Title: Incremental Search Forward/Reverse Shortcuts
Post by: Lisa on February 21, 2008, 02:41:08 pm
We've already described how incremental search can be used to highlight matches as you type (click here (http://community.slickedit.com/index.php?topic=2784.0)). After initiating an incremental search, special shortcut keys let you move forward and backward easily.

To search forward incrementally, use the i_search command (Ctrl+S). To search in reverse, use the reverse_i_search command (Ctrl+R). If you initially start searching forward with Ctrl+S and decide to search backward, Ctrl+R will begin searching backward. The opposite applies if you start searching backward and decide to search forward: just use Ctrl+S. In both cases, your search string is preserved.
