    Other editors, Eclipse for example, have a behavior I quite like: if I select some text and hit F3 they do a Find Next on the selected text, rather than using the text I last typed into the Find dialog. On the other hand if no text is selected then F3 does Find Next using the last text from the Find dialog, or goes nowhere if the Find dialog hasn't been used yet.

    With this behavior it is often not necessary even to bring up the Find dialog.

    BTW the Find dialog should have some obvious way to close it. I discovered that ESC works but it's not, as I say, obvious :)

      Yes, I see you are right. Thank you!

      Uh, sorry, for some reason I didn't see the perfectly obvious "Close" button (blush).
