Using F3 for repeating search

  • Hi,
    In last versions, the behavior of F3 key to search again has changed.
    When I get to the end of the file, the search stops. Before, it would have jumped to the first find from the beginning of file, making it continuous... How can I get the old behavior back please?
    Thank you.

    Hi Ciprian,

    F3 simply repeats your last search. If it doesn't wrap around it simply means your last search (from search dialog) did not use this option.

    To fix your problem, hit Ctrl-F, tick "wrap around", type in search term, click "Find next". Now you can close Find dialog, and F3 search will wrap around at the end of file.

    BR,

  • You're a live saver! I didn't notice the untick of wrap around! Thank you! I've been bugged of this end of file notification for 2 months! lol
