Better Match Incremental Search
« on: March 04, 2008, 02:35:41 PM »
As previously described, incremental search is very useful for highlighting matches in the editor as you type (see this Tip and this Tip).

However, with this type of search, sometimes there are too many matches. Two ways to get better results after initiating an incremental search are to toggle case-sensitive matching with Ctrl+C and to toggle whole word matching with Ctrl+W.

In v14 and lower, it is definitely Ctrl+C and Ctrl+W.
I have not installed v15 yet, but I would be surprised if it was changed.

Look in macros\search.e for _search_ft_toggle_keys to find the macro source for it.
