Title: find mini tool
Post by: jporkkahtc on July 15, 2016, 08:01:05 pm
Ctrl+F
Ctrl+F  to open the full window.
Alt+Tab away from slick.
Alt+Tab back to slick
Ctrl+F - now both the mini find and full find windows are open.
Using the mouse you can switch between the two and do different searches.

This is how it's supposed to work. If you don't want to use the mini find dialog, you need to change the option (Options>Editing>Search>Default Find and Replace GUI -- set to "Tool Window").

Its not that I don't want to use minifind, it is that it seems odd to allow both like this.




Can't get focus back to mini find:Ctrl+F
Typesomething.
Click in the text editor.
Edit, or whatever.
Ctrl+F
Nothing happens - focus should move to the mini-find window.
Ctrl+F Ctrl+F -- still nothing.


Only keyboard thing to do is <esc> which closes mini-find, then Ctrl+F will open it again.


Is there a keyboard way to leave mini-find open and return focus to the edit window?

Confirmed, there is a bug where focus isn't going back to the mini-find if it is already being displayed.  It is supposed to, so that will be fixed in next release.
