Search question
« on: September 10, 2020, 05:47:52 pm »
I would like to select a word in the source code and do ctrl+shift+f to invoke the Find in Files dialog box. I would like the "Search for" to automatically contain the selected text rather than typing it in the text box. Is that possible?

In the Find dialog you right-click (in empty space) and pick "Configure Options...".
Or: Tools > Options > Editing > Search

Set the "Selected text (if exists) option to ON.
