Title: Better Match Incremental Search
Post by: Lisa 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 (http://community.slickedit.com/index.php?topic=2784.0) and this Tip (http://community.slickedit.com/index.php?topic=2838.0)).

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.

you probably mean ALT+C and ALT+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.
