Search focus

Jimmy Soho 7 years ago updated by bnip 7 years ago 1

When using Ctrl+F / Cmd+F, i.e. while searching, the focus stays in the search box. I would much rather have the focus at the beginning of the matched selection, so I can immediately start typing there. This is what I loved so much about textmate, saves loads of time. If I wanted to search for something else, (i.e. get the focus in the search box) I would hit Cmd+F again.

I prefer it the way it is now, because you get your results instantly. You might not even have to type out the whole word you're searching for. Press enter to jump to the next occurrence. Press escape to go back to the editor. We all have different preferences, I suppose.
