3. F3       -- the next occurrence is found
4. F3 again -- now it fails to find more occurrences.
5. Press right-arrow -- the selection is cleared.
6. F3 again -- the next occurrence is found
7. F3 again -- now it fails to find more occurrences.

Seems like at step 4 is must be limited to searching in the current selection?

jporkkahtc:
Also note that if I using big-find to search for something, then F3 works to find the next occurrence.

marksun:
I repro as well (I've only tested with c++).  It's just the F3 that's busted.  Two alternate repros are
1)  Ctrl+I and type a word to find.  F3 finds the next one.  Subsequent F3's don't budge unless you move the cursor to the right by one.
2) Ctrl+F and type a word to find.  Press the Find Next arrow and nothing changes.  Again, move the cursor to the right allows you to use the FindNext or F3 to find the next occurance.

F3 seems to fail if the word you're searching for is still selected by a previous find. (Note: manual selection of the word doesn't repro the issue)
